One of the strengths of Mendix is that it’s easy to connect your Mendix application with other systems. Our App Store is filled with all kinds of connectors and adapters. This how-to presents an overview of some of our connectors.
This how-to will teach you how to do the following:
- Explore the connectors and adapters for useful options
3 KPN LoRa Connector
This module is a connector for the LoRa devices and enables receiving incoming messages through the LoRa network (as it is provided by KPN in the Netherlands).
4 Amazon S3 Connector
This module provides access to Amazon S3 inside of Mendix.
5 Salesforce.com Connector
This module enables building Mendix apps on top of your Salesforce environment in minutes. Get the rapid development and deployment power of Mendix on top of your entire existing Salesforce architecture. This adapter quickly and easily allows you to communicate with standard or custom objects in your company’s Salesforce instance.
This module allows you to use SAML to authenticate your users in your cloud application. The module can communicate with any identity provider that supports SAML2.0 or Shibboleth.
7 Kerberos Single Sign-On
This module enables the Kerberos-based single sign-on feature in your application. This is useful in Windows Active Directory environments, since this protocol supports Integrated Windows Authentication. As a result, users logged on to the Windows domain do not have to enter their credentials to log in to your application.
The LDAP provisioning agent is used to synchronize the users available in your directory server to the Mendix platform using the LDAP protocol.
9 Excel Importer
With this module, you can import all the Excel files you want!
10 Excel Exporter
This module enables creating templates that export data from your Mendix application to Excel or the CSV format. This module creates an OQL query and directly prints the result to a FileDocument in your desired format. Add styling to your Excel to create the proper headers and styling formats for a complete report.
11 Skype Call Widget
Skype URIs enable developers to create innovative mobile, web, and desktop apps that initiate Skype calls and chats. This allows your users to reach their friends, family, and businesses in a convenient yet familiar way. For example, if your mobile app presents a contact list that contains Skype names or phone numbers, your app can use a Skype URI to launch the official Skype client and initiate a call to the selected contact.
This module enables launching a new (or existing) Lync conversation directly from your Mendix app. This is only compatible with Mendix version 5 and above.
13 Google Maps
This module enables bringing the world into your application with the Google Maps widget!
14 IMAP/POP3 incoming email
This module enables your project to retrieve emails from POP3, POP3S, IMAP, and IMAPS servers.
15 MxSMTP Module
This module lets your application run a mail server. It will process any messages it receives and stores these in your application.
16 SFTP Connection
This component enables exchanging FileDocuments with an SFTP server. It allows for files to be sent to a location, for files to be retrieved from a location, and for the file listing of a location (for example, for batch retrieval). Please note that this component works with SFTP (SSH) and not with FTPS (SSL).
17 Simple CSV Exporter
This module is used for exporting to CSV from a microflow.
18 Uber Integration
This module provides integration with Uber’s APIs for logging in, viewing profile data, and estimating trips and prices.
