User case

In a vCloud Director instance where 2 API extensions are used (example1, example2):

vcdextproxy subscribe to following AMQP queues:

  • example1

  • example2

When a message is sent to example1 queue:

  1. A URI path check is made: is /api/example1 a correct API path for extension named example1 ?

  2. If valid, all fields of the request are converted to REST request (as headers or as body content)

  3. REST endpoint handle the request as a standard REST one (with a lot of vCloud information…)

  4. REST endpoint replies to vcdextproxy

  5. vcdextproxy reformat the reply as an AMQP reply message
