The Secure Enterprise Connector (SEC) is a technology used to access on premise services. This is basically a secured tunnel between the RunMyProcess platform and your local network. The SEC is comprised of 3 sections: the Data Connector Agent (SEC Agent), the Protocol Manager and the different adapters.
1 - Data Connector Agent (SEC Agent)
For this tunnel to work, the SEC Agent needs to be up and running in your local network. This agent has been originally developed by Google and is now maintained by Fujitsu RunMyProcess. It establishes a secure (TLS) tunnel between RunMyProcess and your local system.
The SEC Agent can be used to call HTTP requests or send information to the Protocol Manager.
2 - Protocol Manager
The Protocol Manager is used to receive data from the SEC Agent, process the information and call the appropriate adapter. To install, configure and test the Protocol Manager please follow these instructions.
3 - Adapters
An adapter is a java package that connects to the Protocol Manager for in turn connecting to different resources such as files or a database.
The following adapters are available in a single executable:
- File Reader Adapter
- FTP Adapter
- JDBC Adapter
- LDAP Adapter
- SMTP Adapter
In addition, the executable contains a Sample Adapter.
An SAP Adapter is available separately here.
4 - Installing and Configuring the SEC
Now that you know what the Secure Enterprise Connector is, you can follow the Installation Guide and start connecting your local resources to RunMyProcess!
