In Juju, an endpoint is a struct defined in an application’s charm’s metadata.yaml / (since Charmcraft 2.5) charmcraft.yaml consisting of

  • a name (charm-specific),
  • a role (one of provides, requires = ‘can use’, or peers), and
  • an interface

whose purpose is to help define a relation (integration).

For example, the MySQL application deployed from the mysql charm has an endpoint called mysql with role provides and interface mysql and this can be used to form a non-subordinate relation with WordPress.

All charms have an implicit (not in their metadata.yaml / charmcraft.yaml) endpoint with name juju-info, role provides, and interface juju-info which can be used to form subordinate relations with subordinate charms that have an explicit endpoint with name juju-info, role requires, and interface juju-info (e.g., mysql-router).
