axway-flow-sdk

SDK for implementing custom flow nodes for API Builder flows

Features

  • CLI tool for starting a new flow-node plugin
  • SDK for building custom flow-node plugins for API Builder flows

Install

npm install -g axway-flow-sdk

Generating a new flow-node plugin

Generates a new flow-node plugin named "mynode" in the current directory.

axway-flow -n mynode
cd api-builder-plugin-fn-mynode
npm install --no-optional
npm run build (optional)

encodeURI example

const sdk = require('axway-flow-sdk');

function getFlowNodes() {
	const flownodes = sdk.init(module)
		.add('encodeURI', {
			name: 'Encode URI',
			icon: 'encode.svg',
			description: 'URI encoder'
		})
		.method('encode', {
			name: 'Encode URI',
			description: 'Encodes a URI by replacing each instance of certain characters with UTF-8 encodings.'
		})
		.parameter('uri', {
			type: 'string',
			description: 'The URI to encode.'
		})
		.output('encoded', {
			name: 'Encoded',
			description: 'The encoded URI.',
			context: '$.encodedURI',
			schema: {
				type: 'string'
			}
		})
		.action((req, cb) => {
			cb.encoded(null, encodeURI(req.params.uri));
		});
	return Promise.resolve(flownodes);
}

exports = module.exports = getFlowNodes;

Notice that this encodeURI example is returning a function, getFlowNodes, that returns a promise. This allows for the generation of the flow-node to be asynchronous, for example, to allow the loading of content from a remote source. In this example it is used for demostration purposes only, flownodes could have been returned from getFlowNodes instead.

Type references

In Axway API Builder, it is possible to reference other types. For example, types can be loaded from ./schemas, registered from Models, or registered from service connectors. Any registered schema can be referenced whenever a schema is required.

.parameter('greeting', {
	"$ref": "schema://model/appc.arrowdb/user"
})
.output('next', {
	schema: {
		"$ref": "schema://model/appc.arrowdb/user"
	}
})

Testing your flow-node module

The cli will automatically generate a unit test in ./test/test.js. The test will use mocknode to mock an API Builder flow-node.

mocknode(flownodes) : function

Mocks an API Builder flow-node using the flow-node generated with NodeBuilder.

Access: public

ParamTypeDescription
flownodesNodeBuilderThe NodeBuilder object.

Testing a successful output callback: cb.next(null, 'stuff')

This example uses mocha and promises to check that the flow-node is defined well enough to pass the argument foo to the method method. It also mocks the callback using the flow-node's defined output, and ensures that the method invokes the correct callback.

Note if the flow-node is asynchronous, i.e. returns a promise, the promise must be resolved to get the flow-nodes defined in the plugin. This can simply be done using a before block that waits for the resolved promise.

const flownodesPromise = require('../src');
const { mocknode } = require('axway-flow-sdk');

let flownodes;
before(() => {
	return flownodesPromise.then((resolvedFlownodes) => {
		flownodes = resolvedFlownodes;
	});
});

it('describes a test', () => {
	const args = { foo: undefined };
	return mocknode(flownodes).node('example').invoke('method', args)
		.then((response) => {
			expect(response).to.deep.equal({
				next: [null, 'stuff']
			})
		});
})

Testing an error default callback: cb('invalid argument')

This example is similar to the previous example, save that the expectation is that the method will invoke cb('invalid argument') when given an undefined parameter.

const flownodes = require('../src');
const { mocknode } = require('axway-flow-sdk');

it('describes a test', () => {
	const args = { foo: undefined };
	return mocknode(flownodes).node('example').invoke('method', args)
		.then((response) => {
			expect(response).to.deep.equal(['invalid argument'])
		});
})

API Reference

axway-flow-sdk~NodeBuilder

Kind: inner class of axway-flow-sdk

new NodeBuilder(srcModule, options)

ParamTypeDefaultDescription
srcModuleobjecta node module
optionsobjectThe options for the builder.
options.validateobjecttrueThe enables parameter validation. Disable if you need to use refs.

nodeBuilder.add(key, options) ⇒ NodeBuilder

Adds a new flownode and prepares the NodeBuilder to accept the following flownode operations:

The key parameter is used to uniquely identify the flownode and represents a distinct instance of a node for the flow editor. The key will be used as the name unless the name option is provided. The new node will appear under the "general" category by default, or under the provided category option.

The icon option can be bmp, jpeg, png, gif, tiff, or svg file. After, .method can be used to add method(s), and .output can be used to define an output. When done, .action can be used to define an action function and finish the flownode.

Kind: instance method of NodeBuilder
Returns: NodeBuilder - The current object (this).
Access: public

ParamTypeDefaultDescription
keystringA unique key identifier for the node.
optionsobjectOptions for the node.
options.namestringA friendly name for the node as it will appear in the UI.
options.iconstringAn icon file.
options.descriptionstringA description for the node.
options.categorystring"general"A category under which the node will appear in the UI (defaults to "general").

Example

sdk.init(module).add('encodeURI', { icon: 'encode.svg' });

nodeBuilder.method(key, options) ⇒ NodeBuilder

Adds a new method to the current node flownode and prepares the NodeBuilder to accept the following method operations:

.add(key, [options]) must be called prior to adding a method.

