Rapid7 is excited to announce the launch of Rapid7 Discuss, a forum and community intended to serve as a home for analysts, developers, and security practitioners alike to freely chat and support one another regarding Rapid7 extensions. We’ve listened to your feedback stressing the importance of a place where Rapid7 experts and product users can share their expertise and solve problems together. Rapid7 Discuss is focused on tackling all things related to extensibility needs.

What exactly is an extension? Simply put, it’s an add-on that enhances or “extends” the functionality of Rapid7 Insight products. Currently, there’s a few different types of extensions, including the following:

  • Integrations
  • Plugins
  • Workflows

With that in mind, we’ve built Rapid7 Discuss to ensure that everyone can find what they’re looking for. For folks looking to learn more about how to best use extensions, head over to our Using Rapid7 Extensions category, where we have general tips and tricks, configuration guides, and best practices. If you’re looking to get started creating your own extensions or using Rapid7 APIs, check out our Building Rapid7 Extensions category. There, you’ll find plenty of information on product APIs or SDKs, programming language questions, and advice from fellow developers—Rapid7 or otherwise.

At its core, we want Rapid7 Discuss to be a community where people can engage with our experts and other users about the usage and development of these extensions. If you have questions, feedback, or knowledge you want to share, come join us!
