[RFE] Allow for hooks within workflow
Last modified: 2014-03-12 18:53:29 EDT
Description of problem:
This is a request for a framework which allows hooks to be executed within all parts of workflows. This framework would allow for third party tools to be easily integrated with CloudForms.
Example Story: When the promote button is selected a hook is called (start_promote) which executes a script (created by customer, consultant, or third party software vendor). This script would insert a record into a third party tool (such as remedy or BMC). System Engine would not start the promotion, instead it would set the status to "waiting for response from $hook_name". Upon completion of workflow in third party tool the third party tool would call System Engine API and change the status from "waiting for response from $hook_name" to "approved". At this point, System Engine would start the promotion.
I am working on a prototype of integrating ruote workflow framework with katello for all its backround processing. I will prepare some demo soon.
It's pretty extensive and such changes could be implemented by changing processes there. They can be defined in Ruby DSL or XML files. Taking.
Bug is irrelevant because Foreman supports foreman_hooks plugin.
Closing old bugs which are not relevant based on new UI and CLI
