Reusable Templates And Macros For Actian’s Hybrid Integration Manager

It’s a pretty exciting time to be a User Experience Designer here at Actian! We are working on some great new features for Hybrid Integration Manager and I wanted to share with you two features that really promote reusability. Reusability is a reoccurring theme that we have heard from you, our customers, that we wanted to address.

  1. Templates represent a reusable configuration. Start by creating a new Template with the DataConnect package details then create associated Configurations. The Configurations inherit values from the Template so you can simply execute the Configuration or choose to override specific details making a Configuration fully customizable. By using Templates as a best practice, it makes managing multiple Configurations simpler.

  2. Macros represent a Macro Management repository that you can store and reuse macros within any Template or Configuration providing configurable inputs to the integrations without code changes.


These features are available now so give them a try! We would love to hear your feedback!
