How to Integrate OpenIG and Message Brokers

Introduction

Open Identity Platform implemented message broker integration in OpenIG starting with 5.0.12 version. Apache Kafka and IBM MQ are supported.

The following article shows an example how to send and receive messages from and to message brokers using OpenIG

You can use the following project as a base: https://github.com/maximthomas/openig-mb-example

Use Cases

Send HTTP Requests to Apache Kafka

The following setup allows to receive messages via HTTP protocol and send them to Apache Kafka topic.

Create Apache Kafka topic:

kafka-topics.sh --create --topic topic1 --bootstrap-server localhost:9092

Add Apache Kafka consumer handler to the heap in OpenIG configuration file:

config.json

{
  "heap": [
    ...
    {
      "name": "kafka-producer",
      "type": "MQ_Kafka",
      "config": {
        "bootstrap.servers": "kafka:9092",
        "topic.produce": "incoming-messages"
      }
    },
    ...
  ]
}

Some important MQ_Kafka handler settings:

Setting Name
boostrap.server Comma-separated list of host and port pairs that are the addresses of the Kafka brokers
topic.produce To which topic OpenIG should send messages
topic.consume From which topic should OpenIG consume messages
uri OpenIG route endpoint
method HTTP method, which OpenIG uses to send requests to the HTTP endpoint

Add OpenIG route to routes folder to process HTTP requests:

10-http2kafka.json

{
  "name": "${(request.method == 'PUT') and matches(request.uri.path, '^/http2kafka$')}",
  "condition": "${(request.method == 'PUT') and matches(request.uri.path, '^/http2kafka$')}",
  "monitor": true,
  "timer": true,
  "handler": {
    "type": "Chain",
    "config": {
    "filters": [],
      "handler": {
        "type": "DispatchHandler",
        "config": {
          "bindings": [
            {
              "handler": "kafka-consumer"
            }
          ]
        }
      }
    }
  }
}

Send HTTP request to OpenIG and then check received messages in topic1 topic:

$ curl -v -X PUT --data '{"data": "test"}' -H 'Content-Type: application/json' 'http://localhost:8080/http2kafka'
*   Trying 127.0.0.1:8080...
* TCP_NODELAY set
* Connected to localhost (127.0.0.1) port 8080 (#0)
> PUT /http2kafka HTTP/1.1
> Host: localhost:8080
> User-Agent: curl/7.68.0
> Accept: */*
> Content-Type: application/json
> Content-Length: 16
> 
* upload completely sent off: 16 out of 16 bytes
* Mark bundle as not supporting multiuse
< HTTP/1.1 202 Accepted
< Server: Apache-Coyote/1.1
< Content-Length: 0
< Date: Wed, 13 Apr 2022 12:34:03 GMT
< 
* Connection #0 to host localhost left intact
$ kafka-console-consumer.sh --topic topic1 --from-beginning --bootstrap-server localhost:9092
{"data": "test"}

Send Apache Kafka Messages to HTTP Endpoint

In the following configuration OpenIG will receive messages from Apache Kafka topic2 topic and send them to a HTTP endpoint

Create new Apache Kafka topic:

kafka-topics.sh --create --topic topic2 --bootstrap-server localhost:9092

Add Apache Kafka consumer handler to the heap in the OpenIG configuration file

config.json

{
  "heap": [
    ...
    {
      "name": "kafka-consumer",
      "type": "MQ_Kafka",
      "config": {
        "bootstrap.servers": "kafka:9092",
        "topic.consume": "topic2",
        "method": "POST"
      }
    },
    ...
  ]
}

Add OpenIG route to routes folder to process Apache Kafka messages:

10-kafka2http.json

{
  "name": "${(request.method == 'POST') and matches(request.uri.path, '^/kafka2http$')}",
  "condition": "${(request.method == 'POST') and matches(request.uri.path, '^/kafka2http$')}",
  "monitor": true,
  "timer": true,
  "handler": {
    "type": "Chain",
    "config": {
      "filters": [],
      "handler": {
      "type": "DispatchHandler",
        "config": {
          "bindings": [{
              "handler": "ClientHandler",
              "capture": "all",
              "baseURI": "${system['endpoint.api']}"
          }]
        }
      }
    }
  }
}

Send test data to the Apache Kafka topic:

$ kafka-console-producer.sh --topic topic2 --bootstrap-server localhost:9092
>{"data": "test"}

There is a new record in the sample service log:

2022-04-21 07:26:14.645 DEBUG 1 --- [nio-8080-exec-6] o.s.w.f.CommonsRequestLoggingFilter      : After request [POST /kafka2http, headers=[kafka-offset:"29", kafka-topic:"topic2", content-length:"16", host:"sample-service:8080", connection:"Keep-Alive", user-agent:"Apache-HttpAsyncClient/4.1.4 (Java/1.8.0_212)"], payload={"data": "test"}]

Send HTTP Requests to IBM MQ

The following setup allows to receive messages via HTTP protocol and send them to IBM MQ topic.

