TIBCO Mashery Connectors

Why Connectors

Connectors are TIBCO Cloud Mashery's integration features that have been developed and provided ready to use for Cloud customers. Connectors not only provide connectivity to the external systems but also allow you to change the behavior of the API at runtime through configuration without writing any code. A Connector's policies can be applied for pre-processing of user client request as well as for post processing on backend response to change API behavior. Connectors have been carefully envisioned to address common and evolving business use-cases for customers. Connectors power compelling features such as HTTP header manipulation, authentication & security (also using third-party IDP), filtering & routing, caching & validation as well as content transformation.

  • It complements TIBCO Cloud Mashery product core functionality and fills gap for commonly-sought functionality that are not yet available out-of-box.
  • It can be used across multiple TIBCO Cloud Mashery customers who need similar functionality.
  • Further enhances TIBCO Mashery's competitive edge and relevancy to the customers/markets' continuously-evolving business needs.
