WSO2 Governance Registry Lifecycle transition inputs
WSO2 Governance Registry (WSO2 G-Reg) is a fully open source product for governing SOA deployments, which provides many extension points to ensure your business policies. With G-Reg 5.0.0 release, we have introduced revolutionary UIs for enterprise asset management and discovery.
The Lifecycle of an asset is one of the critical requirements of enterprise asset management and Lifecycle management is focused on various state changes in a given artifact through different phases. If you want to read more about this, please go through my article on "Governance Framework Extension Points."
So here I am going to talk about, one of the feature enhancements which we added for G-Reg 5.3.0. With G-Reg 5.3.0, we have introduced lifecycle transition input for G-Reg publisher. With lifecycle transition inputs, you will be able to parse custom inputs from a user who is doing lifecycle operation.
As an example, you have integrated wso2 governance registry with API Management product using lifecycle executor. So when lifecycle transition happens G-Reg executor will create an API in an external API management product. So instead of defining APIM username password in the lifecycle configuration, using lifecycle transition inputs, you can popup an UI to provide credentials. These inputs can be directly accessed via lifecycle executor class.
Use of Lifecycle Inputs:
<input name="url" label="URL" tooltip="URL of APIM server"/>
<input name="userName" label="User Name" tooltip="User Name"/>
<input name="availability" label="Availability" tooltip="Availability Type"/>
