»Vagrant Cloud API

»Using the API

Vagrant Cloud provides an API for users to interact with Vagrant Cloud for experimentation, automation, or building new features and tools on top of our existing application.

»Authentication

Some API endpoints require authentication to create new resources, update or delete existing resources, or to read a private resource.

Clients can authenticate using an authentication token. The token can be passed to Vagrant Cloud one of two ways:

  1. (Preferred) Set the Authorization header to "Bearer " and the value of the authentication token.
  2. Pass the authentication token as an access_token URL parameter.

Examples below will set the header, but feel free to use whichever method is easier for your implementation.

»Request and Response Format

Requests to Vagrant Cloud which include data attributes (POST or PUT/PATCH) should set the Content-Type header to "application/json", and include a valid JSON body with the request.

JSON responses may include an errors key, which will contain an array of error strings, as well as a success key. For example:

{
  "errors": ["Resource not found!"],
  "success": false
}

»Response Codes

Vagrant Cloud may respond with the following response codes, depending on the status of the request and context:

»Success

»200 OK
»201 Created
»204 No Content

»Client Errors

»401 Unauthorized

You do not have authorization to access the requested resource.

»402 Payment Required

You are trying to access a resource which is delinquent on billing. Please contact the owner of the resource so that they can update their billing information.

»403 Forbidden

You are attempting to use the system in a way which is not allowed. There could be required request parameters that are missing, or one of the parameters is invalid. Please check the response errors key, and double-check the examples below for any discrepancies.

»404 Not Found

The resource you are trying to access does not exist. This may also be returned if you attempt to access a private resource that you don't have authorization to view.

»422 Unprocessable Entity
»429 Too Many Requests

You are currently being rate-limited. Please decrease your frequency of usage, or contact us at support+vagrantcloud@hashicorp.com with a description of your use case so that we can consider creating an exception.

»Server Errors

»500 Internal Server Error

The server failed to respond to the request for an unknown reason. Please contact support+vagrantcloud@hashicorp.com with a description of the problem so that we can investigate.

»503 Service Unavailable

Vagrant Cloud is temporarily in maintenance mode. Please check the HashiCorp Status Site for more information.

»Creating a usable box from scratch

In order to create a usable box on Vagrant Cloud, perform the following steps:

  1. Create a new box
  2. Create a new version
  3. Create a new provider
  4. Upload a box image for that provider
  5. Release the version
