Creating a simple Incoming configuration

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

As the name Incoming indicates, the configuration will fetch and/or read from the required external source.

An incoming configuration determines how data is retrieved. In this example, a configuration for data from http://httpbin.org/json will be created.

An incoming configuration can be created by going to Connections > Incoming.

An incoming configuration has an identifier and a name. We use:

  • Identifier: slideshows-from-httpbin
  • Name: Slideshows from httpbin

incoming-configuration

The configuration also uses a subscriber. A subscriber is an object which receives or retrieves data from a system. Because we want to retrieve data from HTTP we will choose the "HTTP Subscriber" prototype and configure it as follows:

Other fields such as to request parameters, HTTP client, and input transformer can be left empty.

http-subscriber-configuration

After the incoming configuration has been stored it can be executed from the command line and dashboard.

 run-incoming-configuration
This executes the incoming configuration but no tasks are created. In order to create tasks, an outgoing configuration and a route have to be configured as well.
