ImageSets Microservice

This is a system imagesets microservice from Pip.Services library. It allows system administrators and product owners to communicate to users key system events and product updates. Each imageset:

  • Can be written in multiple languages
  • Can include pictures and document attachments
  • Supports editing lifecycle via status tracking

The microservice currently supports the following deployment options:

  • Deployment platforms: Standalone Process, Seneca
  • External APIs: HTTP/REST, Seneca, AWS Lambda
  • Persistence: In-Memory, Flat Files, MongoDB

This microservice has dependencies on the following microservices:

Logical contract of the microservice is presented below. For physical implementation (HTTP/REST, Thrift, Seneca, Lambda, etc.), please, refer to documentation of the specific protocol.

class ImageSetV1 implements IStringIdentifiable {
    /* Identification */
    public id: string;
    /* Automatically set fields */
    public create_time: Date;
    /* Content */
    public title: string;
    public pic_ids?: string[];
    /* Search */
    public tags?: string[];
    public all_tags?: string[];
interface IImageSetsV1 {
    getImageSets(correlationId: string, filter: FilterParams, paging: PagingParams,
        callback: (err: any, page: DataPage<ImageSetV1>) => void): void;
    getImageSetById(correlationId: string, imagesetId: string,
        callback: (err: any, imageset: ImageSetV1) => void): void;
    createImageSet(correlationId: string, imageset: ImageSetV1,
        callback: (err: any, imageset: ImageSetV1) => void): void;
    updateImageSet(correlationId: string, imageset: ImageSetV1,
        callback: (err: any, imageset: ImageSetV1) => void): void;
    deleteImageSetById(correlationId: string, imagesetId: string,
        callback: (err: any, imageset: ImageSetV1) => void): void;


Right now the only way to get the microservice is to check it out directly from github repository

git clone git@github.com:pip-services-content/pip-services-imagesets-node.git

Pip.Service team is working to implement packaging and make stable releases available for your as zip downloadable archieves.


Add config.yaml file to the root of the microservice folder and set configuration parameters. As the starting point you can use example configuration from config.example.yaml file.

Example of microservice configuration

descriptor: "pip-services-commons:logger:console:default:1.0"
  level: "trace"
descriptor: "pip-services-imagesets:persistence:file:default:1.0"
  path: "./data/imagesets.json"
descriptor: "pip-services-imagesets:controller:default:default:1.0"
descriptor: "pip-services-attachments:client:http:default:1.0"
    protocol: "http"
    host: ""
    port: 8082
descriptor: "pip-services-imagesets:service:http:default:1.0"
    protocol: "http"
    host: ""
    port: 8080

For more information on the microservice configuration see Configuration Guide.

Start the microservice using the command:

node run


The easiest way to work with the microservice is to use client SDK. The complete list of available client SDKs for different languages is listed in the Quick Links

If you use Node.js then you should add dependency to the client SDK into package.json file of your project

    "dependencies": {
        "pip-clients-imagesets-node": "^1.0.*",

Inside your code get the reference to the client SDK

var sdk = new require('pip-clients-imagesets-node');

Define client configuration parameters that match configuration of the microservice external API

// Client configuration
var config = {
    connection: {
        protocol: 'http',
        host: 'localhost', 
        port: 8080

Instantiate the client and open connection to the microservice

// Create the client instance
var client = sdk.ImageSetsHttpClientV1(config);
// Connect to the microservice
client.open(null, function(err) {
    if (err) {
        console.error('Connection to the microservice failed');
    // Work with the microservice

Now the client is ready to perform operations

// Create a new imageset
        title: 'Cars',
        tags: ['car', 'cars', 'cartoon'],
        pic_ids: ['111', '222', '333']
    function (err, imageset) {
// Search for car images
        tags: 'cars'
    function(err, page) {
