Import Universal Adapter

ConnectALL allows you to import an adapter configuration that will have all the basic information required by ConnectALL. To import, follow the below procedure.

  1. Click the cogwheel icon on the top right corner of the navigation bar and click Universal Adapters from the drop-down menu.
  2. Click Import Adapters Configuration. The local drives from your computer will be displayed. 
  3. Select the adapter configuration file and click Open. The newly imported adapter configuration will be displayed on the Universal Adapters page. 
  4. Configure all the required fields and click Save Configuration. You will not be able to save the configuration unless you configure all the required fields.

The imported adapter configuration is automatically activated. Use the Configure link displayed against the API Configuration field for further configuration. It is explained here


Note: The error ‘Missing required information to save’ is displayed when trying to import a universal adapter configuration file when there is a mismatch in the datatypes.

If you encounter this message, click OK and proceed. Click the Configure link against ‘Fields’. In the Artifact Edit screen, you will notice that the DATATYPE drop-down fields will display Select Type for some IDs. Select the appropriate data type for the IDs and click Save. The configuration will be successfully saved.


Export Universal Adapter

You can export a universal adapter by using the icon on the top right corner of the adapter descriptor section. Note that the export option allows you to export an API along with its spec. 

           

If you are using ConnectALL version 2.10.9 and above, use the edit and export configuration buttons that are available at the end of an adapter descriptor section. Use the downward arrow displayed on top right side corner of the panel to expand and see the full panel. When you expand, all the descriptor fields along with the edit and export configuration buttons will be displayed.
