»Health HTTP Endpoint

The /health endpoints query health-related information. They are provided separately from the /catalog endpoints since users may prefer not to use the optional health checking mechanisms. Additionally, some of the query results from the health endpoints are filtered while the catalog endpoints provide the raw entries.

»List Checks for Node

This endpoint returns the checks specific to the node provided on the path.

MethodPathProduces
GET/health/node/:nodeapplication/json

The table below shows this endpoint's support for blocking queries, consistency modes, agent caching, and required ACLs.

Blocking QueriesConsistency ModesAgent CachingACL Required
YESallnonenode:read,service:read

»Parameters

  • node (string: <required>) - Specifies the name or ID of the node to query. This is specified as part of the URL

  • dc (string: "") - Specifies the datacenter to query. This will default to the datacenter of the agent being queried. This is specified as part of the URL as a query parameter.

  • filter (string: "") - Specifies the expression used to filter the queries results prior to returning the data.

  • ns (string: "")

    Enterprise
    - Specifies the namespace to list checks. This value may be provided by either the ns URL query parameter or in the X-Consul-Namespace header. If not provided at all, the namespace will be inherited from the request's ACL token or will default to the default namespace. To view checks for multiple namespaces the * wildcard namespace may be used. Added in Consul 1.7.0.

»List Nodes for Connect-capable Service

This endpoint returns the nodes providing a Connect-capable service in a given datacenter. This will include both proxies and native integrations.

GET/health/connect/:serviceapplication/json

Parameters and response format are the same as /health/service/:service.

»List Nodes for Ingress Gateways Associated to a Service

This endpoint returns the nodes providing a ingress gateway for a service in a given datacenter.

MethodPathProduces
GET/health/ingress/:serviceapplication/json

Parameters and response format are the same as /health/service/:service.
