Overview

An extension is a workflow integration mechanism for the Control Center (CC). It aims to facilitate integration with external systems at key pre-determined points in the Registration and Authentication lifecycle. 

Example: Once the user is successfully registered we might want to update the user record in an external system. In this situation we can write an extension which receives a registration callback and calls out to the external system

An extension is not an external process. It is a Java jar which runs in process with the CC and is managed via the CC UI. This eliminates the need to manage separate processes. 

Each extension is uniquely identified by a ExtensionId. The CC manages Extensions at a global level. Once an extension is deployed, it may be associated with one or more RPApplication via the CC web UI.

Workflow

Structure of an extension

An extension is a container for one or more extension points. Extension point is

  • where we specify the logic we want to execute
  • contains a series of callbacks which are invoked by the CC
  • contains configuration callback which is invoked by the CC

Upon execution, an extension method can

  • Execute desired logic or calls to external systems 
  • Return a response indicating success or failure
  • Throw an exception, which is considered an execution failure 

📘

Extension vs ExtensionPoint

  • Extension is the top level container
    • ExtensionPoint contains the business logic
    • Extension contains one or more ExtensionPoint(s)
