This tutorial will guide you through the process to adding the Kraken module to your proxy stack with default configuration files. This tutorial assumes you've cloned your application's git repository to your local machine.

Step 1 - Updating section.config.json

  1. Add the following object to your proxystack array in your section.config.json file located in the root of your repository.
    "name": "kraken",
    "image": "kraken:2.0.0"

{{% notice note %}} You can add this module at any index in your proxystack array. We'd recommend adding this module behind Varnish Cache. {{% /notice %}}

Step 2 - Adding default files

  1. Create a kraken directory in the root of your repository.
  2. Create the following files under the kraken directory:
    • kraken.json

Step 3 - Populate the kraken.json file

The kraken.json file will have the following format :

{{< gist section-io-gists c720b97f695ccabccf75c39239deb0c6 >}}

The api_key and api_key_secret will be provided to you by Section. You can contact us at

You can learn more about the different settings here.
