Creating a REST Connector with Click-to-Connect

With the Click-to-Connect Wizard in Solace PubSub+ Broker Manager you can easily create REST connectors to cloud services like Azure Event Hubs, Azure Service Bus, Azure Functions, Amazon API Gateway, and more.

The Amazon API Gateway connector enables additional Amazon services, such as Simple Notification Service (SNS), Simple Queue Services (SQS) and Lambda. For more information, see PubSub+ and AWS Services Integration on GitHub.

Viewing and Creating Connectors

The Click-to-Connect wizard helps you get set up faster and with less manual intervention. Because the wizard guides you through the connection process, you don't have to know which individual settings and properties you have to configure or in which order. The wizard automatically creates all the REST Delivery Point components (RDP client, REST Consumer, queue, and queue binding). You can find all these components grouped together on the My Connectors page.

After your connector is set up, you can easily find all the information you need to modify or maintain it, even months later.

To view your connectors:

  1. Log in to the Broker Manager.
  2. On the Message VPNs page, click the Message VPN where the connector is configured.
  3. In the Messaging menu, click Connectors. The My Connectors page opens, displaying a list of the configured connectors for that VPN.
  4. From the list of connectors, you can review the settings for each connector, edit and make changes to components, or even delete all of the components (except queues, which may be shared with other connectors).

To set up a connector:

  1. Log in to the Broker Manager.
  2. On the Message VPNs page, click the Message VPN on which you want to configure the connector.
  3. In the Messaging menu, click Connectors. The My Connectors page opens, displaying a list of the configured connectors for that VPN.
  4. Click the Click-to-Connect button to launch the wizard.
  5. Choose the type of event service you want to connect to.
  6. Follow the steps in the wizard to configure authentication, specify the connection details, and set up subscriptions.

    The message Completed! is displayed when the connection is successful.

The new connector appears in the list on the My Connectors page for the Message VPN.
