DESCRIPTION

Metabase::Client::Simple provides is extremely simple, lightweight library for submitting facts to a Metabase web server.

METHODS

new

  my $client = Metabase::Client::Simple->new(\%arg)

This is the object constructor.

Valid arguments are:

  profile - a Metabase::User::Profile object
  secret  - a Metabase::User::Secret object
  uri     - the root URI for the metabase server

If you use a uri argument with the 'https' scheme, you must have LWP::Protocol::https installed.

submit_fact

  $client->submit_fact($fact);

This method will submit a Metabase::Fact object to the client's server. On success, it will return a true value. On failure, it will raise an exception.

guid_exists

  $client->guid_exists('2f8519c6-24cf-11df-90b1-0018f34ec37c');

This method will check whether the given GUID is found on the metabase server. The GUID must be in lower-case, string form. It will return true or false. Note that a server error will also result in a false value.

register

  $client->register;

This method will submit the user credentials to the metabase server. It will be called automatically by submit_fact if necessary. You generally won't need to use it. On success, it will return a true value. On failure, it will raise an exception.
