Anypoint Platform Chrome Extension
Almost a year ago I started developing this Google Chrome extension and since the initial release I’ve tried to hear from the community what can of features would be helpful and allow administrators and engineers to save time while they are in the platform. Along with that I always have the feeling of give my knowledge to the community and part of it is try to help all of you also with some tool like this one.
This started really basic with some features, but I know, always there are room for improvements and have new features, so I’m open to hear any feedback and suggestion as always.
In this post, I’ll show you some of the features that you can find in the extension.
Check how many days left you have on your trial application
We tend to open a lot of trial accounts from Anypoint platform, and if we are doing a demo or a presentation we don’t know how many days left we have, so here we have a counter.
Get the Bearer token to make HTTP Rest request agains the Anypoint Platform API.
How many times you wan to retrieve some data from the Anypoint Platform REST API? and along with that to get the access token to use it to authenticate your calls will make you to have couple more calls. Here you can clic on the value and use it in your Authorization header when doing http requests.
Access to your Organization Id and Environment Id in one click.
So now you don’t have to go into Access Management and figure what Org Id or environment you are, the extension will give you the values right away.
If you are curios about the latest status of the platform, here I’m showing the latest from the status page. I know there’s some room from improvement here, we should be able to have some push notifications when something is not right and maybe some more links to the status page, maybe also the maintenance windows?
Access to the Mulesoft community page and Dataweave playground
I feel is helpful to have one click place to access this links.
Download artifact and show status
When you select an application and clic on the extension, automatically it changes and shows the name of the application, the current status and a “Download” button. The Download button allows to either download the .jar file for mule 4 projects or .zip for mule 3 versions.
See Alerts and schedule jobs
If you are wondering if your application has schedulers and you want to see the cron or time it will be executed you can see that in the Schedulers tab, and for Alerts you should be able to see which ones are set, when you clic on them you should be good to be redirected to the alert edit page.
If you are interested in install the extension you can do it from the official Chrome Extension page.
As I mentioned , this is just he beginning and I know there are more features we should include, I feel the community can ask anything that should be consider and I will include it as part of a roadmap.
