WSO2 Enterprise Integrator integration for Grafana Cloud

WSO2 Enterprise Integrator 7.1.0 is a powerful configuration-driven approach to integration, which allows developers to build integration solutions graphically.

This is a hybrid platform that enables API-centric integration and supports various integration architecture styles: microservices architecture, cloud-native architecture, or a centralized ESB architecture. This integration platform offers a graphical/configuration-driven approach to developing integrations for any of the architectural styles.

This integration includes 5 pre-built dashboards to help monitor and visualize WSO2 Enterprise Integrator metrics.

Before you begin

In order for this integration to work, you have to enable the Prometheus endpoint on your WSO2 Enterprise Integrator nodes. Please refer to the official documentation.

Install WSO2 Enterprise Integrator integration for Grafana Cloud

  1. In your Grafana Cloud stack, click Connections in the left-hand menu.
  2. Find WSO2 Enterprise Integrator and click its tile to open the integration.
  3. Review the prerequisites in the Configuration Details tab and set up Grafana Agent to send WSO2 Enterprise Integrator metrics to your Grafana Cloud instance.
  4. Click Install to add this integration’s pre-built dashboards to your Grafana Cloud instance, and you can start monitoring your WSO2 Enterprise Integrator setup.

Post-install configuration for the WSO2 Enterprise Integrator integration

After enabling the metrics generation, instruct Grafana Agent to scrape your WSO2 nodes.

WSO2 exposes a /metrics endpoint. To scrape it, add the provided snippet to your agent configuration file.

Make sure to change targets in the snippet according to your environment.

Configuration snippets for Grafana Agent

Below metrics.configs.scrape_configs, insert the following lines and change the URLs according to your environment:

yaml
    - job_name: integrations/wso2-enterprise-integrator
      metrics_path: '/metric-service/metrics'
      relabel_configs:
        - replacement: '<your-instance-name>'
          target_label: instance
        - replacement: '<your-cluster-name>'
          target_label: wso2_cluster
      static_configs:
        - targets: ['wso2-ei-node:9201']

Changelog

md
# 0.0.6 - September 2023

* New Filter Metrics option for configuring the Grafana Agent, which saves on metrics cost by dropping any metric not used by this integration. Beware that anything custom built using metrics that are not on the snippet will stop working.
* New hostname relabel option, which applies the instance name you write on the text box to the Grafana Agent configuration snippets, making it easier and less error prone to configure this mandatory label.

# 0.0.5 - February 2023

* Bugfix - remove unused link

# 0.0.4 - January 2023

* Add job variable filter to all dashboards.

# 0.0.3 - September 2022

* Update dashboard panels descriptions.

# 0.0.2 - October 2021

* Update mixin to latest version:
  - Update queries to use $__rate_interval

# 0.0.1 - September 2021

* Initial release
