Create a new type of connector


#1

Hi everyone,

I’m trying to create different types of connectors for different applications that don’t have to be directly an http connector, for example I would like to have directly a jdbc or things like that.

How can it be done?

Thx

Hi @Ignacio_Requena_Elvi,

There are some pointers how do that here: https://docs.camunda.org/manual/latest/reference/connect/extending-connect/#custom-connector
Other than that, have a look at the connect sources at https://github.com/camunda/camunda-connect for how the default connectors are implemented.

Cheers,
Thorben

@thorben does creating a custom connector provide any additional benefits over creating a java delegate with field injection or local variables?

Hi Stephen,

I don’t think there is much of a difference.

Cheers,
