Adding Agents to the Pipeline

In this section, you will learn about Kaholo agents and how to add them to your pipeline. Agents are essential to your pipelines as it is a critical requirement before execution.

To access the Agents option, follow the steps below:

1. Open the project and pipeline that you want to update. By default, when opening a pipeline, you will be directed to the pipeline’s Design tab.

2. In the Design sub-menu, click the Agents icon.

What is a Trigger

A trigger is an initial input that starts off the pipeline execution. It is an event listener such as a webhook catcher. Whenever the event throws a webhook, the trigger catches it and executes the pipeline.

To access the Plugins option, follow the steps below:

1. Open the project and pipeline that you want to update. By default, when opening a pipeline, you will be directed to the pipeline’s Design tab.

2. In the Design sub-menu, click the Plugins icon.

3. After clicking the icon, the Plugins Bar will expand. Select a plugin and Drag and Drop it into the Designer panel.

It is important to note that as soon as the plugin appears in the Designer pane, it will be called a Process. To know more about pipeline development, see the First Pipeline Development article.
