Event collection via MID Server using a pull operation Configure connector instances to use connector definitions (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 enables the MID Server to run a script for event collection. Collect events from external servers using a pull operation The schedule for the pull interval is set in the Schedule field of the connector instance. Users of the external servers must have read permission. However, if the connector instance is also configured to be bi-directional, the external server users must also have write permission. After configuring the connector instance, use the Test connector to verify the connection with the external source. Thereafter, set the connector instance to Active and events start to be received from the external server according to the pull interval schedule. Connector instances Configure connector instances to use script instructions that enable the MID Server to connect to external servers to obtain event information. Each connector instance is specific to an event source vendor. Configure a connector instanceConfigure a connector instance to schedule the frequency of event collection.Create a connector definitionEach connector definition is specific to an event source vendor. The connector definition specifies the MID Server script include that pulls events from the external event source. In addition, the connector definition specifies what connector instance value parameters are needed to connect to the external event source host.Create a custom pull connectorA custom pull connector requires a script, connector definition, and connector instance to retrieve events on behalf of an event source. Connect to external servers with default event connectorsEvent Management provides default connector instances to use connector definitions (script instructions).
