This section provides information on the high-level tasks involved in implementing and publishing IS authenticators and provisioning connectors in WSO2 Store.
Basic implementation requirements
- Research the APIs provided by the service for which you want to create an authenticator or provisioning connector.
Required template can be created using the maven archetype found with following and using the mentioned command.
https://github.com/wso2-extensions/archetypes/tree/master/is-authenticator-archetype to create an authenticator use following command.
mvn archetype:generate -DarchetypeGroupId=org.wso2.carbon.extension.archetype -DarchetypeArtifactId=org.wso2.carbon.extension.is.authenticator-archetype -DarchetypeVersion=2.0.1 -DgroupId=org.wso2.carbon.extension.identity.authenticator -DartifactId=org.wso2.carbon.extension.identity.authenticator.<connector_name> -Dversion=1.0.0 -DarchetypeRepository=http://maven.wso2.org/nexus/content/repositories/wso2-public/
https://github.com/wso2-extensions/archetypes/tree/master/is-provisioning-connector-archetype to create a provisioning connector use following command.
mvn archetype:generate -DarchetypeGroupId=org.wso2.carbon.extension.archetype -DarchetypeArtifactId=org.wso2.carbon.extension.is.provisioning-connector-archetype -DarchetypeVersion=2.0.1 -DgroupId=org.wso2.carbon.is -DartifactId=org.wso2.carbon.is.test -Dversion=1.0.0 -DarchetypeRepository=http://maven.wso2.org/nexus/content/repositories/wso2-public/
We strongly recommend the non-use of GPL or LGPL licensed libraries in the development of connectors. If there is a reason to use these licenses, the reason needs to be provided along with the connector submission. Hosting connectors that use GPL or LGPL licenses in WSO2 Store will be done at the sole discretion of WSO2 and provision of a reason for the use of GPL LGPL licensed libraries does not guarantee hosting such connector.
Images required for publishing
You need to have PNG images with the following dimensions so that those can be used in the connector store.
Publishing the connector
When the connector development is complete, create a JIRA under the IS Connectors project with the following information:
- Source code can be directly attached to the JIRA or do the development in your own git repo.
- Once we review the code we will create a repo under https://github.com/wso2-extensions, and ask you to send the pull request.
- If GPL or LGPL licensed connectors are used, specify reasons for the use of such libraries.
