Hi Jive Dev's! I'm pretty excited to present the first in a series of developer tools to assist you in creating some great integrations for your Jive instances. The goal for these tools are to ensure that they save you development time, reduce the likelihood for errors, and simplify the creation of add-on's and apps.
The first of these tools is the Simple Stream Integration Builder. It simplifies the process of creating an add-on with one of the new features of Jive Cloud — Simple Stream Integrations — which allows you to have one-way external activity streams WITHOUT middleware. By subscribing to a third-party webhook, we can receive a one-way push FROM a third-party webhook TO Jive. In many circumstances, this take can an hour or two to package together. Now, with just a few lines of transform code and some assets, you can have a simple packaged Jive Add-on in less than 10 minutes.
Note: The Simple Stream Integration Builder only works with Jive Cloud (Jive 7 and 8 not supported).
Some key benefits of this tool:
What you need to do to subscribe to a stream on Jive and build an add-on:
That’s it! What could have taken hours now only takes minutes, so you can go ahead and start doing what’s important—watching funny cat videos or “researching” on Reddit. Stay tuned for more tools like this one to get you developing some great integrations and apps for Jive in less time!
