Connect Reader and Sender Configuration

IFS Connect allows you to develop your own Connect Readers and Senders, but before you install your newly developed connector you have to supply the necessary configuration.


Configuration of Connect Readers and Senders can be managed using the the Setup IFS Connect feature in Solution Manager. Furthermore Connect Senders can make use of additional configuration defined on particular Routing Address. The entire configuration managed by Setup IFS Connect is loaded during the system startup and cached in the memory. Of course, the cache is replaced on any configuration changes.

To be possible to create a node (an instance) in Setup IFS Connect corresponding to your custom Reader or Sender with all the necessary configuration parameters, you have to go through the Custom Connectors page given.
