Orchestrating existing Microservices (REST)

Hi Guys,

I have been trying to understand how Zeebe could be used to orchestrate existing microservices (REST Api). What feel is that to use Zeebe

  1. I need to write the Zeebe client and probably plug my microservice logic into it.
  2. There is no away to plug existing REST based microservices to Zeebe.
  3. or create some kind of connector.

Is my understanding correct? A response on this will enable to me to decide whether to use Zeebe or not.
Thanks

Hi @vidhyabhushanbahl,

there are different ways to connect your microservices.

  1. Use a generic REST worker to call the REST APIs of the microservices. For example: https://github.com/zeebe-io/zeebe-http-worker
  2. Integrate one of the Zeebe client into the microservices to connect them to the Zeebe broker

Does this help you?

Best regards,
Philipp

Another option - Camunda Cloud (or implementing the same thing yourself). See the section about the HTTP Worker here: https://zeebe.io/blog/2019/09/getting-started-camunda-cloud/
