Designing Service Connectors

Designing Service Connectors

You can use Process Designer 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 that Google provides.
To use these processes and services, perform the following steps:
  1. Create a Service Connector, an object that defines the interaction between Process Designer and the service, so that 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, the step shown in the following image 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:
