This section provides a description of the XME.digital architecture.
In order to get to the Administration, first of all, you’ll need to see its architecture with microservices (Picture 1). XME.digital implements micro-service architecture having the following components in place.
Picture 1. High Level Architecture
1. Unified Web Frontend
Universal frontend for Customers, Customer Service, Contact Center & Back-Office. Collects information from XME.digital backend components, and 3rd party-data sources. Presents data and functions on configuration-based Dashboard-styled interface for every group of users.
Front End request proxy and request route management.
Incoming request handling
Proxy API bypass
Serving static http content
First level cache
3. S3 Storage
S3 storage is a storage for the public content like avatars, images, landing pages. Content storage is a distributed object store and file system designed to provide excellent performance, reliability and scalability.
Gateway registers back end components, allowing to scale system by demand in real time.
Gateway main responsibilities:
API request routing
security and access control policy
automatic api documentation
User authentication and authorization module implementing OAuth2 authorisation protocol, two-factor authentication and centralized Identity Management platforms.
User registration and forgot password functionality.
Role-based and Attribute-based access control.
Social Login (Facebook, Google, Linkedin).
2 step authentication with email confirmation.
A runtime application on which all applications registers and get their configuration from. It also provides runtime monitoring dashboards.
7. Entity Microservice
Represents business entities like, but not limited to:
Products, Handlings etc.
Entity microservice allows to configure entities lifecycles, additional business attributes and business controls, relation between entities (horizontal and hierarchical). All entities attributes, life cycle and business scenarios are configuration-based and provides run-time possibility to modify data structure.
8. Timeline Microservice
Stores and presents all historical information about system events and entities updates. Timeline provides high-speed data access for event filtering.
9. Balance Microservice
Represents balance management API, hi level financial operations and by demand integration point with 3rd party payment channels.
10. Dashboard Microservice
Dashboard manages all user’s interactive dashboards and widgets with static and dynamic information and functions based on the configuration and access control rules.
11. Config Microservice
Stores and presents configuration in SVC for all XME.digital modules and microservices.
Provides real-time configuration refresh functionality.
