Initialize SDK

Set up an API client user agent:

use Arvados;
my $arv = Arvados->new('apiVersion' => 'v1');

The SDK retrieves the list of API methods from the server at run time. Therefore, the set of available methods is determined by the server version rather than the SDK version.


Create an object:

my $test_link = $arv->{'links'}->{'create'}->execute('link' => { 'link_class' => 'test', 'name' => 'test' });


my $some_user = $arv->{'collections'}->{'get'}->execute('uuid' => $collection_uuid);


Retrieve an object by ID:

my $some_user = $arv->{'users'}->{'get'}->execute('uuid' => $current_user_uuid);

Get the UUID of an object that was retrieved using the SDK:

my $current_user_uuid = $current_user->{'uuid'}


Get a list of objects:

my $repos = $arv->{'repositories'}->{'list'}->execute;
print ("UUID of first repo returned is ", $repos->{'items'}->[0], "\n");


Update an object:

my $test_link = $arv->{'links'}->{'update'}->execute(
        'uuid' => $test_link->{'uuid'},
        'link' => { 'properties' => { 'foo' => 'bar' } });

Get current user

Get the User object for the current user:

my $current_user = $arv->{'users'}->{'current'}->execute;
