HubSpot connector

The HubSpot connector lets you synchronize HubSpot contacts and companies with managed objects in an IDM repository.

This topic describes how to install and configure the HubSpot connector, and how to perform basic tests to ensure that it’s running correctly.

For a complete example that includes the configuration required to synchronize users with this connector, refer to Synchronize data between IDM and HubSpot.

Before you configure the HubSpot connector, you must have a client app in HubSpot, with the corresponding clientID, clientSecret and refreshToken.

Install the HubSpot connector

You can download any connector from Backstage, but some come bundled with Identity Cloud, IDM, or RCS by default. When using a bundled connector, you can skip installing it and move directly to configuration.

Connector Identity Cloud IDM RCS

No

No

No

Download the connector .jar file from Backstage.

  • If you are running the connector locally, place it in the /path/to/openidm/connectors directory, for example:

    mv ~/Downloads/hubspot-connector-1.5.20.18.jar /path/to/openidm/connectors/
  • If you are using a remote connector server (RCS), place it in the /path/to/openicf/connectors directory on the RCS.

Configure the HubSpot connector

Create a connector configuration using the IDM admin UI:

  1. From the navigation bar, click Configure > Connectors.

  2. On the Connectors page, click New Connector.

  3. On the New Connector page, type a Connector Name.

  4. From the Connector Type drop-down list, select HubSpot Connector - 1.5.20.18.

  5. Complete the Base Connector Details.

    For a list of all configuration properties, refer to HubSpot Connector Configuration
  6. Click Save.

When your connector is configured correctly, the connector displays as Active in the admin UI.

Refer to this procedure to create a connector configuration over REST.

Alternatively, configure the connector with a configuration file. IDM provides a sample connector configuration file in the /path/to/openidm/samples/example-configurations/provisioners directory. Copy this sample file (provisioner.openicf-hubspot.json) to your project’s conf directory.

Adjust the configurationProperties to match your HubSpot application details. You must provide a clientId, clientSecret, and refreshToken. Other properties are optional:

"configurationProperties" : {
    "clientId" : "daa533ae-xxxx-xxxx-xxxx-6e66d84e6448",
    "clientSecret" : "c598a365-xxxx-xxxx-xxxx-24b32b6ae04d",
    "refreshToken" : "f37e1132-xxxx-xxxx-xxxx-4b9e724ce4a0",
    "acceptSelfSignedCertificates" : true,
    "readSchema" : "true",
    "disableHostNameVerifier" : false,
    "maximumConnections" : "10",
    "permitsPerSecond" : "10",
    "httpProxyHost" : null,
    "httpProxyPort" : null
}

IDM encrypts the clientSecret and refreshToken as soon as the connector is enabled.

Test the HubSpot connector

Test that the configuration is correct by running the following command:

curl \
--header "X-OpenIDM-Username: openidm-admin" \
--header "X-OpenIDM-Password: openidm-admin" \
--header "Accept-API-Version: resource=1.0" \
--request POST \
"http://localhost:8080/openidm/system?_action=test"
[
  {
    "name": "hubspot",
    "enabled": true,
    "config": "config/provisioner.openicf/hubspot",
    "connectorRef": {
      "bundleVersion": "[1.5.0.0,1.6.0.0)",
      "bundleName": "org.forgerock.openicf.connectors.hubspot-connector",
      "connectorName": "org.forgerock.openicf.connectors.hubspot.HubspotConnector"
    },
    "displayName": "Hubspot Connector",
    "objectTypes": [
      "company",
      "contactProperties",
      "__ALL__",
      "companyProperties",
      "contact"
    ],
    "ok": true
  }
]

A status of "ok": true indicates that the connector can connect to HubSpot.

HubSpot remote connector

If you want to run this connector outside of Identity Cloud or IDM, you can configure the HubSpot connector as a remote connector. Java Connectors installed remotely on a Java Connector Server function identically to those bundled locally within Identity Cloud or installed locally on IDM.

You can download the HubSpot connector from here.

Refer to Remote connectors for configuring the HubSpot remote connector.

Implementation specifics

For PATCH requests, a connector can potentially add, remove, or replace an attribute value. The HubSpot connector does not implement the add or remove operations, so a PATCH request always replaces the entire attribute value with the new value.

Using the HubSpot connector With a proxy server

If the IDM server is hosted behind a firewall and requests to the resource provider are routed through a proxy, you must specify the proxy host and port in the connector configuration.

To specify the proxy server details, set the httpProxyHost, and httpProxyPort properties in the connector configuration. For example:

"configurationProperties": {
    ...
    "httpProxyHost": "myproxy.home.com",
    "httpProxyPort": 8080,
    ...
}

OpenICF Interfaces Implemented by the Hubspot Connector

The Hubspot Connector implements the following OpenICF interfaces. For additional details, see ICF interfaces:

Create

Creates an object and its uid.

Delete

Deletes an object, referenced by its uid.

Schema

Describes the object types, operations, and options that the connector supports.

Script on Connector

Enables an application to run a script in the context of the connector.

Any script that runs on the connector has the following characteristics:

  • The script runs in the same execution environment as the connector and has access to all the classes to which the connector has access.

  • The script has access to a connector variable that is equivalent to an initialized instance of the connector. At a minimum, the script can access the connector configuration.

  • The script has access to any script arguments passed in by the application.

Search

Searches the target resource for all objects that match the specified object class and filter.

Test

Tests the connector configuration.

Testing a configuration checks all elements of the environment that are referred to by the configuration are available. For example, the connector might make a physical connection to a host that is specified in the configuration to verify that it exists and that the credentials that are specified in the configuration are valid.

This operation might need to connect to a resource, and, as such, might take some time. Do not invoke this operation too often, such as before every provisioning operation. The test operation is not intended to check that the connector is alive (that is, that its physical connection to the resource has not timed out).

You can invoke the test operation before a connector configuration has been validated.

Update

Updates (modifies or replaces) objects on a target resource.
