Application Connections
The following are the application type of connections:
Native API Connections
Batch Response File
Native API Connections
For some connectors, a third-party API is needed to make a connection. If the full API has been compiled in the connector, nothing further is required. With certain APIs, however, you must install a client on the integration platform and a server (typically a SQL engine) must be reachable for the connection to be established before you can work with a map or process.
Batch Response File
Batch response files are generated by connectors that have the BatchResponse property. These will be the SaaS connectors (Salesforce, SalesLogix, MSCRM, etc.) as well as the DMS connectors (which includes some SaaS, but also non-SaaS connectors).
A batch response file contains a group of entries for each target object in a batch operation. Each action in the operation generates a batch response entry. These entries often provide detailed information that can you use for troubleshooting.
The batch response file is XML-based and enables other XML components to read and process it. You may use batch response files in process steps and their response information in message objects and files. The URI for a response file supports macros, so you can configure the file independently of the process.
The standard batch response schema for update actions contains information shown in the following tables.
