ConnectorsΒΆ

Connector is a core component in Open Celium. It is a system to which we will send requests and get responses. They are can be different throw different protocols: HTTP, JSON-RPC, SOAP, and so on. Currently, HTTP and JSON-RPC are available. Connector uses invokers. Invoker is a special file filled in with instructions. There are 3 test invokers for i-doit, OTRS and sensu systems.

The list of groups display a title one the left top corner and an image of the invoker on the right top corner.

Viewing the connector you can read a description of the connector itself and information about invoker to which it was assigned, like: title, description, and operations.

Adding/Updating connector consists of two steps: general data, and credentials. General data step has three input fields: title, description and invoker. The title and invoker are required fields.

Credentials step has several input fields. We need this step to set connection to the system that describes invoker. The type of fields depends on the chosen invoker. Different invokers have different authentication systems, that are described inside of the invoker. All fields usually are required. If the invoker has a password field, you can click on the checkbox on the right to see what you are typing instead of asterixis. Before adding/updating you test the connection. If it was completed successfully you can finish the process.
