  • Method Details

    • start

      public void start() throws ConnectorCheckedException
      Indicates that the connector is completely configured and can begin processing. This call can be used to register with non-blocking services.
      Specified by:
      start in interface IntegrationConnector
      start in class ConnectorBase
      ConnectorCheckedException - there is a problem within the connector.
    • refresh

      public void refresh() throws ConnectorCheckedException
      Requests that the connector does a comparison of the metadata in the third party technology and open metadata repositories. Refresh is called when the integration connector first starts and then at intervals defined in the connector's configuration as well as any external REST API calls to explicitly refresh the connector. This method performs two sweeps. It first retrieves the topics from the event broker (Kafka) and validates that are in the catalog - adding or updating them if necessary. The second sweep is to ensure that all of the topics catalogued actually exist in the event broker.
      Specified by:
      refresh in interface IntegrationConnector
      ConnectorCheckedException - there is a problem with the connector. It is not able to refresh the metadata.
    • processEvent

      public void processEvent(ITInfrastructureOutTopicEvent event)
      Called each time an event that is published by the IT Infrastructure OMAS, it is looking for Software Server Platforms to add to monitoredPlatforms.
      Specified by:
      processEvent in interface ITInfrastructureEventListener
      event - event object - call getEventType to find out what type of event.

      public void disconnect() throws ConnectorCheckedException
      Shutdown monitoring
      Specified by:
