    Posted Fri February 21, 2020 06:25 AM
    Hello,

    I'm using Resilient for multiple organizations (MSSP) , i want to know what to put in the configuration file 'app.config' :

    [resilient]
    # Basic service connection
    host=resilient.*****
    port=443

    # Use (api_key_id, api_key_secret)
    #api_key_id=ApiKeyId
    #api_key_secret=ApiKeySecret
    # Or (email, password)
    email=asabri@********
    password=*********

    org={Should i put the configuration organization here}

    # Actions Module connection
    #stomp_port=65001

    # Directory containing additional components to load
    # componentsdir=components
    # Existing directory to write logs to, or set with $APP_LOG_DIR
    logdir=/tmp
    logfile=app.log
    loglevel=DEBUG


    Thank you

    Hi Ayman,

    Please take a look at the Integration Server guide https://www.ibm.com/support/knowledgecenter/SSBRUQ_36.0.0/doc/Integration_Server/mssp_deploy.html for more information.

    In short, you need to reference the configuration org to install your apps/functions to the configuration org (resilient-circuits customize) but this instance of Resilient Circuits is only really to be used when adding/removing/updating these apps/functions so that they can be pushed down to the child orgs.

    You also need an instance of Resilient Functions for each child org as these instances are what will run the specific apps/functions when you call rules/workflow in the child orgs. In each instance you need to install the same apps/functions but you do not run resilient-circuits customize.

    If you search within the community you will find some other pages where this has been asked, for example https://community.ibm.com/community/user/security/communities/community-home/digestviewer/viewthread?MessageKey=9b298549-795f-4242-a296-5644cfbc3044&CommunityKey=d2f71e8c-108e-4652-b59c-29d61af7163e&tab=digestviewer#bm9b298549-795f-4242-a296-5644cfbc3044

    Hello, 

    I still have one question, i should install functions in the configuration orgnaization and push the config to all child orgs , and then configure resilient circuits on each child org, then the functions will work ?

    Hi Ayman,

    Yes. The instance that points to the configuration org will "push" (resilient-circuits customize) to the configuration org. This org will config push to the child orgs.

    You then need to have an instance of Resilient Circuits for each child org and these instances will NOT run resilient-circuits customize but they will run the calls to the functions and apps when they are triggered in the child orgs.

    Hope that makes sense.

    Hi Williams,

    Sorry but i need more help. Lets see an example :

    I have and configuration org called configORG, and child org called childORG
    I need to install resilient circuits for the configORG and configure the app.config then install my functions and run customize and push the configuration to childORG.
    now in the virtual envirenment, i need to install resilient circuits , "without installing the functions? or i should install the functions also in the childORG ?",  and configure the app.config then run circuits .

    So the resilient circuits should be run in both the configORG and childORG (without running customize in the child)and the functions of childORG should work right  ?

    Thank you soo much for help (y)

    Hi Ayman,

    "Now in the virtual envirenment, i need to install resilient circuits , "without installing the functions? or i should install the functions also in the childORG ?", and configure the app.config then run circuits."

    You need to install the functions as you have for the instance pointing to configORG.

    "So the resilient circuits should be run in both the configORG and childORG (without running customize in the child)and the functions of childORG should work right ?"

    Correct. A small difference is that the Resilient Circuits instance configured to use configORG does not need to be running all the time since all it is used for is to "push" up to the configORG.

    Hello Williams,

    Thank you soo much, functions work perfectly for child organizations.

    Hi Ayman,

    Generally the "forbidden" return code means the account you are using does not have the right permissions/roles. Please grant that account (or use another) Master Administrator access.

    Hello Wiliams,

    I would like to know, how can i keep the script run.py running , i'm connected to the virtual envirenment of a child org and the run.py is running using the command python run.py , if i exit from ssh i guess the script will stop running.

    Thank you,,

    Hi Ayman,

    It might be better asking in it's own thread.

    From a supported perspective you can use systemd (https://www.ibm.com/support/knowledgecenter/SSBRUQ_36.0.0/doc/Integration_Server/linux_install_restart.html) but that will start/stop Resilient Circuits not just that instance of python.

    Documentation states that each child org should have it's own instance of Resilient Circuits. If you have it set up in that way then you can use systemd.

    We recently announced (https://community.ibm.com/community/user/security/communities/community-home/digestviewer/viewthread?MessageKey=a5b0c640-7431-422f-b05b-a8197e51629f&CommunityKey=d2f71e8c-108e-4652-b59c-29d61af7163e&tab=digestviewer#bma5b0c640-7431-422f-b05b-a8197e51629f) which might be of interest to you. The MSSP model will require a number of instances of Resilient Circuits so running these in containers might be beneficial to you.

    Hi Williams,

    Thanks for your reply.

    Can i use this configuration for to run the run.py  (systemd)

    [Unit]
    Description=Resilient-Circuits Service
    After=resilient.service
    Requires=resilient.service

    [Service]
    Type=simple

    Restart=always
    TimeoutSec=10
    Environment=APP_CONFIG_FILE=~/DATAPROTECT/DATAPROTECT/lib/python2.7/site-packages/resilient_circuits/dataprotect.app.config
    Environment=APP_LOCK_FILE=/home/integration/.resilient/dataprotect.lock.file

    [Install]

    Thanks again .

    Hi Ayman,

    I don't believe that will work I'm afraid. The .service file configuration in https://www.ibm.com/support/knowledgecenter/SSBRUQ_36.0.0/doc/Integration_Server/linux_install_restart.html starts/stops Resilient Circuits not "python run.py."

    Hi Williams,

    So if the resilient circuits are running in the virtual envirenment , it means that the functions are running , without running the run.py script.

    Hi Ayman,

    I do not follow. You can start Resilient Circuits using systemd or by running "resilient circuits run."

    I think it might be better to create a new thread for this query as I have provided the supported means of starting Resilient Circuits, anything else is not tested and verified for use within a production environment.
