The Settings dialog is configured by default to access the TIBCO Cloud Integration site. You can configure additional registries that you might need to access using this dialog.
API Registry Configurations
Configure a new API registry by clicking the New button. Enter the following information:
name - A unique name for the registry
type - Registry type. If the registry is in the cloud, you must select Cloud and enter its URL in URL text box. If the API resides on your local file system, select Local Folder and browse to the folder using the Browse button.
URL - If you selected Cloud as your registry type, you must enter the site's URL in this text box.
Authentication - When creating a new API registry, you will be prompted to enter your username and password for the registry that exists on the Cloud.
Configure how you want your API to appear in this view. The three types of presentations available are:
- Flat - Displays the APIs as a flat list with each API's version number displayed next to its name in parenthesis. If there are multiple versions of the same API, each version will be shown as a separate API, hence multiple APIs with the same name but different version numbers.
- Hierarchical - Displays every API as a hierarchy of API name lable with version number folder under it and the actual API under the version folder. If there are multiple versions for an API, each version will be listed in its own separate folder under the API name label.
- Latest Version - If one or more APIs in your registry has multiple versions, selecting this option will show only the latest version of the API and hide the older versions.
Group by API registry - Groups the APIs according to the registry from which they were discovered.
Show API Registry URL - Displays the URL of the APIs next to the registry name.
Check Supported Plugins - This button refreshes the supported list of plug-ins from TIBCO Cloud Integration. When you import an existing project that uses plug-ins, you can validate that the plug-ins used in the project are supported in TIBCO Cloud Integration by clicking this button. You will see a message saying that the supported plug-ins are synchronized. The read-only list of supported plug-ins shows up in the Supported Plugins tab of the Properties dialog that you can access from the right-click menu as shown below. You can verify that you have the latest list from the synchronization timestamp at the bottom of the Properties dialog. You can also access the Check Supported Plugins option by right-clicking in the API registry that you want to connect to and selecting it from the resulting context menu.
This list represents the plug-ins that are available to your projects in TIBCO Cloud Integration during runtime. In order to use a plug-in during design-time, you must have the plug-in installed locally on your machine. If your project uses a plug-in that is not supported in TIBCO Cloud Integration, you will see an error saying so when pushing the project to the cloud.
Properties - The Properties context menu item opens a dialog which provides information about the registry from which you selected Properties in its General tab. The Supported Plugins tab provides a read-only list of plug-ins that are supported in TIBCO Cloud Integration.
