Configuring connectors

As a tenant administrator, you must configure the out-of-the-box and custom connectors before you, other administrators, or end users can use these connectors for creating flows in BMC Helix Integration Studio.

You must create connector configurations, set accounts, and set permissions, so that the connectors can communicate with the third-party systems.

Example use case

Your company wants to integrate an application with a third-party service, such as a project repository provided by JIRA. By using BMC Helix Connector Designer, a developer creates JIRA connector that integrates an application with JIRA services.

The tenant administrator then adds a JIRA connector configuration called JIRA production in BMC Helix Integration Studio that provides the production instance details for JIRA. The tenant administrator also adds a connector account called JIRA user.

When a business analyst uses the JIRA connector to build a process or a rule in BMC Helix Innovation Studio, the connector configurations are available as connector properties. The business analyst can build a process or a rule for an application by selecting the JIRA production configuration and the JIRA user account for the JIRA connector.
