Repository Details

Portably control DNS clouds using java or bash

Denominator

Portable control of DNS clouds

Denominator is a portable Java library for manipulating DNS clouds. Denominator has pluggable back-ends, including AWS Route53, Neustar Ultra, DynECT, Rackspace Cloud DNS, OpenStack Designate, and a mock for testing. We also ship a command line version so it's easy for anyone to try it out. Denominator currently supports basic zone and record features, as well GEO (aka Directional) profiles. See Netflix Tech Blog for an introduction.

Build Status

Command line

For your convenience, the denominator cli is a single executable file. Under the hood, the cli uses airline to look and feel like dig or git.

Android

There's no official android client, yet. However, we do have an Android Example you can try out.

Binaries

If you are using OSX, Homebrew has a built-in installer for denominator.

Here's how to get denominator-cli 4.6.0 from bintray

  1. Download denominator
  2. Place it on your $PATH. (ex. ~/bin)
  3. Set it to be executable. (chmod 755 ~/bin/denominator)

Getting Started

Advanced usage, including ec2 hooks are covered in the readme. Here's a quick start for the impatient.

If you just want to fool around, you can use the mock provider.

# first column is the zone id, which isn't always its name!
$ denominator -p mock zone list
denominator.io.          denominator.io.                                          admin.denominator.io.                86400
$ denominator -p mock record -z denominator.io. list
denominator.io.                                    SOA   3600   ns1.denominator.io. admin.denominator.io. 1 3600 600 604800 60
denominator.io.                                    NS    86400  ns1.denominator.io.

Different providers connect to different urls and need different credentials. First step is to run ./denominator providers to see how many -c args you need and what values they should have:

$ denominator providers
provider   url                                                 duplicateZones credentialType credentialArgs
mock       mem:mock                                            false
clouddns   https://identity.api.rackspacecloud.com/v2.0/       true           apiKey         username apiKey
designate  http://localhost:5000/v2.0                          true           password       tenantId username password
dynect     https://api2.dynect.net/REST                        false          password       customer username password
route53    https://route53.amazonaws.com                       true           accessKey      accessKey secretKey
route53    https://route53.amazonaws.com                       true           session        accessKey secretKey sessionToken
ultradns   https://ultra-api.ultradns.com:8443/UltraDNS_WS/v01 false          password       username password

Now, you can list your zones or records.

$ denominator -p ultradns -c my_user -c my_password zone list
--snip--
netflix.com.
--snip--
$ denominator -p ultradns -c my_user -c my_password record --zone netflix.com. list
--snip--
email.netflix.com.                                 A     3600   192.0.2.1
--snip--

Code

Denominator exposes a portable model implemented by pluggable Providers such as route53, ultradns, dynect, clouddns, or mock. Under the covers, providers are Dagger modules. Except for the mock, all current providers bind to http requests via feign, which keeps the distribution light.

Binaries

The current version of denominator is 4.6.0

Denominator can be resolved as maven dependencies, or equivalent in lein, gradle, etc. Here are the coordinates, noting you only need to list the providers you use.

<dependencies>
  <dependency>
    <groupId>com.netflix.denominator</groupId>
    <artifactId>denominator-core</artifactId>
    <version>${denominator.version}</version>

    <version>${denominator.version}</version>

  <dependency>
    <groupId>com.netflix.denominator</groupId>
    <artifactId>denominator-ultradns</artifactId>
    <version>${denominator.version}</version>
  </dependency>
</dependencies>

Getting Started

Creating a connection to a provider requires that you have access to two things: the name of the provider, and as necessary, credentials for it.

import static denominator.CredentialsConfiguration.credentials;
...
DNSApiManager manager = Denominator.create("ultradns", credentials(username, password)); // manager is closeable, so please close it!

The credentials are variable length, as certain providers require more that 2 parts. The above returns an instance of DNSApiManager where apis such as ZoneApis are found. Here's how to list zones:

for (Zone zone : manager.api().zones()) {
  for (ResourceRecordSet<?> rrs : manager.api().recordSetsInZone(zone.id())) {
    processRRS(rrs);
  }
}

If you are running unit tests, or don't have a cloud account yet, you can use mock, and skip the credentials part.

DNSApiManager manager = Denominator.create("mock");

The Denominator model is based on the ResourceRecordSet concept. A ResourceRecordSet is simply a group of records who share the same name and type. For example all address (A) records for the name www.netflix.com. are aggregated into the same ResourceRecordSet. The values of each record in a set are type-specific. These data types are implemented as map-backed interfaces. This affords both the strong typing of java and extensibility and versatility of maps.

For example, the following are identical:

mxData.getPreference();
mxData.get("preference");

Resource record sets live in a Zone, which is roughly analogous to a domain. Zones can be created on-demand and deleted.

Use via Dagger

Some users may wish to use Denominator as a Dagger library. Here's one way to achieve that:

import static denominator.CredentialsConfiguration.credentials;
import static denominator.Dagger.provider;
...
// this shows how to facilitate runtime url updates
Provider fromDiscovery = new UltraDNSProvider() {
  public String url() {
    return discovery.urlFor("ultradns");
  }
};
// this shows how to facilitate runtime credential updates
Supplier<Credentials> fromEncryptedStore = new Supplier<Credentials>() {
  public Credentials get() {
    return encryptedStore.getCredentialsFor("ultradns");
  }
}
DNSApiManager manager = ObjectGraph.create(provider(fromDiscovery), new UltraDNSProvider.Module(), credentials(fromEncryptedStore))
                                   .get(DNSApiManager.java);

Third-Party Providers

Denominator also operates with third-party DNS providers such as DiscoveryDNS.

Providers are looked up by name using ServiceLoader. Given the provider is in the classpath, normal lookups should work.

// Given the discoverydns jar is in the classpath
DNSApiManager manager = Denominator.create("discoverydns");

Third-party support is also explained in the CLI readme.
