Event Mixin


The EventMixin class enables plugins to respond to certain triggered events.

When a certain (server-side) event occurs, the background worker passes the event information to any plugins which inherit from the EventMixin base class.

Enable Event Integration

The Enable Event Integration option must first be enabled to allow plugins to respond to events.

Implementing classes must provide a process_event function:

class EventPlugin(EventMixin, InvenTreePlugin):
    A simple example plugin which responds to events on the InvenTree server.

    This example simply prints out the event information.
    A more complex plugin could respond to specific events however it wanted.

    NAME = "EventPlugin"
    SLUG = "event"
    TITLE = "Triggered Events"

    def process_event(self, event, *args, **kwargs):
        print(f"Processing triggered event: '{event}'")


Events are passed through using a string identifier, e.g. build.completed

The arguments (and keyword arguments) passed to the receiving function depend entirely on the type of event.

Implementing a response to a particular event requires a working knowledge of the InvenTree code base, especially related to that event being received.
