A platform for automating stackstorm and integrating with the HPE Composable Fabric Manager.

By now we know that there is some stackstorm goodness inside the Composable Fabric Manager. Perhaps we could find it and use it natively. Well, you can easily find it, the trouble is it has been locked down fairly well. Using it is just an exercise in futility.

If we start developing stackstom integrations from this platform, it opens up an entire ecosystem in stackstorm exchange. All that is necessary is to be able to “talk” back to the CFM. That is the function of stackstorm-hpe-cfm integration pack. The architecture looks like this:

Look for additional enhancements to sidekick coming soon.
