[Weekly Tip] Running Connectors in Multiple Envornments

hello all!!

in this week’s tip of the week we wanted to share how you can set up multiple environments for your connectors. while this is a slightly more advanced feature, it is a really useful to ensure the Connector Functions are working as intended with non-production data while you’re building and testing. you can easily use different endpoints, or use different authentication details, for up to 3 environments.

here’s how to set it up:

  1. create a new Connector (or open an existing one) and select the number of connections you’d like. by default, this is set to one:
  2. for each of the environments, define the endpoint, port, headers and certs you’d like to use:
  3. once that’s set up, you can run your Connector Functions from your Apps. depending on whether you’re running your apps from a not published Version, a Published Version or an Approved Version, the corresponding Connection will be used as such:

Production: not-published
Testing: published
Development: approved (if this feature is enabled)
