SMB Connector

Summary

The Jitterbit Harmony SMB Connector establishes access to folders and files in a remote server using the SMB (Server Message Block) protocol.

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

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

Note

The SMB connector requires and can be run only on a Jitterbit Harmony Private Agent.

Connector Overview

This connector is used to first configure an SMB 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 SMB connection and its activities are referred to as an SMB endpoint:

SMB activity types

  • Delete File: Deletes files from an SMB server and is intended to be used as a target in an operation.

  • Search: Returns all files within a folder in an SMB server and is intended to be used as a source in an operation.

  • Update File: Updates files in an SMB server and is intended to be used as a target in an operation.

  • Delete Folder: Deletes folders from an SMB server and is intended to be used as a target in an operation.

  • Create Folder: Creates folders in an SMB server and is intended to be used as a target in an operation.

  • Update Folder: Updates folders in an SMB server and is intended to be used as a target in an operation.

  • Create File: Creates files in an SMB server and is intended to be used as a target in an operation.

Prerequisites and Supported API Versions

The SMB connector requires the use of Private Agent version 10.1 or later. These agent versions automatically download the latest version of the connector when required.

The SMB connector supports SMB versions 2.1, 3.0, 3.0.2, and 3.1.1.
