An output connector is the component of a GeoEvent Service responsible for preparing and sending the processed data to a consumer in an expected format. The output connector must translate its GeoEvents into a format capable of being sent over a particular communication channel. Each output connector is configured to send events to a single specific output. Every GeoEvent Service must include at least one output connector, but a GeoEvent Service may include more than one output connector.
Output connectors are created from connectors listed on the Site > GeoEvent > Connectors page in GeoEvent Manager. By clicking the Add Output button on the Services > Outputs page, an administrator is presented with a list of connectors available for sending event data.
Step-by-step instructions for creating new output connectors can be found in the Introduction to GeoEvent Server tutorial. Access the tutorial from GeoEvent Server tutorials.
