Using Connection Management

Connection management is a way for a Cloud Connector to interact with an external entity to authorize a series of actions. The external entity requires a username and password on first connection, then returns an access token for the connector to use for subsequent interactions. The connector preserves the access token between calls. Mule DevKit supports retrying unsuccessful connections and refreshing access tokens.

Reconnection Strategies

Configuring Reconnection Strategies provides a detailed description of how to specify parameters for retrying unsuccessful operations. In Mule DevKit 3.3, any connector using connection management can use these techniques.
