About Axway Messaging connectors

Before you create an XMS-type Decision Rule or XMS-type Rule Table, you need to create an Axway Messaging connector in the GUI. You can create either an IN connector or an OUT connector, as described in the sections below.

After you create a connector, it is visible as a node in the left pane Directory tree structure of the Gateway main window, under the Event Management node. The connector is listed under either the XMS Connector In or XMS Connector Out sub-node.

Creating an Axway Messaging IN connector

To create a new Axway Messaging IN connector:

  1. In the left pane of the GUI main window, click to expand the Event Management node.
    Gateway expands the node to display the following sub-nodes:
    • Scheduling
    • Directory Scanning
    • Transfer Change State
    • XMS
    Each sub-node represents a Decision Rule / Rule Table category.
  2. Click to expand the XMS sub-node.
  3. Right-click ConnectorIn, then select New from the context menu.
    Gateway displays the XMS Connector In window.
  4. Complete the fields of the XMS Connector In window using the information in the following table.
  5. Click OK to confirm the data you have entered.
    Gateway:
    • closes the XMS Connector In window
    • creates the connector
    • displays a new entry in the Directory tree structure with the assigned connector name
    • displays a new line entry in the Connector In list in the main window
