Plugins

Plugins architecture offers 3rd party developpers the possibility to develop connectors to their specific system, called from various hooks in SecuTix.

Concept

The 3rd party developer must implement an API transmitted by SecuTix, following SecuTix rules of plugin implementation.

Then the plugin can be submitted to SecuTix for approval and deployed in an planned SecuTix release.

Plugins can leverage different elements for SecuTix:

  • being configured directly through SecuTix setup screens (the plugin declares itself the list and types of parameters that need to be exposed in the screens)
  • use SecuTix operator logs to display actions and results to the operators
  • use SecuTix external connectors wrappers (REST, Soaop, SFTP...) to take profit of all communication security and robustness used by SecuTix deployment.
