SAP SuccessFactors Connector Reference

Configuration

Parameters

Name Type Description Default Value Required

Name

String

The name for this configuration. Connectors reference the configuration with this name.

x

Connection

The connection types that can be provided to this configuration.

x

Expiration Policy

Configures the minimum amount of time that a dynamic configuration instance can remain idle before the runtime considers it eligible for expiration. This does not mean that the platform expires the instance at the exact moment that it becomes eligible. The runtime only purges instances as needed.

Basic Authentication Connection Type

Parameters

Name Type Description Default Value Required

Proxy Configuration

One of:

Data Center’s EndPoint URL

String

Data Center’s EndPoint URL

Use Persistent Connections

Boolean

If false, each connection will be closed after the first request is completed.

true

Max Connections

Number

The maximum number of outbound connections to keep open at the same time. By default the number of connections is unlimited.

-1

Connection Idle Timeout

Number

The number of milliseconds that a connection can remain idle before it is closed. The value of this attribute is only used when persistent connections are enabled.

30000

Stream Response

Boolean

Whether or not received responses should be streamed, meaning processing will continue as soon as all headers are parsed and the body streamed as it arrives. When enabled, the response MUST be eventually read since depending on the configured buffer size it may not fit into memory and processing stops until space is available.

Number

The space in bytes for the buffer where the HTTP response is stored.

Repeatable In Memory Iterable

Field Type Description Default Value Required

Initial Buffer Size

Number

This is the amount of instances to initially allow to be kept in memory to consume the stream and provide random access to it. If the stream contains more data than can fit into this buffer, then the buffer expands according to the bufferSizeIncrement attribute, with an upper limit of maxInMemorySize. Default value is 100 instances.

Buffer Size Increment

Number

This is by how much the buffer size expands if it exceeds its initial size. Setting a value of zero or lower means that the buffer should not expand and that to raise a STREAM_MAXIMUM_SIZE_EXCEEDED error when the buffer gets full. Default value is 100 instances.

Max Buffer Size

Number

This is the maximum amount of memory to use. If more than that is used then raise a STREAM_MAXIMUM_SIZE_EXCEEDED error. A value lower or equal to zero means no limit.

Repeatable File Store Iterable

Field Type Description Default Value Required

Max In Memory Size

Number

This is the maximum amount of instances to keep in memory. If more than that is required, then it starts to buffer the content on disk.
