Connector data types

Connector data types

When you submit a request for connector metadata, data type is included in the response. Data types for connector attributes are returned in REST API responses using a numeric value.
The following example shows a response with the type value of 2:
{ "name": "database", "label": "", "id": "", "value": "", "type": 2, "isMandatory": true, "visible": false, "list": [] },
The type value of 2 means the database attribute can only contain alphabetic characters.
The following table lists the numeric values that might be included in the response and the corresponding data type:
