ReadyWorks Connectors allow you to connect to your data sources and synchronize your data into the ETL where you can then aggregate your data sources into a consolidated view in ReadyWorks. The following sections detail the functionality of Connectors.

Key Concepts

Connectors A collection of authentication methods, fields, job fields, and job templates that when instantiated as connections are used to interact with APIs or data sources
Authentication Methods A collection of fields (e.g., username, password, source server, source server port) and authentication scripts that a connector uses to authentication with APIs or data sources
Fields Attributes (e.g., username, password, source server, source server port) associated with authentication methods
Job Fields Attributes (e.g., job description, job schedule, data selection, destination table) associated with job templates
Job Templates A collection of job fields with defined configuration settings that are used to perform specific operations with APIs or data sources (e.g., pull the Users table from SCCM)
Connections Instantiation of connectors that are used to interact with APIs or data sources
Jobs Instantiation of job templates (that have the specific data modified slightly or even completely customized) that are used to perform specific operations with APIs or data sources (e.g., pull the Users table from SCCM)
Job Schedules Available schedules (e.g., daily, weekly, monthly) for executing jobs at a designated frequency
