Possibility of Listening to GCM Events in ELM

Buddhi De Silva (132) | asked Sep 22 '20, 12:03 a.m.

We are currently in the process of developing an application which interact with ELM's Global Configuration Management (GCM).

For our development purposes, we need to clarify whether there is any way of notifying to a 3rd party application when a new configuration (stream or baseline) is added into the GCM stream under a given GC component.
In a simplified manner, what we need to know is, is it possible to consume some listeners or configure webhooks in ELM GCM so that when we add new configuration into GCM stream, our application will get notified.

Target Version : ELM 7.0 Upwards

I can think of two ways in which you might implement this with current features. Either would take some exploration.
1. Your app could monitor the GCM TRS feed to learn about newly created configurations, then take action accordingly. This may have a few minute's time lag.
2. Your app could query the GCM app using its REST API to discover new configurations. This polling could be done every so often (for example, hourly).

We have no GCM-specific event/trigger/notification/hook mechanisms today, though this topic has come up before. You are welcome to open an enhancement request here on (in Jazz Foundation) or in the developerWords RFE Community (ELM common services):
