Understanding Connect

ON THIS PAGE

A Contract represents a subscription to the platform. The Contract Owner or Administrator can manage key elements of the contract:

  • A workspace is a smaller enclosed environment that contains integration flows and credentials. Generally a workspace reflects an environment such as a staging or production environment.

  • A member is a registered platform user that has been invited to the contract in a specific role. Only Contract Owners can add new members.

Workspaces

A workspace is an enclosed environment that contains integration flows and credentials. A contract can have multiple workspaces. Each workspace is virtually separated from other workspaces within a contract.

A workspace usually reflects an environment such as a staging or production environment. Similar integration flows can exist within different spaces, using different credentials. This enables new and updated workflows to be tested thoroughly in a staging environment before being moved to production.

A workspace includes members, integration flows, and credentials

  • Any member of the contract can create a workspace. The workspace owner has full access to manage that workspace including giving platform users appropriate levels of access.

  • The core function of a workspace is to build and test integration flows. An integration flow is a set of integration components and credentials used to synchronize data between multiple applications or services.

  • Credentials are used to authorise different systems to connect with each other. Integration flows can only be used with the appropriate credentials.
