Published on April 26th, 2022


The Backstage backend restricts what resources can be fetched by default. This guide describes how to configure this list. This would allow you to do something like fetch a public API definition in a catalog info file.

By default only * and * are allowed.


Navigate to administration/backend in Roadie you should be able to click “add item” then enter the hostname of the resource you want to access in the host field and click “Save” then “Apply & restart”.

If you want to restrict access further you can add a list of paths and only resources under those paths will be allowed.
