Configure Connectors

Connectors are configured through the ICF provisioner service. Each connector configuration is stored in a file in your project's conf/ directory, and accessible over REST at the openidm/conf endpoint. Connector configuration files are named project-dir/conf/provisioner.openicf-name where name corresponds to the name of the connector.

If you are creating your own connector configuration files, do not include additional dash characters ( - ) in the connector name, as this might cause problems with the OSGi parser. For example, the name provisioner.openicf-hrdb.json is fine. The name provisioner.openicf-hr-db.json is not.

You can create a connector configuration in the following ways:

  • Start with the sample provisioner files in the /path/to/openidm/samples/example-configurations/provisioners directory. For more information, see "Sample Provisioner Files".

  • Set up connectors with the help of the Admin UI. Log in to the Admin UI at https://localhost:8443/admin, then continue with the process described in "Creating Connector Configurations With the Admin UI".

  • Use the service that IDM exposes through the REST interface to create basic connector configuration files. For more information, see "Configure Connectors Over REST".

  • Use the cli.sh or cli.bat scripts to generate a basic connector configuration. For more information, see "configureconnector".
