Called once, during Kuzzle startup.


# Arguments

Copied to clipboard!
init(entryPoint, context);

Arguments Type Description
entryPoint EntryPoint Provides an interface to protocol related methods
context context Generic interface exposing objects and methods not directly related to the network layer

# Return

The init function can optionally return a promise. If it does, Kuzzle waits for the promise to be resolved before continuing its own initialization.

If a promise is returned, it must be resolved within the configured timeout (see services.common.defaultInitTimeout in Kuzzle's configuration)

If a promise is returned and rejected, or if the init function throws an error, Kuzzle aborts its start sequence and shuts down.
