As part of the series of product updates on AgilePoint NX v9.0 release, the next one I would like to share is part 2 of the Elasticsearch integration which involves new process activities in the process designer module.
If you haven’t so far, strongly recommend you’ll watch part one video, of this integration
With the release of AgilePoint NX v9, AgilePoint provide integration for Elasticsearch which has two independent main parts:
- An AgileConnector: A data pipeline that transforms and streams process/app data to Elasticsearch for indexing which has been covered on part 1 video of this integration.
- A set of Process Activities: This will allow drag-and-drop of activities onto your process and automation of querying and writing data to the Elasticsearch indexes.
AgilePoint NX process designer now provides the following new process activities. Let’s head over to the video to view these activities in action:
- Insert Document
- Query Documents
- Update Document
- Delete Documents
To have the integration in place, you’ll need:
- AgilePoint NX version 9
- Elasticsearch: Elasticsearch can run anywhere, locally or in the cloud, as long as you can connect to it from your AgilePoint server instance. We highly recommend using Elasticsearch version 8 and above, though as the integration uses the core capabilities of the Elasticsearch, hence earlier version should be working just fine.
Note: Please note that this video is recorded while this feature is in beta version. Some of the labels and icons might change by the time it goes GA but the general concept of configuring these activities would remain the same.
