Bases: ABC

Access the JWST Engineering Database

This is the minimal API for the service definition. Concrete implementations may provide other parameters and attributes.

Parameters
  • base_url (str) – The base url for the engineering RESTful service

  • service_kwargs (dict) – Service-specific keyword arguments. Refer to the concrete implementations of EngdbABC.

Attributes Summary

base_url

The URL of the service in use

endtime

The endtime of the search

response

The requests.Response information

starttime

The start time of the search

Methods Summary

get_meta([mnemonic])

Get the mnemonics meta info

get_values(mnemonic, starttime, endtime[, ...])

Methods Documentation

abstract get_meta(mnemonic='', **service_kwargs)[source]

Get the mnemonics meta info

Parameters

mnemonic (str) – The engineering mnemonic to retrieve

Returns

  • meta (object) – The meta information. Type of return is dependent on the type of service

  • service_kwargs (dict) – Service-specific keyword arguments. Refer to the concrete implementations of EngdbABC.

abstract get_values(mnemonic, starttime, endtime, time_format=None, include_obstime=False, include_bracket_values=False, zip_results=True)[source]

Retrieve all results for a mnemonic in the requested time range.

Parameters
  • mnemonic (str) – The engineering mnemonic to retrieve

  • starttime (str or astropy.time.Time) – The, inclusive, start time to retrieve from.

  • endtime (str or astropy.time.Time) – The, inclusive, end time to retrieve from.

  • time_format (str) – The format of the input time used if the input times are strings. If None, a guess is made.

  • include_obstime (bool) – If True, the return values will include observation time as astropy.time.Time. See zip_results for further details.

  • include_bracket_values (bool) – The DB service, by default, returns the bracketing values outside of the requested time. If True, include these values.

  • zip_results (bool) – If True and include_obstime is True, the return values will be a list of 2-tuples. If false, the return will be a single 2-tuple, where each element is a list.

Returns

values – Returns the list of values. See include_obstime and zip_results for modifications.

Return type

[value, …] or [(obstime, value), …] or ([obstime,…], [value, …])

Raises

requests.exceptions.HTTPError – Either a bad URL or non-existant mnemonic.
