The Gzip connector for Jitterbit Harmony Cloud Studio provides an interface for creating a Gzip connection. That connection provides the foundation to configure associated Gzip activities that interact with the connection. Together, a specific Gzip connection and its activities are referred to as a Gzip endpoint.
The HTTP connection setting HTTP Accept Encoding Gzip and the SOAP connection setting Set Accept-Encoding to Gzip, which are used to automatically decompress Gzip-compressed responses returned by HTTP and SOAP activities, respectively, are unrelated to the Gzip connector.
The Gzip 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.
This connector is used to first configure a Gzip connection, establishing access to the Gzip endpoint, and then used to configure one or more Gzip activities associated with that connection as a source or target within an operation:
Decompress: Decompresses a Base64-encoded string of Gzip-compressed data in a Gzip endpoint and is intended to be used as a source in an operation.
Compress: Compresses a string of content into a Base64-encoded string of Gzip-compressed data in a Gzip endpoint and is intended to be used as a target in an operation.
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.
Accessing the Connector¶
The Gzip connector is accessed from the Connectivity tab of the design component palette by using the Show dropdown to filter on Connectors.
Once a connection is configured, activities associated with the endpoint are available by using the Show dropdown to filter on Endpoints and then clicking the Gzip connection block:
