Editing, disabling, and deleting connectors

As an automation engineer, you can view the list of available connectors, configure cloud and on-premises connectors, and generate plugin keys required for the on-premises connectors by using the Connectors page. 

Important

Starting from 22.2, cloud connectors for some of the supported applications will be disabled until further notice. Delete the existing cloud connectors, and configure the on-premises connectors to connect with the applications.

Before disabling a connector, learn about the impact on the automation policies: 

  • Published policies that use the connector go into a Disabled state.
  • Disabled policies do not run or appear as an automation action for events.
  • Even if one action in a policy uses the disabled connector, the policy is disabled. 
  • Policies in a draft state are not disabled, but cannot be published. 
  • Disabled connectors are not displayed while creating new policies. 
  • Disabled connectors can be edited and deleted. 

To disable a connector, go to Connectors > Configured Connectors, and do the following steps:

  1. Click  against the connector that you want to enable and select Disable.
