Configure Connectors


Connectors continue to be released outside the IDM release. For the latest documentation, refer to the ICF documentation.

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