IDE integration overview

Zato supports hot-deployment of Python modules loaded in one of several supported Integrated Development Environments directly to a cluster, enabling faster develop/test cycles when developing services.

Supported IDEs are:

It is recommended to use VS Code with Zato as that allows you to debug your services directly from the IDE.

In a newly installed Zato cluster, the IDE deployment service and channel are pre-configured and associated with a default account, ide_publisher, which is created with a randomly assigned password that needs to be changed before a plug-in for a given IDE can be used.

Configuration steps

  • To reset the ide_publisher's password, first visit the Security -> HTTP Basic Auth section of Dashboard for your cluster:

  • Then, use Change password option for the pre-installed ide_publisher credential to set a new password that your IDE will authenticate with when it deploys services to Zato.
