FireHydrant plugin

Plugin details
Created byFireHydrant
CategoryIncident management
TypeOpen-source plugin


Application configuration YAML

No action required

This plugin requires a backend proxy configuration to make calls to FireHydrant with authentication. The following configuration is set by default and you do not need to change anything:

target: ""
"api/proxy/firehydrant/api/?": "/"
changeOrigin: true
Authorization: Bearer ${FIREHYDRANT_TOKEN}


Since the FIREHYDRANT_TOKEN variable is used in the application configuration, you must generate a FireHydrant API token and set it as the value of FIREHYDRANT_TOKEN. You can do this in your FireHydrant app.

Delegate proxy

No action required

This plugin does not require a delegate proxy to be set up because FireHydrant is publicly accessible.


This plugin exports a UI card that you can show on the Overview tab of a service or on any other layout page. Go to Admin > Layout, choose Service in the dropdown menu, and then add the following YAML code in the Overview section:

- component: FirehydrantCard


To further configure the plugin for a service in the software catalog, set the following annotation in its catalog-info.yaml definition file:

annotations: <firehydrant-service-name>


The plugin is owned by FireHydrant and managed in the Backstage repository as an open-source project. Create a GitHub issue to report bugs or suggest new features for the plugin.
