Node-RED is a good companion for Data Manipulation Plugin because it is simple, visual, and does not require developer experience.
Thanks to community member Alejandro Guida for the explanation.
Use cases of Node-RED related to Data Manipulation Plugin:
- Manage the authentication (get and renew the token) for API Services that require OAuth2 authentication. Doing “API inside API”, because Data Manipulation Plugin cannot manage that kind of authentication.
- API Gateway for “relax” CORS restrictions, because Node-RED default response includes
- Manage authentication over all the destination databases and APIs to use single authentication for all the services.
