The demonstration webservlet

Part of the distribution is a war file that is a servlet that has a webinterface and some APIs that allow you to try things out.

This servlet can be downloaded via

<dependency>
  <groupId>nl.basjes.parse.useragent</groupId>
  <artifactId>yauaa-webapp</artifactId>
  <version>7.8.0</version>
  <type>war</type>
</dependency>

NOTE that this is a DEMONSTRATION servlet!

It is simply the library in a servlet, no optimizations or smart memory settings have been done at all.

Docker

Starting with version 5.14.1 the webservlet is also published to the central docker registry.

So with docker installed and running on your (Linux) desktop you should be able to so something as simple as

docker pull nielsbasjes/yauaa:7.8.0
docker run -p8080:8080 nielsbasjes/yauaa:7.8.0

and then open

  • http://localhost:8080/

in your browser to get the output of the servlet.

Custom rules

The servlet supports loading your own custom rules, which can be useful to classify internal monitoring systems. It does this by looking in the folder that start with UserAgents for yaml files (i.e. file:UserAgents*/*.yaml ).

Based on the docker image this can be easily done with an additional layer where your entire Dockerfile looks like this

FROM nielsbasjes/yauaa:7.8.0
ADD InternalTraffic.yaml UserAgents/

When you build that docker image and run it the logging should contain something like this:

Loading 1 rule files using expression: file:UserAgents*/*.yaml
- Preparing InternalTraffic.yaml (9608 bytes)
- Loaded  1 files in   11 msec using expression: file:UserAgents*/*.yaml

Doing queries

REST

The webservlet has a set of REST endpoints that allow analyzing the UserAgent headers and there you can select in what kind of format you want the information returned.

Although very useful in many cases it does not support analyzing the User-Agent Client Hints.

GraphQL

Since 7.4.0 the webservlet now also has initial support for GraphQL which also supports analyzing the User-Agent Client Hints.

Because Yauaa allows the addition of more analysis rules it is to be expected that the list of fields that can be extracted is changed using configuration.

This poses 2 problems:

Base query

The base query for analyzing a User-Agent with everything on it looks like this:

query {
  analyze(requestHeaders: {
      userAgent              : "Mozilla\/5.0 (X11; Linux x86_64) AppleWebKit\/537.36 (KHTML, like Gecko) Chrome\/103.0.0.0 Safari\/537.36"
      secChUa                : "\".Not\/A)Brand\";v=\"99\", \"Google Chrome\";v=\"103\", \"Chromium\";v=\"103\""
      secChUaArch            : "\"x86\""
      secChUaBitness         : "\"64\""
      secChUaFullVersion     : "\"103.0.5060.134\""
      secChUaFullVersionList : "\".Not\/A)Brand\";v=\"99.0.0.0\", \"Google Chrome\";v=\"103.0.5060.134\", \"Chromium\";v=\"103.0.5060.134\""
      secChUaMobile          : "?0"
      secChUaModel           : "\"\""
      secChUaPlatform        : "\"Linux\""
      secChUaPlatformVersion : "\"5.13.0\""
      secChUaWoW64           : "?0"
  }) {
    deviceClass
    deviceName
    deviceBrand
    deviceCpu
    deviceCpuBits
    deviceFirmwareVersion
    deviceVersion
    operatingSystemClass
    operatingSystemName
    operatingSystemVersion
    operatingSystemVersionMajor
    operatingSystemNameVersion
    operatingSystemNameVersionMajor
    layoutEngineClass
    layoutEngineName
    layoutEngineVersion
    layoutEngineVersionMajor
    layoutEngineNameVersion
    layoutEngineNameVersionMajor
    agentClass
    agentName
    agentVersion
    agentVersionMajor
    agentNameVersion
    agentNameVersionMajor
    remarkablePattern
  }
}

which results in

{
  "data": {
    "analyze": {
      "deviceClass": "Desktop",
      "deviceName": "Linux Desktop",
      "deviceBrand": "Unknown",

      "agentNameVersionMajor": "Chrome 103",
      "remarkablePattern": "Unknown"
    }
  }
}

Accessing all (including custom) fields

To get to all the other fields you can simply ask for all of them:

{
    analyze(requestHeaders: {
        userAgent: "TestApplication/1.2.3 (node123.datacenter.example.nl; 1234; d71922715c2bfe29343644b14a4731bf5690e66e)"
    }) {
        allFields:fields{
            fieldName
            value
        }
    }

}

gives (summary, not entire list):

{
  "data": {
    "analyze": {
      "allFields": [
        { "fieldName": "AgentClass",            "value": "Special" },
        { "fieldName": "AgentInformationEmail", "value": "Unknown" },
        { "fieldName": "AgentInformationUrl",   "value": "node123.datacenter.example.nl" },
        { "fieldName": "AgentName",             "value": "TestApplication" },
        { "fieldName": "AgentNameVersion",      "value": "TestApplication 1.2.3" },
...
    }
  }
}

Accessing some (including custom) fields

{
    analyze(requestHeaders: {
        userAgent: "TestApplication/1.2.3 (node123.datacenter.example.nl; 1234; d71922715c2bfe29343644b14a4731bf5690e66e)"
    }) {
        someFields:fields(fieldNames: [
            "DeviceClass",
            "AgentName",
            "ApplicationName" ,
            "ApplicationVersion",
            "ApplicationInstance",
            "ApplicationGitCommit",
            "ServerName"]){
            fieldName
            value
        }
    }

}

gives

        { "fieldName": "ServerName",            "value": "node123.datacenter.example.nl" }
      ]
