  • value - defined value which is filled in text field

The textfield value in popupselector element can be replaced by parameter from external url source. This parameter should be passed with popupCallbackEvent value. For example:

    type: update
    name: Return Action
    
    settings:
      fields:
        caption: Popupselector
        type: popupselector
        name: popupselector
        buttonText: Open
        value: '3'
        url: https://{external_source}/example
        popupWidth: 300
        popupHeight: 300
        popupCallbackEvent: click
        params:
          first: 1
          second: 2
    
    {
      "type": "update",
      "name": "Return Action",
      "settings": {
        "fields": {
          "caption": "Popupselector",
          "type": "popupselector",
          "name": "popupselector",
          "buttonText": "Open",
          "value": "3",
          "url": "https://{external_source}/example",
          "popupWidth": 300,
          "popupHeight": 300,
          "popupCallbackEvent": "click",
          "params": {
            "first": 1,
            "second": 2
          }
        }
      }
    }
    

In the example above, the external source should return a URL with such parameters as value and event. The event name is the same name as popupCallbackEvent in field description in manifest.

A full external resource link should be like in the example below:

http://{Jelastic_Platform_URL} + "fireevent?event=click&value=hello"

where:

  • Jelastic_Platform_URL - Jelastic Dashboard URL where manifest is executed
  • click - event name which is handled in manifest in popupCallbackEvent parameter
  • value - type is string. The textfield will be filled by it when button "Open" will be applied.

Dynamic filling of the manifest fields

Ability to dynamically determine UI in JPS manifest is accessible via onBeforeInit onBeforeInstall events.

Target Nodes

Target Nodes is an optional method that allows to define environments suitable for JPS installation. This method is available only for the update installation type.

Filtering for targetNodes can be performed by nodeType, nodeGroup, dockerOs, dockerName or dockerTag.

    type: update
    name: targetNodes
    
    targetNodes:
      nodeType:
      - "..."
      nodeGroup:
      - "..."
      dockerOs:
      - "..."
      dockerName:
      - "..."
      dockerTag:
      - "..."
    
    onInstall:
      createFile:
        nodeGroup: cp
        path: "/tmp/newFile"
    
    {
      "type": "update",
      "name": "targetNodes",
      "targetNodes": {
        "nodeType": [
          "..."
        ],
        "nodeGroup": [
          "..."
        ],
        "dockerOs": [
          "..."
        ],
        "dockerName": [
          "..."
        ],
        "dockerTag": [
          "..."
        ]
      },
      "onInstall": {
        "createFile": {
          "nodeGroup": "cp",
          "path": "/tmp/newFile"
        }
      }
    }
    
There are two possible ways to define targetNodes.

"nodeType": ["..."] - to set the required nodeTypes in an array

"nodeType": "..., ..." - to set the required nodeTypes being separated with commas

Example

Let’s suppose you have three environments with different topology.

target-nodes

Within these environments, the targetNodes filtering for JPS installation can be performed with the next example.

    type: update
    name: targetNodes
    
    targetNodes:
      nodeType: nginx, mysql5
    
    onInstall:
      createFile:
        nodeGroup: cp
        path: "/tmp/newFile"
    
    {
      "type": "update",
      "name": "targetNodes",
      "targetNodes": {
        "nodeType": "nginx, mysql5"
      },
      "onInstall": {
        "createFile": {
          "nodeGroup": "cp",
          "path": "/tmp/newFile"
        }
      }
    }
    
In this case, the filtering result will be the following.

TargetNodesFilter

Custom Menus

Menu is an expandable list within the Add-ons section, comprising operations that can be extended and adjusted by means of custom buttons.

new-menu

By default, this menu contains the Uninstall button. The rest of listed actions, if there are any, executes operations from the events settings.

The properties used for custom menus are the same as for custom buttons. However, the appropriate menu field (instead of buttons) should be specified to adjust functionality exactly within the menu list of the Add-ons plank.

