Configuring the Edge Delta Agent

Use Visual Pipelines or a text editor to configure the agent.


Edge Delta agents with v3 configuration files (agent v0.1.71 or higher) can be configured using Visual Pipelines. Agents older than v0.1.71 use configuration v2.

Create an Agent Configuration

  1. In the Edge Delta App, click Pipelines, and select Pipelines.
  2. Click New Pipeline.
  3. Select the appropriate template.
  4. Specify a tag to identify the agent and environment.
  5. Click Create Configuration.
  6. A new default agent is created. Review the agent configuration in Visual Pipelines.

When you return to the Pipelines page, the new agent configuration is listed.

To delete an Agent Configuration:

  1. Click Pipelines - Pipelines.
  2. Select the pipeline you want to delete.
  3. Click Delete Pipeline.

Open an Agent Configuration Using Visual Pipelines

  1. In the Edge Delta App, click Pipelines and select Pipelines.
  2. Select the pipeline you want to view.

Create a Node

To create a node:

  1. Open Visual Pipelines.
  2. Click Edit Mode.
  1. Click either Add Input, Add Processor, or Add Output and select the type of node, for example Add Processor - Transformation - Mask Processor.
  1. The node appears in the appropriate pane and the configuration pane opens.
  2. Enter the configuration details and click Okay.

Alternatively, you can add a processor node directly onto an existing link - hover over the link, click the Add (+) icon, and select the node type. This creates the new processor node in the position where the add icon was, and also connects it to the upstream and downstream nodes on the link.

To delete a node, select it and hover over it, then select the Bin icon.

Test Node Configuration

Some nodes have a testing feature where you can specify an input log and see output based on the configuration of the node. See Designing Pipelines and Testing Nodes.

Configure Agents using a Text Editor

Some configuration v3 parameters are advanced, requiring them to be configured only in YAML rather than Visual Pipelines. You may also prefer or be required to configure in YAML using a text editor, for example if you are passing in a local configuration file.

To edit an agent configuration using YAML:

  1. Click Pipelines and select Legacy Pipelines.
  2. Select the kebab (⋮) icon in the Actions column for the agent and select Edit.

The Edit Configuration dialog box opens. You can edit the configuration and also test some of the configuration components.

  1. Click Save Edits.

Next Steps

Next you need to wire up the new node using links.
