The Clarify connector is used to integrate inbound and outbound file transfers directly with Cleo Clarify. The inbox and outbox of each Cleo Harmony host to be integrated with Clarify must point to an instance of this connector.
Only one Clarify connector is needed for an integration with a Cleo Clarify cluster. Consider giving the Clarify connector a meaningful name such as `Prod', 'Test', 'Dev', and so on. To make it easier to configure the inbox and outbox for each Cleo Harmony host, consider adding Custom Directory Variables such as
clarify:Prod/%host%/toclarify. In this way, the user can select
clarify:Prod/%host%/toclarify as the host inbox and
clarify:Prod/%host%/fromclarify as the host outbox from the Inbox and Outbox pull-down menus, respectively.
When an integrated host receives an inbound file, Cleo Harmony attempts to connect to the first server in the Clarify connector's list of servers. If the server is not available, Cleo Harmony tries each subsequent Clarify server in the list until a connection is established or the list of servers is exhausted. If the list of Clarify servers is exhausted, the transfer fails. When a connection has been established, the data is streamed to the Clarify server on the port specified. This port is configured in Clarify in the Harmony Monitor object. For more information on how the data is processed when Clarify's Harmony Monitor receives it, see the Cleo Clarify User Guide.
For outbound dataflow, the SendMessageToHarmony business process task in Cleo Clarify takes a Cleo Harmony host alias as an argument. The integrated host's
<send> action can then be scheduled to run automatically either by polling Clarify or periodically. For more information on how to send data from Clarify to a particular Harmony host, see the Cleo Clarify User Guide.
Note: The Clarify connector only supports the AS2, FTP, and SFTP protocols to the extent that Cleo Dashboards will associate the file flow between Cleo Harmony and Cleo Clarify.
Clarify Connector Properties
Each instance of the Clarify Connector can be configured using the following settings:
|A semicolon separated 1st of the Qeo Clarify server addresses.
|The number of times the command should be retried when an error or exception occurs.
Valid range: [0-5].
|Store And Forward
|A switch that indicates controls or not to store the contents locally when the connector endpoint is down and subsequently forward to the connector endpoint when it is back up.
Note: For this feature to work, the Receivedbox must be configured in the host using this Connector and Adminstration>Other>Dsable Date/Time Portion Of Filenames Sent/Recieved Box must be unchecked.
|Store And Forward Retry Delay (seconds)
|The number of seconds to wait between 'Store And Forward' retries.
Vaid range: [0-900].
|A switch that indicates whether to perform debug logging.
|System Scheme Name
|The URI scheme name used as a shortcut to this host.
