Event collection via MID Server

Configure connector instances to use script instructions that enable the MID Server to connect to external servers to obtain event information. Connector definitions are script instructions that enable the MID Server to connect to external servers to obtain event information.

Use one connector instance for each type of event server that sends events via a MID Server. You can configure connector instances to use the default connector definitions for supported event sources. Alternatively, you can create a custom definition that lets the MID Server run a script for event collection.
