SuggestGrid REST API

SuggestGrid Rest Documentation

We will walk through how to get started with SuggestGrid Rest Documentation in three steps:

  1. Configuration

  2. Post actions

  3. Get recommendations

In this guide we will demonstrate how to display personalized recommendations on an existing Rest project.

We have a movie catalog Rest application, SuggestGridMovies, similar to IMDb. For logged in users we want to display movies that similar people viewed on movie pages. Let's implement this feature in five minutes with SuggestGrid!

Once you sign up for SuggestGrid, you'll see your SUGGESTGRID_URL parameter on the dashboard in the format below:

http://{user}:{pass}@{region}.suggestgrid.space/{app-uuid}

You can authenticate your application using SUGGESTGRID_URL environment variable like the example below:

$ export SUGGESTGRID_URL=http://{user}:{pass}@{region}.suggestgrid.space/{app-uuid}

```shell
$ curl -XGET $SUGGESTGRID_URL

# Status code: 200
{"uuid":"76650795-2bb2-4644-8dd7-dfe5e670d31c","version":"0.1.31","authentication":"private","subscription":"Basic","limitations":{"types":{"count":3,"limit":5},"actions":{"count":9,"limit":10000000}}}

Every recommendation logic needs to belong to a type. For this demonstration we can create an implicit type named as views. This could be done either from the dashboard or with a snippet like this:

$ curl -XPUT $SUGGESTGRID_URL/v1/types/views

# Status code: 200
{"message":"Type `views` is created with `implicit` rating."}

2. Post actions

Once the type exists, let's start posting actions. We should invoke SuggestGrid client's when an user views an item in our application.

We can do this by putting the snippet below on the relevant point:

$ curl -XPOST $SUGGESTGRID_URL/v1/actions -d '{
    "type": "views",
    "user_id": "123",
    "item_id": "456"
}'

# Status code: 201
{"message":"Action posted."}
$ curl -XPOST $SUGGESTGRID_URL/v1/actions -d '{
    "type": "views",
    "user_id": "123",
    "item_id": "451"
}'

# Status code: 201
{"message":"Action posted."}
$ curl -XPOST $SUGGESTGRID_URL/v1/actions -d '{
      "type": "views",
      "user_id": "12",
      "item_id": "451"
}'

# Status code: 201
{"message":"Action posted."}

The more actions SuggestGrid gets, more relevant and diverse its responses are.

Finally, let's show "movies similar users viewed" on movie pages.

SuggestGrid needs recommendation models for returning recommendations. Model generation is scheduled in every 24 hours. In addition, instant model generations can be triggered on the dashboard.

Once the first model generated for 'views' type, recommendations could be get using a snippet like the following:

$ curl -XPOST $SUGGESTGRID_URL/v1/recommend/items -d '{
    "type": "views",
    "user_id": "12"
}'

# Status code: 200
{"items":[{"id":"451"},{"id":"456"}],"count":2}

Type methods are used for creating, getting, and deleting types. Refer to types for an overview.

PUT /v1/types/{type} -d {type_request_body}

Creates a new type.

Creating an implicit type:

$ curl -XPUT $SUGGESTGRID_URL/v1/types/view -d '{
   "rating" : "implicit"
}'

# Status code: 201
{"message":"Type view is created with implicit rating."}

or:

$ curl -XPUT $SUGGESTGRID_URL/v1/types/checkout

# Status code: 201
{"message":"Type checkout is created with implicit rating."}

Creating an explicit type:

$ curl -XPUT $SUGGESTGRID_URL/v1/types/rating -d '{
   "rating" : "explicit"
}'

# Status code: 201
{"message":"Type rating is created with explicit rating."}

Creating a type with the same name causes an error:

$ curl -XPUT $SUGGESTGRID_URL/v1/types/rating

# Status code: 409
{"error_uri":"https://suggestgrid.com/docs/errors#type-already-exists","error_text":"Type Already Exists","error_description":"Type already exists."}

Creating a type with invalid rating type causes an error:

$ curl -XPUT $SUGGESTGRID_URL/v1/types/type -d '{
   "rating" : "invalid"
}'

# Status code: 422
{"error_uri":"https://suggestgrid.com/docs/errors#invalid-rating-type","error_text":"Invalid Rating Parameter","error_description":"Rating parameter must be either explicit or implicit."}

POST /v1/actions/_bulk --data-binary @file

Posts bulk actions to SuggestGrid. The recommended method for posting multiple actions at once.

If you're providing text file input to curl, you must use the --data-binary flag instead of -d (or --data). The latter doesn't preserve newlines.

There's a limit of lines, hence number of objects you can send in one requests. That's default to 10000.

Bulk data structure:

{action}\n
{action}\n
{action}\n
{action}\n
{action}\n

An example request for bulk action request is the following:

$ cat actions

{"type": "ratings", "user_id" : "100", "item_id" : "10", "rating" : 2}
{"type": "ratings", "user_id" : "100", "item_id" : "11", "rating" : 3}
{"type": "ratings", "user_id" : "100", "item_id" : "12", "rating" : 5}
{"type": "ratings", "user_id" : "100", "item_id" : "13", "rating" : 2}
{"type": "ratings", "user_id" : "100", "item_id" : "14", "rating" : 3}

$ curl -XPOST $SUGGESTGRID_URL/v1/actions/_bulk --data-binary @actions

# Status code: 201
{"message":"Bulk action post is successful.","errors":[]}

GET /v1/actions ( type | user_id | item_id | older_than | size | from )

Get actions. Defaut responses will be paged by 10 actios each. Type, user id, item id, or older than parameters could be provided. The intersection of the provided parameters will be returned.

If no query parameters is provided, all the actions will be returned:

