2. Robolytix module installation

The Robolytix module for Drupal is available at https://www.drupal.org/project/robolytix. The module can be installed via Drupal user interface or via composer.

Installation via Drupal user interface

Go to that Robolytix module's page then copy the "tar.gz" link under the Downloads section at the bottom of that page.

Then paste that link on your site at /admin/modules/install in the URL box, then press Install.

Finally enable the module at /admin/modules/ page.

Installation via composer

Install Robolytix module via ‘composer require drupal/robolytix’, then enable the Robolytix module at /admin/modules/ page.

3. Connecting the Robolytix service to Drupal CMS

At /admin/config/system/robolytix, you are asked to provide Robolytix API key. You can obtain that key in the Robolytix service.

You can also set the process type of your sonars.

  • Directly: The data is sent to the Robolytix service straight away.
  • Process in the background: The data is sent by background worker on CRON run. This is the recommended option, but the CRON must be set up in your Drupal. It can guarantee that the Sonar was sent correctly.

4. Use Sonars in Drupal

Firstly create your process in the Robolytix service.

Add a Sonar in Drupal user interface

Go to /admin/config/system/robolytix, there you can map your Robolytix process to node’s content moderation. Sonars can be added to the operations: create, update, delete. The end sonar is automatically sent when the node is published.

If you use the ‘Content moderation’ module there are also available Sonars for moderation states

Add a Sonar programatically

The Sonars can be easily added to any hooks:

$robolytix = \Drupal::service('robolytix.robolytix_api');
$event = new \Drupal\robolytix\Event\SonarEvent('processId', 'sonarName', 'sonarType', 'runId', 'message');
$robolytix->processSonar($event);
