Connectors

Overview

This topic provides information about using Jitterbit Harmony Cloud Studio to connect to various data resources. These include Jitterbit Custom APIs, standards-based resources, and application-specific resources.

Connecting to these data resources is done through the configuration of Jitterbit Harmony connectors, which provide the interface for creating a connection to a data resource outside of Jitterbit Harmony.

In Cloud Studio, connectors are first configured to create connections. Activities are then created from connections and configured either as a source (to provide data) or as a target (to consume data) in an operation. Together, a specific connection and its activities are referred to as an endpoint.

Before you get started, refer to these pages for information that applies across multiple connectors:

  • Connector Basics: Terminology and definitions of connectivity resources, how to add an activity to an operation, and various actions that are available on all activities.
  • Connector Classifications: Classifications of connectors by use: API, short-term storage, long-term storage, service-based, or application. Connectors can also be differentiated by whether they use a connector-generated or user-defined schema.
  • REST-based Connector Considerations: Considerations when selecting a connector to use for a RESTful web service.
  • Common Connections and Activities: Many connectors follow a similar format for their connections and activities. These common activities are documented together.

Available Connectors

Information in this topic is organized by individual connector. See each connector for details on its prerequisites and configuration:

API

Short-term Storage

Long-term Storage

Service-based

Note

A beta version of Jitterbit's HTTP v2 (Beta) connector (an application connector) is also available. For more information, see REST-based Connector Considerations.

Application

Note

Application connectors listed above in italics and with an asterisk (such as Active Directory *) can be used only with Private Agents.

In addition, these connectors are application connectors:

Additional application-specific connectors are being added with each new Harmony release and are updated here over time.
