EDI for Cloud Connector


The Jitterbit Harmony EDI for Cloud Connector establishes access to eiCloud.

The EDI for Cloud connector provides an interface for creating an EDI for Cloud connection, the foundation used for generating instances of EDI for Cloud activities. These activities, once configured, interact with eiCloud through the connection.

The EDI for Cloud connector is accessed from the design component palette's Connectivity tab (see Connectors in Design Component Palette).

Connector Overview

This connector is used to first configure an EDI for Cloud connection. Activity types associated with that connection are then used to create instances of activities that are intended to be used as sources (to provide data in an operation) or targets (to consume data in an operation).

Together, a specific EDI for Cloud connection and its activities are referred to as an EDI for Cloud endpoint:

EDI for Cloud activity types

  • Get Document: Retrieves all documents (from a specified partner) from eiCloud and is intended to be used as a source in an operation.

  • Send Document: Sends documents to eiCloud and is intended to be used as a target in an operation.

  • Get Status: Retrieves the status of documents from eiCloud and is intended to be used as a source in an operation.


Verbose logging can be enabled for this connector when it is used with a Private Agent. See Verbose Logging for Connectors for details.

Invoke verbose logging for this connector using this configuration entry:

<logger name="org.jitterbit.connector.verbose.logging.edi" level="DEBUG"/>


This connector is a Connector SDK-based connector, which may be referred to by Jitterbit when communicating changes made to connectors built with the Connector SDK.

Prerequisites and Supported API Versions

The EDI for Cloud connector requires the use of an agent version 10.1 or later. These agent versions automatically download the latest version of the connector when required.

The EDI for Cloud connector uses a custom Jitterbit API. Contact Jitterbit Support for information on the schema fields.
