Before creating and using a Connector in Clarify, please review the following requirements and prerequisites. .
Create a Vault Entry for your API Account Authentication
To create a Connector, you must first store the authorization information in an Authorization Vault, which provides a secure storage location for API keys, tokens, username and passwords, headers, and other info used to authorize calls to external Web Services. In order for a Cloud Connector to work, this vault entry must exist and be configured for the external application you wish to communicate with.
The vault entry can be created from the Admin Console’s Settings | Auth Vault view, or directly from the Cloud Connector wizard (shown below). See Secure Authorization of Web Service Requests using a Clarify Server Vault to learn how to create a vault entry.
