Integrating DevOps tools with Ortelius for CI/CD, messaging and infrastructure.
Intro to Integrations
Ortelius has an open architecture with many out of the box integrations with other DevOps tools. You can incorporate the use of tools such as Ansible or Helm, add Slack or deploy to WebSphere or Salesforce with our built-in Actions or by creating Custom Actions using any scripting languages. In addition, you can use DMScript which has pre-built access to the Ortelius Objects. RESTful APIs are also available to interact with the Ortelius Objects for integration into external systems, or execute on a continuous delivery trigger.
Actions and Custom Actions for deploying and managing Infrastructure Components like Tomcat or WebSphere or performing deployments with Helm, Ansible or Cloud Foundry.
Data Sources for connecting to outside data such as Change Request systems like Jira, Git or Bugzilla.
APIs for creating continuous delivery plug-ins for continuous configuration management.
The integration work may already be done with our Built-in Actions. Some Built-in Actions are Functions or Procedures that can delete files in a DropZone, or run a PostGres script. Other Built-in Actions integrate with specific DevOps tools such as Ansible, Helm, Slack or GitHub.
Built-In Database Actions
Run SQL Script (Postgres)
Runs one or more SQL scripts against a Postgres Database.
Built-In Deploy Actions
Extracts items from the specified Repository and places them in the Dropzone.
Extracts items from the specified Repository and deploys then to the Endpoints within the targeted Environment. Use IF conditions to filter the Endpoint list to those matching the specified criteria.
Deploys the specified Component to the appropriate Endpoints within the targeted Environment.
Runs a script on the appropriate Endpoints within the targeted Environment. Use IF conditions to filter the Endpoint list to those matching the specified criteria.
Deploys the Component on the stack to the Endpoint on the stack.
Built-In Dropzone Actions
Add File to ZIP
Puts a Dropzone file into a ZIP/WAR/JAR/EAR file.
Amend File Content
Modifies a flat file in the Dropzone. Set ““Server Specific”” to make a copy specific for each Endpoint.
Removes a file from the Dropzone.
Extract File from ZIP
Extracts a named file from a ZIP/WAR/JAR/EAR file.
Iterate through Dropzone
Loops through each file in the Dropzone.
Remove File from ZIP
Deletes a file from a ZIP/WAR/JAR/EAR archive.
Renames a file in the Dropzone. Set ““Server Specific”” to make a copy specific to the current Endpoint.
Use a named Dropzone.
XML - Add Element
Adds a New XML element.
XML - Remove Element
Removes an XML element.
XML - Set Attribute
Sets an attribute name in an XML element.
XML - Set Text
Sets the text in an XML element.
Built-In Flow Logic Actions
Calculates the MD5 of a file.
Returns the contents of a directory into an array.
Terminates a deployment with error condition.
Add Two Values
Add two values and stores the result in a variable.
Add Value to Variable
Add a value to a variable.
Echoes a message.
General Condition Expression evaluation. Also use this to filter the list of servers based on those matching the specified criteria.
Increments a variable.
Execute blocks in parallel.
Execute a Specific Task.
Creates and sets a variable.
Pauses for n seconds.
Use a named stream.
Wait for Task
Wait for a Specific Ortelius Task to be Run.
Built-In Loop Actions
Loops through each Component that makes up the Application.
Loop Through Array Keys
Loops through each element of an array, setting a variable to each key.
Iterates through the current set of Endpoints.
Loops through each version between version on target Endpoint and version being deployed.
Built-In Tomcat Actions
Cleans work directory and starts Tomcat.
Shuts down Tomcat before deployment.
Built-In WebSphere Actions
Deploys an Application to Websphere.
Built-In Windows Actions
Extracts the contents of a zip file.
Returns a list of installed services into an array.
Starts a Windows Service on the appropriate Endpoints within the targeted Environment. Use IF conditions to filter the Endpoint list to those matching the specified criteria.
Stops a Windows Service on the appropriate Endpoints within the targeted Environment. Use IF conditions to filter the Endpoint list to those matching the specified criteria.
