Customizing BlueCat Gateway usually means creating new GUI or REST API endpoints. In both cases you can get started through the Create workflow page (see Setting up a new Custom Workflow).

In general, you'll go through the following steps when building a new workflow.

Creating a workflow with a graphical user interface (GUI):

  • Create a skeleton for the workflow using the Create workflow page, selecting Workflow with UI as the workflow type.

    For more details, see Setting up a new Custom Workflow.

  • Edit the HTML template for the workflow.

  • Edit the CSS template if needed.

  • Edit the JavaScript source file if needed.

  • Write the Python code that implements the workflow handler.

Tip: GUI endpoints are also available through the API.

 

Creating a workflow with just a REST API:

  • Create a new skeleton using Create Workflow, selecting Workflow using only REST API as the workflow type.

    For more details, see Setting up a new Custom Workflow.

  • Write the Python code that implements the workflow handler.
