⚠️ We've moved!

Hi there!

To reduce project dependency on 3rd party paid services the StackStorm TSC has decided to move the Q/A from this forum to Github Discussions. This will make user experience better integrated with the native Github flow, as well as the questions closer to the community where they can provide answers.

Getting the output of uuid execution is empty

I run a uuid action . When I try to retrieve the output on the endpoint /api/v1/executions/{id}/output I don’t get any data on the response. How can I use the /output endpoint?

Can you paste a curl example of the API call and the response? (Please remove any sensitive data such as API token). Also, do you see any output when you do st2 execution get ${id}?

curl -X POST \
  https://localhost/api/v1/executions/ \
  -H 'Content-Type: application/json' \
  -H 'X-Auth-Token: {token}' \
  -d '{
  "action": "core.uuid"

I get the execution id from the response.

Then :

curl -X GET \
  https://localhost/api/v1/executions/{execution_id}/output \
  -H 'Cache-Control: no-cache' \
  -H 'Content-Type: application/json' \
  -H 'X-Auth-Token: {token}'

The response is empty. Although I get a 200 ok status code.

I think that /output is for streaming action output. That’s not going to be relevant for this, since it is not a long-running action.

If you just want the result, then get that instead - e.g. https://localhost/api/v1/executions/{execution_id}/attribute/result

I also recommend running st2 --debug run core.uuid to see some of the API calls being made there.

I cannot see the /result endpoint documented. Can you please link to it? I get a response “The resource could not be found.” when I try to access it.

I found that /attribute/result can do the job. Is that what you mean?

Sorry, my mistake - I should have copied & pasted, rather than typed it out. Yes, attribute/result is probably what you want.

I’ll fix my original post
