In addition to the basic user interface of Carte, there are also web services available that provide execution and status information.  These webservices are used by Kettle to orchestrate execution within a clustered environment, but may also be used by third-parties for integration and monitoring.

Carte Status Service

To retrieve status of your Carte node, you can request the following URL:


This returns an XML result, here is an example:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
      <transname>Row generator test</transname>

Transformation Status Service

The following webservice provides status of a specific transformation within Carte:

http://localhost:<PORT>/kettle/transStatus/?xml=y&name=<TRANSFORMATION NAME>&id=<TRANSFORMATION ID>

Note that the Name and ID can be retrieved from the Carte Status webservice above.

Example XML Result:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
  <transname>Row generator test</transname>

Job Status Service

The following webservice provides status of a specific job within Carte:

http://localhost:<PORT>/kettle/jobStatus/?xml=y&name=<JOB NAME>&id=<JOB ID>
