Invoice Service

This sample Flogo application is used to demonstrate some key Flogo constructs:

  • Input/Output mappings
  • Complex object mapping
  • Invoke REST service


├── Dockerfile           <-- A Dockerfile to build a container based on an Alpine base image
├── Makefile             <-- A Makefile to help build and deploy the app
├── invoice-svc.yml      <-- The Kubernetes deployment file
├── invoiceservice.json  <-- The Flogo app
├── README.md            <-- This file

Make targets

The Makefile has a few targets:

  • clean: Remove the dist folder for a new deployment
  • clean-kube: Remove all the deployed artifacts from Kubernetes
  • build-app: Build an executable (both in Linux format as well as the native format of the current OS)
  • build-docker: Build a Docker container
  • run-docker: Run the Docker image with default settings
  • run-kube: Deploy the app to Kubernetes

For more detailed information on the commands that are executed you can check out the Makefile


After starting the app, it will register one endpoints:

  • /api/invoices/:id: Get the invoice details for the invoice ID. The app also reaches out to the paymentservice app

Building the app

To build via the Flogo CLI, simply download the invoiceservice.json to your local machine and create the app structure:

flogo create -f invoiceservice.json invoiceservice
cd invoiceservice

Now you can simply build the application and leverage the HTTP REST trigger as the entry point:

flogo build -e

The -e switch indicates that the binary should embed the flogo.json.

Run the application

Now that the application has been built, run the application:

cd bin
export HTTPPORT=9998
export PAYMENTSERVICE=http://localhost:9999/api/expected-date/:id

Note that this app does require the paymentservice app to be running as well

Test the application by opening your browser or via CURL and getting the following URL: http://localhost:9998/api/invoices/2345

The following result should appear:


Note that the expectedPaymentDate comes from the paymentservice app. If that app isn't running or if the URL is misconfigured it will return as null

Importing into Flogo Web

If you want to import this flow into Flogo Web, please note there is a this is a current limitation in Flogo Web that it doesn't automatically import activities you do not have installed yet. To workaround this you can open an existing flow (or create a new flow) and import the activities using the "Install new activity" button. For this app you'll need to install:

Nothing but Go?
