Integrate API with Nuxeo Event system


The bundles provides a service that wraps the Analytics Java lib provided by


This Service gives access to the 2 main API entry points : identifyand track.

Although this service can be used directly, the typical use case is to use the provided infrastructure to bridge Nuxeo events to calls.

For this, a generic listener is provided : based on the configuration it will convert / map Nuxeo events to calls to API.

A typical use case could be :

`loginSucceed`    in Nuxeo => call identify on
`documentCreated` in Nuxeo => call track    on

Building / Install

Build :

mvn clean install

Install bundle

cp target/nuxeo-segmentio-connector-5.8.jar $NUXEO_HOME/templates/custom/bundles/

Install lib

cp ~/.m2/repository/com/github/segmentio/analytics/0.3.1/analytics-0.3.1.jar $NUXEO_HOME/templates/custom/lib/
cp ~/.m2/repository/com/google/code/gson/gson/2.2/gson-2.2.jar $NUXEO_HOME/templates/custom/lib/

Server side integration

The SegmentIO API is exposed a Nuxeo Service and plugged to Nuxeo event bus via a mapping system.

The mapping is managed via the mapping extenson point.

The configuration mapping is based on Groovy Scripting engine.

Default mapping and Groovy context

When calling the API (identify or track), Nuxeo service will always send a minimal set of metadata :

  • email : principal.getEmail()
  • firstName : principal.getFirstName()
  • lastName : principal.getLastName()

However, you can override this default binding, by providing custom bindng for these fields email, firstName, lastName.

The parameters binding, is generated from a Groovy script evaluated in a context containing :

  • event : the Nuxeo event object
  • eventContext : context of the event (shortcut for event.getContext())
  • principal : the NuxeoPrincipal user object
  • mapping : the HashMap that will be used to resolve the mapping

If the event is associated to a Document event, the context will also contain :

  • doc : the source DocumentModel for the event
  • repository : name of the source repository
  • session : CoreSession
  • dest : DocumentRef to the target Document if any

The principal is normally extracted from the context and will be used to fetch the default values for email, firstName, lastName. If you need to use a different value for the principal, you can simply override the default resolution by putting a principal field in the binding.

Parameters bindings

Here is a simple binding :

Bind loginSucceed to call identify on

<mapper name="testIdentify" targetAPI="Identify">
    <parameter name="plugin">eventContext.getProperty("AuthenticationPlugin")</parameter>
    <parameter name="company">principal.getCompany()</parameter>

Bind documentCreated to call track on and propagate document title

<mapper name="testTrac" >
    <parameter name="title">doc.getTitle()</parameter>

Direct Groovy scripting

The parameters system is used to generate a Groovy script.

Typically, this XML configuration

    <parameter name="plugin">eventContext.getProperty("AuthenticationPlugin")</parameter>
    <parameter name="company">principal.getCompany()</parameter>

Will result in this script

    mapping.put("plugin", eventContext.getProperty("AuthenticationPlugin"));
    mapping.put("company", principal.getCompany());

If needed you can directly contribute the groovy script in addition or in replacement of the parameters binding.

About Grouping

The SegmentIO java lib does not expose a group API, but the corresponding REST API does exist.

So, the Nuxeo integration module will try to automatically generate a group call uppon identify is the mapping contains some meta-data about the groups.

Technically, all meta-data starting with group_ will be considered as group meta-data, so just adding a group_id and group_name to the mapping should generate a call to the group REST API.

Client side integration

It may be useful to also provide a client side integration.

JSF / BackOffice

When deployed the segment-io bundle will automatically extend the default footer to include script.

This includes :

  • dynamic loading analytics.js + dependencies
  • init analytics.js with the configured WriteKey
  • calling page API
  • calling identify API once per session

You can also do a direct integration in your xhtml template using :

<ui:include src="/incl/segmentio.xhtml" />

Other Web UI

Outside of JSF, for example in WebEngine, you can include a dynamically generated script :

<script src="/nuxeo/site/segmentIO"></script>

This script will :

  • dynamic loading analytics.js + dependencies
  • init analytics.js with the configured WriteKey
  • calling page API

If you want to call the identify API, you can directly call

identifyIfNeeded(login, email, traits)

A typical call in the context of a WebEngine page would be :

identifyIfNeeded('${}', '${}', {company: ${}});

NB : this script is served as anonymous.

An alternative is to use a script that is generated for your user:

<script src="/nuxeo/site/segmentIO/user/XXX"></script>

XXX should be the actual login of the currently loggedin user.

Typically :

<script src="/nuxeo/site/segmentIO/user/${}"></script>

NB : this script is served for authenticated users.


Some client and/or server side configuration parameters are available through the config, integrations andfilters extension points.


This extension point will allow you to define your segmentIO write key :

<extension target=""

NB : There is a default debug key that will prevent actual server calls on development servers => FakeKey_ChangeMe

You can also define some custom global parameters to use anywhere in your code by calling Framework.getService(SegmentIO.class).getGlobalParameters(), it will return a Map<String,String> :

<extension target=""
			<patameter name="myParamKey">MyParamValue</parameter>

Some of these parameters are used by the Service to do special things :

<patameter name="MARKETO_SECRET">XXXX</parameter>

Will allow you to call the marketo/{email} endpoint to retrieve the Marketo Lead Hash corresponding to the passed email (see for detailed usage)

optedOutCondition parameter
<patameter name="optedOutCondition">typeof myCookieManager !== 'undefined' && myCookieManager.isUserOptedOut()</parameter>

Will allow you to check a JS condition before loading client side analytics scripts. This is useful to manage legal cookie policy in some countries.


This extension point will allow you to filter the logins that will actually identify when calling the identify method (server side) or the identifyIfNeeded method (client side).

You can enable or disable the identification of your Nuxeo Anonymous user (default value is false) :

<extension target=""

And define a custom list of blacklisted users :

<extension target=""


This extension point allow you to control the segmentIO integrations to enable for each identify or track call :

<extension target=""
			<integration name="Marketo">true</integration>

NB: by default, all integrations are enabled. If only one is enabled, it will disable the others.
