Designing Service Connectors

Process Designer allows you to interact with programs and services that are in
Data Integration
, inside your firewall, or anywhere in the cloud, as long as they have an API. For example, Google provides many APIs to access the services they provide.
To use these processes and services:
  1. Create a Service Connector, an object that defines the interaction between Process Designer and the service, so the connector can send and receive data.
  2. Define a connection that a
    process
    can use to access the service.
  3. Add a
    Service
    step to the
    process
    where you want to use the service.
For example, this step uses the Get Vehicle Detail action to obtain information from Edmunds:
The services you enable using a service connector are accessible from processes.
The following image shows the process you go through to create a service connector:
This diagram shows that you can create a service connector by creating a new connector, by importing a file, or by downloading a service connector from GitHub.
