Insight

Provides a dashboard that collates information from multiple deployed web application nodes into a single view. Insight relies on web applications exposing their configuration properties as a resource, which provides status information as JSON.

Example

A request to http://mywebapp:8080/internal/status.json

could respond with a collection of properties:

{ "application-version" : "1.0.3", "git-commit" : "c7b43bdb9b92a763c8b8", "username" : "user", "last-deployed": "16th Feb, 10:45am" }

Configuration

Insight is configured as follows:

{
    "environments": {
        "Staging": {
            "urls":["http://localhost:8081/status.json", "http://localhost:8081/status.json"]
        },
        "Showcase": {
            "urls":["http://localhost:8081/status.json", "http://localhost:8081/status.json"]
        },
        "Prod": {
            "urls":["http://localhost:8081/status.json", "http://localhost:8081/status.json"]
        }
    }
}
