Creating a simple Route configuration

The guide will illustrate how to create a simple Route on the Alumio dashboard

A Route in Alumio is defined to bind the incoming configuration (Subscriber) to the outgoing configuration (Publisher).

A route can be created by going to Connections > Routes.

A route has an identifier, a name, an incoming configuration, and an outgoing configuration. We use:

  • Identifier: slideshows-from-httpbin-to-httpbin
  • Name: Slideshows from httpbin to httpbin
  • Incoming configuration: Slideshows from httpbin

Outgoing configuration: Slideshows to httpbin

Executing a route, creating tasks

Now that a route has been configured we can execute it. By executing it tasks will be created. Routes can be executed from the command line and the dashboard.

To fully execute a route both the incoming and route configuration need to be executed. This can be done from the command line and dashboard.

If we now go to the tasks page of the dashboard we can see that a task has been created.

We can view the entity data of the task by clicking on it:

We can also view the HTTP request which has been made by going to the import messages.

Execute the route configuration from the dashboard by going to Connections > Routes. Open the detail page by clicking the route configuration Then click the "Run Slideshows to httpbin" button.
