Introduction

Incoming configurations define how data should be retrieved from an (external) source. Examples of such sources are (s)FTP directories, REST APIs, and databases. Incoming configurations can be reused for multiple integrations. To do so, you can select the same incoming configuration within multiple route configurations. Data will only be retrieved once and duplicated for each route configuration.


Incoming configurations can be created and maintained by navigating to Connections -> Incoming.


Creating and maintaining incoming configurations

Possible configuration fields:

  • Name -  A name describing the connectivity this configuration enables, i.e. Retrieve Magento Orders
  • Identifier - A unique identifier for this incoming configuration (this field is automatically generated based on the name).
  • Description - Detailed description for the incoming configuration.
  • Disabled - A flag that indicates whether the incoming configuration is disabled. Disabled incoming configurations do not retrieve new data.
  • Subscriber - The subscriber is the technical component performing the communication with the (external) source.
  • Entity transformers - The transformers which should be executed on the data flowing through this integration.

Monitoring incoming configurations

To review all logs created by an incoming configuration you can navigate to the Logs tab. This allows you to review all past logging created by the selected incoming configuration.
