Setting up HTTP Client Cloudflare

Steps

  • In Alumio Dashboard, go to Clients > HTTPS Client. Create a new HTTP Client and select Cloudflare HTTP Client as the prototype of the HTTP Client.
  • Fill in the Base URI, and Choose the Authentication Type.
    • Bearer Token : Fill in the Token
    • Api key (api_email) : Fill in the X-Auth-Email
    • Api key (api_key) : Fill in the X-Auth-Key
    • Api key (user_service_key) : Fill in the X-Auth-User-Service-Key
  • Save the Client for use later.

Subscribing to Entities from Cloudflare

Steps

  • Go to Connections → Incoming and create a new incoming configuration and select Cloudflare Subscriber as the subscriber.
  • Select the entity you want to subscribe from Cloudflare.
  • Add any request parameters needed to subscribe to the entity (optional).
  • You can optionally add a transformer to transform the request parameters into something you need.
  • Select the Cloudflare HTTP Client to use.

General Concept

We follow Cloudflare documentation on building this connector so you can easily use the connector based on Cloudflare API Reference.

Method
Currently, we support Post (HTTP POST method), and Get (HTTP GET method).

Entity
It’s the entity you want to subscribe from Cloudflare. Please refer to the entities in Management APIs from Cloudflare API Reference page.

Request Parameters
These are the parameters you can provide to get the needed entity based on Cloudflare API Reference. Please look at the example below on how to fill the Request Parameters field when subscribing Get Account Details entity.

That’s why we need to define the account_id property inside the path property in the Request Parameters field. The properties inside query parameters will be parsed as query parameters. Here is the final URL that will be called when using such Request Parameters field on Get Account Details.

/client/v4/accounts/Alumio

Input Transformer
Any transformer’s set here will be executed after the Request Parameters are loaded. So, you basically can add any transformer to provide and transform the request parameters into anything you need either as path parameters and/or as query parameters of an entity.

HTTP Client

It’s the HTTP Client configuration or prototype you will use to access Cloudflare.

Publishing Entity to Cloudflare

Steps

  • Go to Connections → Outgoing, create a new outgoing configuration, and select Cloudflare Publisher as the publisher.
  • Select the action that you want the publisher to do with the data.
  • Select the Cloudflare entity you want the data to be published.
  • You can optionally add any query parameters to the request.
  • You can also optionally add any transformers to transform the data into anything you need before submitting it to Cloudflare.
  • Select the HTTP Client to use.

General Concept

Like the subscriber, the publisher has similar methods on how to use it. The difference is the payload that will be submitted by the publisher originating from the data (from routes, from transformers in outgoing configuration), though you can also add or modify payload using the Request Transformer.

Method
Currently, we support Post (HTTP POST method), Put (HTTP PUT method), Patch (HTTP PATCH method), and Delete (HTTP DELETE method).

Entity
We support publishing to most Cloudflare endpoints. Please refer to the entities in Management APIs from the Cloudflare API Reference page. Based on the documentation, some endpoints may need one or more path parameters.

For endpoints that require an object as the request payload, please look at the example below. For example, we want to Purge Cached Conent of Zone. Please select “Post” as the action and “Zone – Purge All Files” as the entity of the publisher.

You can put the payload you want to send to Cloudflare into the payload property in the data.

Alumio will send an API request to Cloudflare with URL /client/v4/zones/Alumio/purge_cache

HTTP Client

It’s the HTTP Client configuration or prototype you will use to access Cloudflare.
