AT&T Flow Designer - Uploading customized node to AT&T Flow Designer site
Uploading customized node to AT&T Flow Designer site
05.03.2017 09:03 AM
Does anyone know, or is there any previous post, on how to install our own customzed nodes into AT&T Flow Designer as a tool for our developer to use?
In our locally hosted Node-Red server GUI, we have an option of "Manage Pallete" in the menu, which allows install nodes from npm repo or from a locally installed npm package.
In AT&T FD environemnt, how could we install a customized node?
Appreciate it for any help!

We are upgrading Flow Designer to use node-red 0.16.x these coming days (this have not happened yet), but even when we do, the manage palette will not be there initially, as in hosted implementation Flow lives on, we need more information before we can take a node from the community and add it to the palette, for example, inputs and outputs, as we need to ensure these will be accessible securely from anywhere. This is not the case for local installation of node-red. This is not to say we are not working on adding this feature, but I do not have a date I can give you for it :)
In the meantime, please look at the documentation here: https://flow.att.io/help/create_node as to how you upload custom node to Flow. This custom node will exist on the project you uploaded it onto and any one forked from it. If you feel this should be available for everyone using Flow, let us know and we would be happy adding it to the palette, if makes sense to many of our customers.
