Create your own applications, integrations, and workflows or use those available on JetBrains Marketplace from third-party vendors.
Space provides a rich and well-documented HTTP API that Space users and administrators can use to perform a wide range of actions, including:
Webhooks can be set up to notify external services, such as an issue tracker, a CI/CD server, or a deployment tool, about events that occur in Space.
Webhooks are generally preferred over polling as a way to push notifications to external services.
Space supports webhooks both for global scope (organization-wide) and project/repository scope.
For those who would like to achieve even tighter integration with Space at the source code level, we are delivering an official Space Client SDK (software development kit) for Kotlin and .NET.
Developers can use the Space Client SDK for Kotlin to take advantage of the Space API while writing their applications in JVM-based languages, such as Java, Kotlin, Scala, and many others.
There are two types of Space applications:
Applications are distributed via JetBrains Marketplace, a platform where extension developers can publish their applications so that they can be found and installed by end users. It supports all JetBrains products and it will support Space applications, too. Marketplace hosts free and paid extensions.
Private applications are those developed and distributed in your organization without being shared on the JetBrains Marketplace. With private applications, you can support unique use cases and workflows in your company.
With applications and integrations connected to Space, you can interact with messages, code reviews, issues, to-do lists, and meetings right in Space Chats without any context switching and distractions.
Interactive bots are a first-class citizen of the Space extensibility model. Applications can register bots which will respond to messages right in the Chats, and you will be able to interact with them via text and smart actions (such as buttons for multiple choice questions).
In addition to bots, Space has Slash Commands – a way to communicate with your application by typing a /command into the message box.
In order for applications, integrations, and external services to access your Space we use OAuth2, the industry-standard protocol for authorization. Any application or API client connecting to Space must be an OAuth 2.0 Client.
Alternatively, you can use personalized tokens.
In both cases, granular permissions should be set.
Our team is actively working on additional extensibility for Space. Right now we are exploring the following:
Whether you are a customer, a free plan user, a consultant, or a software vendor, we are committed to providing you with an open platform to develop on top of Space, at no additional cost.
If you are interested in partnering with JetBrains Space and building on top of it (either with an application on the Marketplace or as a custom services provider), please have a look at the JetBrains Space Partnership Programs.
