Connector for Connector API
The Intrexx Connector API defines a Java API for implementing your own Intrexx connectors that provide external data in Intrexx via an external data group. In principle, the API specifies two Java interfaces that should be implemented by developers to create, read, update, and delete data records and files in the external system (known as CRUD operations). In addition, a metadata model is stored in the connector configuration file. This describes the structure of the data groups (fields, relationships, settings) provided by the connector implementation. At runtime, the Connector API provides preconfigured clients for HTTP and OData requests that automatically perform user authentication – if required by the service – via HTTP Basic Auth or OAuth2. Furthermore, any Java library (e.g. JDBC, REST APIs, etc.) can be used in your own code.
Selecting "Connector API" menu / New data source will open a wizard where a new connection can be created. This option is available if the Connector for Connector API is selected under "Consume data" on the left-hand side. In all configuration dialogs, you can reach the corresponding Intrexx help by pressing F1 or clicking on the Help button. Every connection created by you is listed in the right-hand area. All of the functions available for editing a connection can be reached via "Connector API" menu, when an existing connection has been selected on the right.
