Setting the Connector Reference Properties

The following example shows a connector reference object:

"connectorRef" : {
    "bundleName"    : "org.forgerock.openicf.connectors.csvfile-connector",
    "bundleVersion" : "[1.5.1.4,1.6.0.0)",
    "connectorName" : "org.forgerock.openicf.csvfile.CSVFileConnector",
    "connectorHostRef" : "csv"
}
bundleName

string, required

The ConnectorBundle-Name of the ICF connector.

bundleVersion

string, required

The ConnectorBundle-Version of the ICF connector. The value can be a single version (such as 1.4.0.0) or a range of versions, which lets you support multiple connector versions in a single project.

You can specify a range of versions as follows:

  • [1.1.0.0,1.4.0.0] indicates that all connector versions from 1.1 to 1.4, inclusive, are supported.

  • [1.1.0.0,1.4.0.0) indicates that all connector versions from 1.1 to 1.4, including 1.1 but excluding 1.4, are supported.

  • (1.1.0.0,1.4.0.0] indicates that all connector versions from 1.1 to 1.4, excluding 1.1 but including 1.4, are supported.

  • (1.1.0.0,1.4.0.0) indicates that all connector versions from 1.1 to 1.4, exclusive, are supported.

When a range of versions is specified, IDM uses the latest connector that is available within that range. If your project requires a specific connector version, you must explicitly state the version in your connector configuration file, or constrain the range to address only the version that you need.

connectorName

string, required

The connector implementation class name.

connectorHostRef

string, optional

If the connector runs remotely, the value of this field must match the name field of the RemoteConnectorServers object in the connector server configuration file (provisioner.openicf.connectorinfoprovider.json). For example:

...
    "remoteConnectorServers" :
        [
            {
                "name" : "dotnet",
                ...
            }
        ]
...

If the connector runs locally, the value of this field can be one of the following:

  • If the connector .jar is installed in openidm/connectors/, the value must be "#LOCAL". This is currently the default, and recommended location.

  • If the connector .jar is installed in openidm/bundle/ (not recommended), the value must be "osgi:service/org.forgerock.openicf.framework.api.osgi.ConnectorManager".
