NEW: process instance indexing through Kafka transport​

Sending data through Kafka : Instead of sending data directly from the process engine to ElasticSearch(ES), a new strategy is introduced where the process engine sends messages to a Kafka topic whenever there is something to be indexed from a process instance. Kafka Connect is configured to read these messages and send them to ElasticSearch for indexing. This approach allows for fire-and-forget communication, eliminating the need for the process engine to wait for indexing requests to complete.

Β»Process instance indexing

KafkaConnect ElasticSearch sink plugin​

A new component, Kafka Connect with configuration, has been added. This component enables Kafka Connect to listen to a specific topic where process instances generate messages and send those messages to Elastic Search indexes. The configuration includes the utilization of a KafkaConnect ElasticSearch sink connector plugin, which is responsible for handling this task. The plugin is configured with a connector.

New microservice: Advancing Controller​

Advancing Controller holds the liquibase database scripts for the advancing PostgreSQL. It is also watching if a process-engine worker pod is down.

When a pod is down, the service reassigns the work of that dead pod, to be picked up by other pods, avoiding process instances to be blocked in advancing.
