Rubrik has launched an open source community called Rubrik Build. Here participants can propose new applications, automation solutions and integrations to simplify monitoring, testing, development and automated workflows.

With Build, the company wants to create a vibrant community around its own APIs, to start quickly with pre-built cases, quick start manuals and integrations with popular tooling. “The Build program was designed with our customers in mind to simplify their transition to consuming APIs,” said Rebecca Fitzhugh of Rubrik in a blog post.

The platform is therefore aimed at people in the tech community who do not have a traditional software engineering background. There’s no barrier to contribute: “Anyone can share their ideas and update documentation.”


On the homepage of Rubrik Build you can see all open source projects. All projects are hosted on GitHub, licensed for sharing, and contain various levels of documentation. The projects were divided into three main categories.

The Software Development Kits (SDKs) category contains the programming languages that make it possible to build applications using Rubrik’s APIs. Under Tooling Integrations, users will find tools that integrate with Rubrik to make testing, development or monitoring tasks simpler and more efficient. Finally, the use cases are automated workflows that can be used in an environment to achieve a goal.

Each project is designed according to the company to be easy to use. In order to contribute to a project, the repository at GitHub must be visited. “An easy way to start is to go to the Issues tab in a repository and see the bug reports and questions for improvements. Some problems get the label first-timer to indicate that this is an easy task for beginners, so everyone can join in,” said Fitzhugh.
