This section introduces you to the Adeptia Connect terminology. Once you become familiar with these terms and concepts, you will feel comfortable navigating through the explanations, examples, and other features of Adeptia Connect. The following table lists the key terms:
Adeptia Connect Connection is a configurable service which enables the exchange of data between two cloud based applications (Apps). It establishes a secure (https) communication link between sender and receiver of the data. If source and target applications are used within the same company, then connection can be used independently (without the need for a Shared Connection). For example, if you want to send data from SalesForce to QuickBooks, you need to create a connection (say connection1).The same connection cannot be used to send data from QuickBooks to Salesforce. For this, you must create another connection, say Connection2.
There are two ways to create a Connections:
- Connection between two Apps
- Connection between Companies
For more details, see Connections.
Adeptia Connect Shared Connection is a configurable service that you can publish so that other companies can use for exchanging data with your company. When you create a Shared Connection, it acts as an instrument that sets the format in which you want the data to be sent or received. Through this you also specify the location from where you want the data to be sent or received.
You can create a Shared Connection for either sending data or receiving data.
