SOLVED

Custom source and destination connector

Avatar

Level 1

Hi All,

 

Can someone point me to the documentation for building a custom source and destination connector?

Additionally, how does one go about publishing the connector to AEP catalog for others to use?

 

Thank you

I think both of these are possible, we have worked on using the Source connector API to build a custom solution for one of our data sources. Here's more info for both 

1.) Sources connector: Build custom connections from your data sources into AEP. 

https://developer.adobe.com/experience-platform-apis/references/flow-service/

 

2.) Destinations SDK should help you build that connector. 

The Destination SDK documentation provides instructions for you to use the Adobe Experience Platform Destination SDK to configure, test and release a productized destination integration with Adobe Experience Platform, and have your destination become part of the ever-growing destinations catalog

Hi @rafAdobe , presently only out of the box connectors are available to use. Not sure on destination but No way to build your own custom source connector. However very soon AEP will have this feature [Self Source Connector Framework] so that one can build and publish their own connector. Post release we should be having documentation too.

Thank you for the information Atul. Are you able to share date for the release?

Thank you Anil.

 

So if I understand correctly - for publishing a custom source connector to AEP's Sources catalog, we need to wait for AEP's Self Source Connector Framework release (as per Atul's reply). But publishing a custom destinations connector to destinations catalog is already supported.

have not heard about source connector framework yet, but yes the destination connector SDK is available today.