$ curl -XGET $SUGGESTGRID_URL/v1/actions

# Status code: 200
{"actions":[{"type":"default_type","timestamp":1490128243,"user_id":"325","item_id":"168","rating":3},{"type":"default_type","timestamp":1490182264,"user_id":"713","item_id":"448","rating":2},{"type":"default_type","timestamp":1490182264,"user_id":"230","item_id":"969","rating":4},{"type":"default_type","timestamp":1490182382,"user_id":"276","item_id":"234","rating":5},{"type":"default_type","timestamp":1490185267,"user_id":"154","item_id":"754","rating":5},{"type":"default_type","timestamp":1490186234,"user_id":"328","item_id":"918","rating":4},{"type":"default_type","timestamp":1490182623,"user_id":"128","item_id":"588","rating":5},{"type":"default_type","timestamp":1490182128,"user_id":"950","item_id":"101","rating":4},{"type":"default_type","timestamp":1490182551,"user_id":"324","item_id":"298","rating":5},{"type":"default_type","timestamp":1490182512,"user_id":"232","item_id":"315","rating":5}],"count":10,"total_count":10}

You can include any of type, user_id, item_id, and older_than query parameters and SuggestGrid would return the actions satisfying all the query parameters: older_than value could be a ISO 8601 duration, or a Unix time number.

$ curl -XGET $SUGGESTGRID_URL/v1/actions?user_id=325&item_id=168

# Status code: 200
{"actions":[{"type":"default_type","timestamp":1490128243,"user_id":"325","item_id":"168","rating":3}],"count":1,"total_count":1}

You can also include from and size query parameters to nativage throught the reponse actions. From defaults to 0 and size defaults to 10. Returned actions are sorted from the most recent one to the least recent ones.

URI/Query Parameters
Name Type Required Description
from integer The number of users to be skipped from the response. Defaults to 0. Must be bigger than or equal to 0. This parameter must be string represetation of an integer like "1".
item_id string Get actions of an item id.
older_than string Get actions older than the given duration, or the given time number. Could be a ISO 8601 duration, or a Unix time number. Specifications are available at https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/ISO_8601#Durations, or https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Unix_time.
size integer The number of the users response. Defaults to 10. Must be between 1 and 10,000 inclusive. This parameter must be string represetation of an integer like "1".
type string Get actions of a type.
user_id string Get actions of a user id.

DELETE /v1/actions ( type | user_id | item_id | older_than )

Warning: Please use get actions with the exact parameters first to inspect the actions to be deleted.

  • Type must be provided.
  • If user id is provided, all actions of the user will be deleted.
  • If item id is provided, all actions on the item will be deleted.
  • If older than is provided, all actions older than the timestamp or the duration will be deleted.
  • If a number of these parameters are provided, the intersection of these parameters will be deleted.
  • In addition to a type, at least one of these parameters must be provided. In order to delete all the actions of a type, delete the type.

Type and at least one more parameter must be provided for all delete actions queries.

Delete a user's actions:

DELETE /v1/actions?type={type}&user_id={user_id}

$ curl -XDELETE $SUGGESTGRID_URL/v1/actions?type=ratings&user_id=1

# Status code: 200
{"message":"Delete actions query accepted."}

Delete an item's actions:

DELETE /v1/actions?type={type}&item_id={item_id}

$ curl -XDELETE $SUGGESTGRID_URL/v1/actions?type=ratings&item_id=10

# Status code: 200
{"message":"Delete actions query accepted."}

Delete old actions:

older_than value could be a ISO 8601 duration in the form of PnDTnHnM, or a Unix time number.

Example durations:

  • P365D: Approximately a year.
  • P30D: Approximately a month.
  • P1DT12H: One and a half days.
  • P1D: A day (where a day is 24 hours or 86400 seconds).
  • PT12H: 10 hours (where an hour is 3600 seconds).
  • PT1M: 1 minute.

Delete actions older than a month:

$ curl -XDELETE $SUGGESTGRID_URL/v1/actions?type=ratings&older_than=P30D

# Status code: 200
{"message":"Delete actions query accepted."}

Delete actions by query:

DELETE /v1/actions?type={type}&(user_id={user_id}&item_id={item_id}&older_than={timestamp_or_duration}

You can include any of user_id, item_id, and older_than parameters to the delete query and SuggestGrid would delete the intersection of the given queries accordingly.

For example, if all of user_id, item_id, and older_than are provided, SuggestGrid would delete the actions of the given user on the given item older than the given time or duration.

$ curl -XDELETE $SUGGESTGRID_URL/v1/actions?type=ratings&user_id=1&item_id=30&older_than=891628467

# Status code: 200
{"message":"Delete actions query accepted."}

It's highly recommended to first get the actions with the same parameters before deleting actions.

URI/Query Parameters
Name Type Required Description
item_id string Delete actions of an item id.
older_than string Delete actions older than the given duration, or the given time number. Could be a ISO 8601 duration, or a Unix time number. Specifications are available at https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/ISO_8601#Durations, or https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Unix_time.
type string true Delete actions of a type. This parameter and at least one other parameter is required.
