List all apps available to you


This call lists all the apps available to you.


Public/private apps

Note that you can see all of the publicly available apps on the CGC by setting the query parameter visibility to public. If you omit this parameter, you will see all your private apps, i.e. those in projects that you can access.

Query parameters

NameData typeDescription
fieldsstringSelector specifying a subset of fields to include in the response.
projectstringEnter a project, in the form {project_owner}/{project_short_name} to restrict the results to apps from that project only.
project_ownerstringEnter a CGC username to restrict the results to apps from that user's projects only. Note that you can only see apps within projects that you are a member of.
visibilitystringSet this to public to see all public apps on the CGC.
qstringEnter one or more search terms to query apps using the q parameter. Learn more about querying below.
idstringUse this parameter to query apps based on their ID.

Query apps

Use one or more search terms via the q parameter to query all apps that are available to you. An "and" operator is implied when using multiple search terms separated by a space. Further refine your query by specifying either the project containing the app or the project's owner.
Search terms should relate to the following app details:

  • name
  • label
  • toolkit
  • toolkit version
  • category
  • tagline
  • description

For the query to return results, each term must match at least one of the fields that describe an app. For example, the first term can match the app's name while the second can match the app description. However, if any part of the search fails to match app details, the query is returned as null.

Example requests for querying apps

Query apps by any of the search terms

Use search terms to query apps by including them after the app parameter, as shown below.

GET /v2/apps?q=WGS SBG RNA

Query apps in a specific project

Use search terms to query apps in a specific project by entering the terms and then specifying the project name, as shown below.

GET /v2/apps?q=WGS SBG&project=username/project-name

Query apps for a specific project owner
Use search terms to query apps belonging to a specific project owner by entering the terms and then specifying the name of the project owner, as shown below.
