Modular components to retrieve data from different data sources, such as BMC Remedy or Microsoft Exchange.


All adapters have a core set of properties that they must support in the configuration file.  Please see the adapter configuration page for details about these properties.  In addition to these core properties, adapters may have additional properties they must support.

Any additional properties should be documented on the adapter's documentation page.


Adapter Configuration

The following properties are required for all adapters.


Property Description

Any alpha-numeric value is acceptable, but should indicate the type of adapter.

Example: "ars", "exchange", "sharepoint", etc...


The value of the main adapter class file.  This will be a unique value specific to the adapter.

Example: "com.kineticdata.schedule.adapter.ars.ArsAdapter"


Example Adapters Configuration File

Below is an example adapter configuration file that tells Kinetic Schedule one adapter is installed in the system.  The name assigned to the adapter is "ars", and the class that should be loaded for this adapter is "com.kineticdata.schedule.adapter.ars.ArsAdapter".


    "adaptersConfig": {
        "adapters": [
                "name": "ars",
                "className": "com.kineticdata.schedule.adapter.ars.ArsAdapter"


Connection Configuration

The following properties are required for all connections, regardless of what type of adapter is used.  If the value for that property is not used by the adapter, the property must still exist in the configuration file.  The value for the property should be set to the blank string ("") if it is not used.


Property Description

The name of the connection that will be used in data source configuration files that use this connection.  Should be a name that correlates the adapter and server.

Example: "ars-server"


The value that was entered as the "name" property for the adapter in the adapters configuration file.

Example: "ars", "exchange", "sharepoint", etc...


A description of the connection.  This is not seen by the end users, it is simply a way to describe what server or system this connection interacts with.

Example: "Remedy server"


The name or IP address of the server or system to connect with.

Example: ""


The name of the proxy user used to login to the end point system.

Example: "username"


The password that corresponds to the proxy user.  This value can be entered as plain-text or encrypted with the Password Encryption form.

Example: "password"


Indicates if the password is stored in plain-text or encrypted form.

"true" if encrypted, "false" if plain-text