Sample to set custom buttons within the menu list of the Add-ons plank.

    type: update
    name: Custom buttons
    
    targetNodes:
      nodeGroup: bl
    
    actions:
      - "..."
    
    menu:
      confirmText: Custom confirm text
      loadingText: Load text while waiting
      action: "{String}"
      caption: Configure
      successText: Configuration saved successfully!
      settings: config
      title: Title
      submitButtonText: Button Text
      logsPath: "/var/log/add-on-action.log"
      logsNodeGroup: cp
    
    {
      "type": "update",
      "name": "Custom buttons",
      "targetNodes": {
        "nodeGroup": "bl"
      },
      "actions": [
        "..."
      ],
      "menu": {
        "confirmText": "Custom confirm text",
        "loadingText": "Load text while waiting",
        "action": "{String}",

        "logsPath": "/var/log/add-on-action.log",
        "logsNodeGroup": "cp"
      }
    }
    
Refer to the Custom Buttons section below for a detailed description on the parameters set with the current sample.

Custom Buttons

Custom buttons settings are intended for extending and adjusting functionality of planks within the Add-ons section. It can be accessed upon clicking the same-named button next to the required node.

custom-addon

Such buttons execute operations that are predefined within a JPS manifest.

traffic-distributor

Note

The JPS manifest should include the targetNodes field in order to be displayed within the Add-ons section after installation, otherwise, it will be hidden.

Success Text Customization

It is possible to customize the success text that is displayed upon successful installation either at the Dashboard, or via email notification. A success text can be defined as plain text or Markdown syntax. More details about Markdown syntax in Cloud Scripting here

  • Setting relative to the baseUrl link that points path to the README.md file for its content to be displayed within the success response.

      type: update
      name: Success Text first example
      baseUrl: https://github.com/jelastic-jps/minio/blob/master/
      
      onInstall:
        log: success text first example
      
      success: README.md
      
      {
          "type" : "update",
          "name" : "Success Text first example",
          "baseUrl" : "https://github.com/jelastic-jps/minio",
          "onInstall" : {
              "log" : "success text first example"
          },
          "success" : "README.md"
      }
      

  • Customizing the success response text by means of an external link.

      type: update
      name: Success Text Second Example
      
      onInstall:
        log: success Text Second Example
      
      success: https://github.com/jelastic-jps/lets-encrypt/raw/master/README.md
      
      {
        "type": "update",
        "name": "Success Text Second Example",
        "onInstall": {
          "log": "success Text Second Example"
        },
        "success": "https://github.com/jelastic-jps/lets-encrypt/raw/master/README.md"
      }
      

As it was mentioned above, the success response is distinguished between two values:

  • text displayed at the dashboard after installation is successfully conducted

    type: update
    name: Success Text Second Example
    
    onInstall:
      log: success Text Second Example
    
    success:
      text: https://github.com/jelastic-jps/lets-encrypt/raw/master/README.md
    
    {
      "type": "update",
      "name": "Success Text Second Example",
      "onInstall": {
        "log": "success Text Second Example"
      },
      "success": {
        "text": "https://github.com/jelastic-jps/lets-encrypt/raw/master/README.md"
      }
    }
    
- message delivered via email notifying about the successful installation
    type: update
    name: Success Text Test 4
    baseUrl: https://github.com/jelastic-jps/lets-encrypt
    
    onInstall:
      log: success text test 4
    
    success:
      email: README.md
      text:
        en: README.md
        ru: https://github.com/jelastic-jps/lets-encrypt/blob/master/README.md
    
    {
      "type": "update",
      "name": "Success Text Test 4",
      "baseUrl": "https://github.com/jelastic-jps/lets-encrypt",
      "onInstall": {
        "log": "success text test 4"
      },
      "success": {
        "email": "README.md",
        "text": {
          "en": "README.md",
          "ru": "https://github.com/jelastic-jps/lets-encrypt/blob/master/README.md"
        }
      }
    }
    

Email notification also can be customized in custom responses. In this case email value from handle custom response has a higher priority. For example:

    type: update
    name: Success Text Customization
    
    onInstall:
      return:
        result: success
        email: Custom email response text
    
    success: success!!
    
    {
      "type": "update",
      "name": "Success Text Customization",
      "onInstall": {
        "return": {
          "result": "success",
          "email": "Custom email response text"
        }
      },
      "success": "success!!"
    }
    

In the last example above, the localization functionality is applied, which depends upon the Jelastic Platform selected language.

Custom responses can be returned within return or script actions. More details about custom responses here.

Markdown Description

Markdown is a light language with plain text formatting syntax. This language is supported by Cloud Scripting technology to describe a description, success texts or show custom response texts. Cloud Scripting uses CommonMark implementation to convert Markdown syntax into html code. Therefore, there is a main supported Markdown tag list:
