Endpoints are the source or destination for Cleo Integration Cloud Data Flows.
Use the Network > Endpoints page to view a list of Endpoints on your system.
For each Endpoint, you can see the following attributes:
- Name of the Endpoint.
- Name of the Access Point on which the Endpoint resides (only valid for File System).
- Creator of the Endpoint.
- Date the Endpoint was last modified.
The Endpoints page includes a Subdomain column in the following cases:
- For AS2, OFTP, and Partner Mailbox Endpoints, if you have more than one subdomain.
- For FTP and SFTP Endpoints, if you have more than one subdomain and Cleo has configured one of them to be associated with a static IP.
Filtering the Endpoint List
You can control what is displayed on the list of Endpoints through filtering available on the left side of the Endpoint List page. When you specify a value for one or more of the filter attributes, the Endpoint list is updated accordingly.
Note: Filters you apply are retained when you leave the Endpoint List page and subsequently return to it.
As you type in any of the filter fields (except the Endpoint Type field, where you must choose a value), CIC displays any values that match the string you type and you can select the value you want at that point.
Entries in drop-down menus are restricted to the values available on the page. For example, if you select a name from the Access Point menu, only Endpoints of the type File System will be available from the Endpoint Type menu because only File System Endpoints have Access Points associated with them.
Filters currently applied are displayed at the top of the list. You can click the X on any of these to remove a single filter or you can click Clear All to remove all filters.
You can click the Hide/Unhide button to toggle the Filter by panel.
Creating an Endpoint
- On the Endpoints page, click the Add Endpoint button.
The New Endpoint page displays.
- Enter a name for your Endpoint and select an Endpoint type.
- Enter attribute values.
Endpoint attributes vary depending on type. Click an Endpoint type below to read about its attributes:|
- File System
- Partner Mailbox
- API Consumer and Provider
Note: The following Endpoint types are visible on the Endpoint page, but are not editable from CIC Cockpit. Click to read more about them.
- When you finish specifying attribute values, click Save.
On the Network > Endpoints page, click an existing Endpoint to display the Endpoint Edit page, where you can edit the Endpoint's attributes.
Endpoint attributes vary depending on Endpoint type. Click an Endpoint type below to read about its attributes.
Endpoints are enabled by default. In rare instances, it might be necessary to disable one, for example, during migration from a hybrid on-prem/cloud configuration.
Note: Be careful when you disable Endpoints. Data Flows that use disabled Endpoints are also disabled and Jobs involving disabled Endpoints will not run.
You can enable or disable Endpoints one at a time using the Enable button on the Endpoint Edit page.
Alternatively, you can enable or disable multiple Endpoints by going to the Network > Endpoints page, selecting some Endpoints, and clicking the Enable button.
Browsing an Endpoint
For File System, FTP, SFTP, S3, and Partner Mailbox Endpoints, CIC Cockpit supports directory browsing from the Endpoint Edit page. In addition to being an easy way to navigate to a directory on the Endpoint, this is also an easy way to ensure you can connect to your Endpoints.
- The Browse Endpoint button becomes enabled only when values have been provided for all required fields.
- Endpoint browsing for a Partner Mailbox Endpoint is only available after it has been saved.
- On the Edit Endpoint page, click the Browse Endpoint button to display a dialog box containing a directory listing.
For File System Endpoints, click the Connect button to display a directory listing.
- Click the folders to navigate through the Endpoint.
Note: You can still click the pencil tool and manually specify a path. The ability to browse by clicking on a folder provides a way to see the contents of an Endpoint without having to know about an exact path.
Defining the Event in Transformation Endpoints
Configure the Transformation Endpoint to include an Event (the object created in CIC Studio), which provides the means by which data can be brought into the Integration Server for further transformation using your Data Flow.
To do this, simply set an Event (and related Business Process) from within the CIC Cockpit as part of Data Flow creation (with a Transformation Endpoint), shown below. Any deployed Event in your workspace will be available for selection as you build the Data Flow.
