Common connector target processes


A process uses actions to implement the business logic for a given business case that can be triggered by rules. Connector processes defined in BMC Helix Innovation Suite call specific vendor actions to perform different business functionality. The connector processes are associated with Connector Targets that provide the connection information required by the process to connect to the vendor service.

Connector Target configuration includes the configuration and account details of the connector. The connector details are available in BMC Helix Integration Service.

To configure Connector Targets

BMC preconfigures the out-of-the-box connector targets for all BMC Helix Multi-Cloud Broker features. If you want to update the connector configuration or account information, update the connector target for the feature.


Do not delete the out-of-the-box connector targets.

  1. To navigate to BMC Helix Innovation Suite, in the Configuration Links page, click Configure Connector Targets in Innovation Studio under Required Common Configurations.
    You need to configure the connector targets listed for each feature on the Configuration Links page, in addition to the ones listed under Required Common Configuration.
  2. Click the connector target you want to configure or click to configure a new connector target.
  3. Enter or update the following values and save the configuration.
