A connector provides the ability to synchronise software asset metadata between external systems and Aplas. While it is also possible to accomplish the same result via our API, connectors provide a no-code configuration-based system. We recommend you consider a pre-built connector before custom coding via our API.
There are two types of connector, inbound and outbound. Both use a queuing system to reliably deliver messages to and from Aplas while reporting issues as they occur.