Add IBM MQ consumer handler to the heap in the OpenIG configuration file:

config.json

{
  "heap": [
    ...
    {
      "name": "mq-producer",
      "type": "MQ_IBM",
      "config": {
        "XMSC_WMQ_CONNECTION_NAME_LIST":"mq(1414)",
        "XMSC_WMQ_CHANNEL":"DEV.APP.SVRCONN",
        "XMSC_WMQ_QUEUE_MANAGER":"QM1",
        "XMSC_USERID":"app",
        "XMSC_PASSWORD":"passw0rd",
        "topic.produce": "DEV.QUEUE.1"
      }
    },
    ...
  ]
}

Some important MQ_IBM handler settings:

Setting Name
XMSC_WMQ_CONNECTION_NAME_LIST Comma-separated list of host and port that are the addresses of the IBM MQ brokers
XMSC_WMQ_CHANNEL IBM MQ channel name, used for connection
XMSC_USERID IBM MQ user id
XMSC_PASSWORD IBM MQ user password
topic.produce To which topic OpenIG should send messages
topic.consume From which topic should OpenIG consume messages
uri OpenIG route endpoint
method HTTP method, which OpenIG uses to send requests to the HTTP endpoint

Add OpenIG route to routes folder to process HTTP requests:

10-http2mq.json

{
  "name": "${(request.method == 'PUT') and matches(request.uri.path, '^/http2mq$')}",
  "condition": "${(request.method == 'PUT') and matches(request.uri.path, '^/http2mq$')}",
  "monitor": true,
  "timer": true,
  "handler": {
    "type": "Chain",
    "config": {
      "filters": [],
      "handler": {
        "type": "DispatchHandler",
        "config": {
          "bindings": [
            {
              "handler": "mq-producer"
            }
          ]
        }
      }
    }
  }
}

Send HTTP request to OpenIG and then check received messages in DEV.QUEUE.1 topic

$ curl -v -X PUT --data '{"data": "test"}' -H 'Content-Type: application/json' 'http://localhost:8080/http2mq'
*   Trying 127.0.0.1:8080...
* TCP_NODELAY set
* Connected to localhost (127.0.0.1) port 8080 (#0)
> PUT /http2mq HTTP/1.1
> Host: localhost:8080
> User-Agent: curl/7.68.0
> Accept: */*
> Content-Type: application/json
> Content-Length: 16
> 
* upload completely sent off: 16 out of 16 bytes
* Mark bundle as not supporting multiuse
< HTTP/1.1 202 Accepted
< Server: Apache-Coyote/1.1
< Content-Length: 0
< Date: Wed, 13 Apr 2022 12:34:03 GMT
< 
* Connection #0 to host localhost left intact

Open IBM MQ web console https://localhost:9443/ibmmq/console/, in the DEV.QUEUE.1 you should see new message in the console:

IBM MQ DEV.QUEUE1

Send IBM MQ Messages to HTTP Endpoint

Add IBM MQ producer handler to the heap in OpenIG configuration file

config.json

{
  "heap": [
    ...
    {
      "name": "mq-consumer",
      "type": "MQ_IBM",
      "config": {
        "XMSC_WMQ_CONNECTION_NAME_LIST":"mq(1414)",
        "XMSC_WMQ_CHANNEL":"DEV.APP.SVRCONN",
        "XMSC_WMQ_QUEUE_MANAGER":"QM1",
        "XMSC_USERID":"app",
        "XMSC_PASSWORD":"passw0rd",
        "topic.consume": "DEV.QUEUE.2",
        "uri": "/mq2http",
        "method": "POST"
      }
    }
    ...
  ]
}

Add OpenIG route to routes folder to process IBM MQ messages:

10-mq2http.json

{
  "name": "${(request.method == 'POST') and matches(request.uri.path, '^/mq2http$')}",
  "condition": "${(request.method == 'POST') and matches(request.uri.path, '^/mq2http$')}",
  "monitor": true,
  "timer": true,
  "handler": {
    "type": "Chain",
    "config": {
      "filters": [],
      "handler": {
        "type": "DispatchHandler",
        "config": {
          "bindings": [
            {
              "handler": "ClientHandler",
              "capture": "all",
              "baseURI": "${system['endpoint.api']}"
            }
          ]
        }
      }
    }
  }
}

Log in to the IBM MQ console, and create a message for DEV.QUEUE.2 topic

IBM MQ DEV.QUEUE1

In the sample-service log you should see the following record:

2022-04-21 08:32:35.007 DEBUG 1 --- [nio-8080-exec-1] o.s.w.f.CommonsRequestLoggingFilter      : After request [POST /mq2http, headers=[jms_ibm_character_set:"UTF-8", jms_ibm_encoding:"273", jms_ibm_format:"MQSTR", jms_ibm_msgtype:"8", jms_ibm_putappltype:"6", jms_ibm_putdate:"20220421", jms_ibm_puttime:"08323434", jmsxappid:"com.ibm.mq.webconsole", jmsxdeliverycount:"1", jmsxuserid:"unknown", content-length:"16", host:"sample-service:8080", connection:"Keep-Alive", user-agent:"Apache-HttpAsyncClient/4.1.4 (Java/1.8.0_212)"], payload={"data": "test"}]
