The Jitterbit Clarizen Connector supports connecting to Clarizen, the cloud-based project management application, and exposes supported entities. This enables users to perform Create, Update, Query, and Delete operations on the exposed entities of the Clarizen application. The connector supports the Clarizen Query Language (CZQL). You can also extend the current functionality of Clarizen and integrate with other third-party systems.
Clarizen Connector Functionality¶
The Clarizen Connector allows you to connect to your Clarizen instance and add or delete data, update existing data, or retrieve data for use in Jitterbit integrations. The following activities are available under the Clarizen Connector in Jitterbit Studio:
Clarizen Connector Endpoint
Each endpoint represents the URL and login credentials for a specific Clarizen account. Creating the endpoint allows Jitterbit to access the account to perform the requested operations. You must create at least one Clarizen endpoint in order to use the other activities available in the Clarizen Connector.
Clarizen Connector Create
Creates new data in the Clarizen instance.
Clarizen Connector Update
Updates existing data in the Clarizen instance.
Clarizen Connector Query
Searches for existing data from the Clarizen instance.
Clarizen Connector Delete
Deletes an existing record in the Clarizen instance.
The Clarizen application does not support a native upsert functionality. However, you can still upsert data into Clarizen using Jitterbit by chaining together Clarizen create and update operations. For further detail and examples of how to use Jitterbit to upsert data into Clarizen, see Integration Pattern for Clarizen Upsert.
