Introduction

A Magento connection is configured using the Magento connector, establishing access to the Magento endpoint. Once a connection is established, you can configure one or more Magento activities associated with that connection to be used either as a source to provide data to an operation or as a target to consume data in an operation.

Creating or Editing a Magento Connection

From the design canvas, open the Connectivity tab of the design component palette:

To configure a new Magento connection, use the Show dropdown filter to select Connectors, and then click the Magento connector block:

Magento connection new

To configure an existing Magento connection, use the Show dropdown filter to select Endpoints, and then double-click the Magento connector block:

Magento connection existing

These open the configuration screen for the Magento connection, covered next.
