Adapters are used to interact with external systems. Each actor adapter is configured in Grid Manager. When you are creating a process with the BMC Atrium Orchestrator Development Studio application, you add adapters to the process using a Call Adapter activity. The Call Adapter activity executes an adapter request and, when available, assigns the adapter's response to a context item for use in subsequent activities. The format of the request and response is specific to the adapter being called.

The Property Panel for a Call Adapter activity consists of three tabs: Properties, Logging, and Metadata. The Logging and Metadata tabs follow the standard layout and principles. There are two options for designating the Adapter you want to use: Static Value (you specify the name of the adapter on the grid) and Context Key (the name of the adapter is provided by a context item).

To use a static value as an adapter data source

  1. On the BMC Atrium Orchestrator Development Studio process canvas, double-click the Call Adapter activity.
  2. In the properties panel of the Call Adapter activity, click the Static Value option for the Adapter Data Source.

    To use a context key as an adapter data source

    1. On the BMC Atrium Orchestrator Development Studio process canvas, double-click the Call Adapter activity.
    2. In the properties panel of the Call Adapter activity, click the Context Key option for the adapter data source.
