Use of Connector PackThis chapter contains a general guide to activate Connector
The Connector Packs use XSLT to convert data and to perform/apply
business logic. Modifying XSLT enables building custom transformations to any
desired format. The Converter Components of OpenSyncro makes
it possible to convert other formats to XML, for example by using ASCIItoXML
or CSVtoXML converters.
Usually it takes 3-4 working days to configure
and test data transfers depending on complexity of interfaces and transferred
Activation of different Connector Packs involves different
The following general tasks are usually needed:
Setting up source and destination systemsThe first step is usually to synchronize the values of both systems. It
may contain setting up parameters like product properties, customer groups,
shipping methods, payment methods, prices, VAT codes and so on.
step is to make the ends recognize that information. So mapping is needed. It
connects parameters with different names.
The third step is to set up
locations and destinations of different protocols like FTP, HTTP and JDBC.
Also special conditions can be defined, for example what happens if product
group is unknown.
Setting up OpenSyncro PipesFirst step to do is to create new OpenSyncro Pipes (see: Pipe list ).
Second step is to
set the configurations of Pipes and test the integration proses (see: Pipe editor and Transfer log ).
step is to build up automation by setting up a schedule of Pipes to
import/export data (see: Pipe