The key uniquely identifies the method for the node and will be used as the name unless the name option is provided.

Kind: instance method of NodeBuilder
Returns: NodeBuilder - The current object (this).
Access: public

ParamTypeDescription
keystringA unique key identifier for the method.
optionsobjectOptions for the method.
options.namestringA friendly name for the method as it will appear in the UI.
options.descriptionstringA description for the method.

Example

sdk.init(module).add('encodeURI', { icon: 'encode.svg' })
	.method('encode', { name: 'Encode URI' });

Example (Disable validation)

sdk.init(module, { validation: false }).add('encodeURI', { icon: 'encode.svg' })
	.method('encode', { $ref: '#/definitions/foo' });

nodeBuilder.group(name) ⇒ NodeBuilder

Kind: instance method of NodeBuilder
Returns: NodeBuilder - The current object (this).
Access: public

ParamTypeDescription
namestringA unique name for the parameter group as it will appear in the UI.

Example

sdk.init(module).add('encodeURI', { icon: 'encode.svg' })
	.method('encode', { name: 'Encode URI' })
	.group('Advanced')
	.parameter('uri', { type: 'string' });

nodeBuilder.parameter(name, schema, options) ⇒ NodeBuilder

Adds a new parameter to the current method. Any number of parameters can be added to a method.

.method(key, [options]) must be called prior to adding a parameter.

The name uniquely identifies the the parameter, and the schema is a valid JSON Schema definition (both draft-04 and draft-06 are supported).

Kind: instance method of NodeBuilder
Returns: NodeBuilder - The current object (this).
Access: public

ParamTypeDescription
namestringA unique name for the parameter as it will appear in the UI.
schemaobjectA schema used to validate the parameter.
optionsobject | booleanAs an object, specifies additional options to configure the parameter. As a boolean, specifies that the parameter is required. Parameters are required by default.
options.requiredbooleanspecifies that the parameter is required. Parameters are required by default.
options.multilineWrapperobjectdescribes the before and after parts that surrounds user provided value in the UI.
options.multilineWrapper.beforestringread-only string that is placed before the user provided value in the UI.
options.multilineWrapper.afterstringread-only string that is placed after the user provided value in the UI.
options.initialTypestringThe type to display by default in the UI for this parameter. Allowed values are object, array, string, selector, null, boolean and number.

Example

sdk.init(module).add('encodeURI', { icon: 'encode.svg' })
	.method('encode', { name: 'Encode URI' })
	.parameter('uri', { type: 'string' });

nodeBuilder.output(key, options) ⇒ NodeBuilder

Adds a new output to the current method. Any number of outputs can be added to a method, but for usability-sake, you should limit this. The output represents one of the possible callback routes for your method. For example, if your method tested prime numbers, then one output might be prime, and the other not-prime.

.method(key, [options]) must be called prior to adding an output.

The key uniquely identifies the the output route. The schema is a valid JSON Schema definition (both draft-04 and draft-06 are supported). If schema is not provided, then the output type is effectively any type.

The context is a valid JSON Path and is used as the default by the flow editor. When the output is invoked, the configured context is where the output value will be written.

Kind: instance method of NodeBuilder
Returns: NodeBuilder - The current object (this).
Access: public

ParamTypeDescription
keystringA unique key for the output.
optionsobjectoutput options
options.namestringA friendly name for the output as it will appear in the UI.
options.descriptionstringThe output description.
options.contextstringThe default context string.
options.schemaobjectThe expected JSON schema for the output value.

Example

sdk.init(module).add('encodeURI', { icon: 'encode.svg' })
	.method('encode', { name: 'Encode URI' })
	.parameter('uri', { type: 'string' })
	.output('encoded', { context: '$.encodedURI', schema: { type: 'string' } });

nodeBuilder.action(handler) ⇒ NodeBuilder

Assigns an action handler to the current method. The method can only have one action handler. Assigning an action will terminate the current method definition.

Kind: instance method of NodeBuilder
Returns: NodeBuilder - The current object (this).
Access: public

ParamTypeDescription

Changes

3.4.2

  • #6116: Internal cleanup chore.

3.4.1

  • #6074: Internal CI chore

3.4.0

  • #5924: Added support for string parameters having a format of "mustache".

3.3.0

  • #5892: Added support for defining a type for parameters to display by default in the Flow editor. Previously parameters always started with selector. Now they will consider the type provided using initialType as an option:
.parameter('myToggle', {
	type: 'boolean'
}, {
	initialType: 'boolean'
})

3.2.0

  • #5891: Added alternative way to define parameter options. Instead of false as a third argument to .parameter(), an object can be provided as { required: false }.
  • #5891: Added support for defining wrapper text for multiline and javascript format parameters. This wrapper text will be displayed in the parameter editor but will not be part of the value when saved in the flow. This is useful for when context or comments are needed.

3.1.11

  • #5923: Fix issue where README.md was not published.
  • #5923: Fix issue where README.md was generated with hardcoded docs.
