As part of the new version of the scanning mechanism in TAP which was released in Alpha in version 1.5, and has now been promoted to Beta in TAP 1.6, we now have a new component called the Artifact Metadata Repository Observer (AMR Observer).
This new component is part of the Artifact Metadata Repository (AMR), a service designed to be a central source of truth for artifact metadata across multiple clusters and environments.
AMR Observer watches for changes in resources and emits cloud events when these changes occur. It enhances the capabilities of the AMR by providing real-time updates about the state of resources.
The AMR Observer brings several key features to TAP 1.6:
- Real-time Monitoring: The AMR Observer watches for changes in specific resources and emits cloud events when these changes occur. This allows for real-time monitoring and tracking of resources.
- Customizable Configuration: Users can configure the AMR Observer to watch for changes in specific resources. This customization allows users to focus on the resources that are most relevant to their needs.
- Integration with AMR: As a component of the AMR, the AMR Observer contributes to the AMR’s goal of providing a single, consistent view of artifact metadata across multiple clusters and environments.
