Docker / Maintenance / Health Check / Load Balancers

Health Check / Load Balancers In a production configuration of Cloud CMS, you will want to have a load balancer (LB) in front of both your API and UI clusters. You should have one load balancer for the API cluster and one load balancer for the UI cluster. Each load balancer is responsible for receiving requests from the outside world and efficiently distributing those requests to the N servers that make up each cluster. Load balancers use a number of strategies to try to determine which servers

Command Line

Command Line The Cloud CMS command-line client gives developers a way to work with their Cloud CMS tenant projects, applications, data stores and other resources from the command line. The CLI (command-line client) is a Node.js based command line tool that is very easy to use and available at no charge. Note: A valid Cloud CMS subscription is required to connect to Cloud CMS with the command-line client. This subscription can be a paid subscription or a free trial account. Getting Started To get

Cloud CMS Architecture

Cloud CMS has two clusters that we run for customers who host apps with us. One cluster is for the "app server" tier (*.cloudcms.net) and the other is the "API" tier (api.cloudcms.com). The app server cluster consists of Node.js servers, and the API is a Java-backend that is stateless and implements the full REST API: As such, the API doesn't manage connections directly. Any invocation to it is a one-shot where each request contains everything needed to assert the user's identity and proceed wit

API Max Heap recommendation

What is the recommended Xmx value for running the API service? The 2GB setting on the On-Premise "quickstart" distribution is a default for development usage. In production, we recommend putting as much memory as you can. Essentially, the API should use as much memory as is allocated to the API docker container. We usually ask customers to consider an M class large instance type (something on the order of 7.5GB of RAM per API). The UI can use considerably less. For the UI, a 2GB allocation is fi

AWS loadbalancer healthchecks

For AWS LB healthchecks, we recommend the following path off the API: /healthcheck This route hands back a 200 if the API server is healthy. It determines whether it is healthy by checking a few statistics such as the amount of free memory, the amount of free disk space, network connectivity, file handle usage, CPU utilization and more. If it returns a non-200, then that serves as a signal that the server is in some sort of degraded state and should be rolled over (which elastic scaling groups w

Application Server / Authentication / Adapters / Default

Default The default request adapter parses simple header and cookie information. It is generic adapter that can be used to interrogate the most common elements in an HTTP request. Configuration Here are all of the properties that may be configured: { "adapters": { "{adapterId}": { "type": "default", "config": { "header": "{headerName}", "cookie": "{cookieName}", "trusted": false } } } } Th

Application Server / Authentication / Adapters / JWT

JWT The JWT request adapter is similar to the default adapter in that it lets you pull a JWT token from either a named header or a cookie. JWT stands for JSON Web Token. JSON Web Tokens are an open, industry standard RFC 7519 method for representing claims securely between two parties. You can read more about them at [jwt.io](the official JWT web site). Configuration Here are all of the properties that may be configured: { "adapters": { "{adapterId}": { "type": "jwt",

Auditing

Auditing Cloud CMS provides a built-in audit system that automatically logs the activity between users and content through API service methods. The audit system produces an audit trail consisting of audit records that document the access of every user, content object and service method. Audit records are created automatically if they are enabled for your tenant and for the repository against which the operation occurs. Auditing is only available for on-premise, Docker customers.

Single Sign On (SSO)

Single Sign On (SSO) Cloud CMS offers Single Sign On (SSO) Enterprise support that provides ways for users to log in using their existing business accounts. It makes it possible for your users to authenticate to Cloud CMS without having to remember or type in their credentials every time. Cloud CMS offers two Enterprise SSO features - SAML 2.0 and JWT. These are two popular SSO mechanisms that work with many commercial and open-source identity providers including: Microsoft Active Directory Fede

Content Modeling / Behaviors

Behaviors Cloud CMS lets you wire in behaviors behind your content models so that rules automatically execute when your content is touched. Content editors work with simple forms to create content that conforms to your defined content models. When that content is created, updated or deleted, it automatically triggers policies (or events) which you use to bind in custom behaviors. In this way, the developers can wire up behaviors and the editorial team never needs to know about it. Furthermore, b

Application Server / Services / Cache

Cache The Cache Service is responsible for providing an application server cache that all processes, whether local or distributed, have access to for non-transactional caching. Objects stored in the cache are eventually available to other members of the cluster (if there are any), no matter whether running on the same server or on other servers in the cluster. Modes The Cloud CMS Application Server can run in one of three modes: single node cluster multiple nodes (on a single process) sticky-clu

Billing Provider Configuration Type billingProviderConfiguration Datastore Type application Supports authorities, permissions, transfer If this sounds familiar, it's because it's exactly what Cloud CMS uses to supports its own subscription plans for Cloud CMS customers. Just as we bill our customers for metered usage of the platform, you are free to pass those costs downstream to your own clients. And you can use the very same technical capabilities and facilities to do so. Cloud CMS offers bill

Docker / Maintenance / Repository Compression

Repository Compression Cloud CMS content is stored within a Repository. A Repository differs from other types of data stores in that it provides Copy-On-Write mechanics using Changeset-driven versioning. Every time you create, update or delete content within a repository, those adjustments are written onto a new Changeset. Changesets are layered automatically and provide a stack of differences that, over time, allow you to scroll back to any moment in time to see a perfect capture of every modif

Templates

Templates Cloud CMS supports the usage of templates at various points to generate presentation and output for things like emails, PDFs, web page components and more. Cloud CMS supports two template engines - Handlebars and Freemarker. In general, we recommend using Handlebars since the syntax is a bit easier. This document covers Handlebars and describes helper functions available in Handlebars that make processing simpler. Model Variables The following describes the internal structure of model

Authentication

Authentication Cloud CMS supports authentication via the industry standard OAuth 2.0 protocol. OAuth 2.0 is a well-recognized standard that enables client code to connect to Cloud CMS in a secure and safe fashion. This means that authorization can be achieved in such a way that client and user credentials (secret keys) are never publicly exposed. Channel-level encryption is provided by HTTPS and HTTP POST payloads are utilized to avoid exposure of credentials via request parameters or logging fa
