Input connectors

GeoEvent Server is capable of receiving event data from virtually any source by using an input connector. An input connector must know how the data is being received, as well as how the data is formatted. These tasks are handled by adapters and transports, which are technical implementations beneath each and every connector.

See Extending GeoEvent Server to learn more about adapters and transports.

Looking for a different connector?

If the connectors available do not provide the flexibility you need, you can customize the connectors using the GeoEvent Manager to develop your own connectors using the GeoEvent Server Software Development Kit (SDK).

See Extending GeoEvent Server to learn more about customizing connectors or developing your own connectors.
