Secure your webhooks

While we are still working on a few major UX / UI enhancements of the elastic.io dashboard, we actually have some news on the non-UI side of our platform we’d like to share.

Docker and NodeJS as PID 1 on Kubernetes, Mesosphere and Co

At elastic.io, we are using the ideology “one process per Docker container”. Surely, we apply this ideology for running integration components as well. So, each of our integration components is actually one process inside of one Docker container, and each of these Docker containers is running on Mesosphere and Kubernetes. Recently, though we had been having some unexplainable issues with …

Data integration solutions and iPaaS

An overwhelming number of applications use REST API to ensure communication with other applications and services. In fact, we have a REST API of our own and most of our connectors are built on top of certain REST APIs, such as MailChimp, SugarCRM, Salesforce, Magento, and so on. Typically, REST APIs are very fine-granular creatures composed of multiple GET-POST-PUT operations. …

Integration Components Special in September

Our usual Feature Alerts are almost exclusively about new or improved features and functionalities of the elastic.io platform.

Last time we gave you a glimpse at JSONata – a new expression and transformation language that makes it possible even for non-coders to create rather complex workflow scenarios, when a certain message needs to be routed to only a specific system based on its content. But we were not going to stop there. The benefits and capabilities of this …

Imagine the following scenario: You are running an online shop and one of the things you’d want to ensure is that you don’t run out of certain well-desired products when least expected. Sure, you can always check the product availability manually, but wouldn’t it be easier if you just get an alert when the stock drops below a certain number? …
