Subject [GitHub] incubator-brooklyn pull request: YAML config keys (parameters)
Date Thu, 05 Nov 2015 10:59:39 GMT
GitHub user neykov opened a pull request:

    YAML config keys (parameters)

    Adds parameters to specs and catalog items, which are then added as config keys to the
entity's dynamic type.
    What this allows is:
      * document the possible inputs for a catalog item
      * the UI can now ask the user for input when selecting a catalog item
      * setting the correct type for inputs (coercing), validating
      * add config keys to an entity by setting them in the spec
    Parameters can be set at any level in the CAMP plan, including in the catalog item meta
info. If not set the underlying type parameters are used (if a java class, then its config
keys are used, if a catalog item, then the item's parameters). The top level service parameters
become the catalog item's parameters.
    For referencing any passed parameters new scopes are introduced:
      * `$brooklyn:root()` returns the application entity (top-level one)
      * `$brooklyn:scopeRoot()` returns the top level entity of the current catalog item
      id: parameterExample
      version: 0.0.1
      - name: maxHits
        type: integer
        - required
      - config2
      - config3
        type: BasicApplication
        - type: entity1
          # can be set at deeper levels when typing is needed
          - name: entity1Config
            type: integer
            entity1Config: $brooklyn:scopeRoot().config("maxHits")
        - type: entity2
            entity2Config: $brooklyn:config("maxHits")  # using the inherited config
    Which results in the following catalog item:
    <img width="598" alt="catalog item view" src="">
    When using
     the Application Wizard to create an application from the above catalog item the UI asks
you to fill in the parameters:
    <img width="616" alt="screen shot 2015-11-05 at 12 51 35" src="">
    creating the following app plan:
    location: uLXQ8KFk
      - type: "parameterExample:0.0.1"
          maxHits: 55

    Catalog items configuration support
    Functionality to let catalog items document what configuration they accept as input. Useful
for YAML plans to let users know what configuration they support and for UIs to list available
inputs and validate them.

    Parameter aware specs
    Let specs be aware of the parameters the underlying brooklyn object is accepting. Catalog
items return the same spec parameters derived at addition time. The catalog item can override
the underlying entity parameters by including the list in its meta.
