Secure Data Connectors Overview
Secure data connectors allow data to flow from your on premises or private cloud environments to your RadiantOne SaaS environment. This guide provides an overview of the Secure Data Connectors home screen in Environment Operations Center and its features.
To navigate to the Secure Data Connectors home screen, select Secure Data Connectors ( ) from the left navigation bar.
Secure Data Connector
A secure data connector (SDC) provides a secure channel for TCP-based communication between your cloud-based RadiantOne environments and your on-premise or private cloud data sources. One or more secure data connectors can be deployed in your on-premises network.
Secure data connectors are organized in groups. A group is a logical grouping of one or more secure data connectors that connect to the same set of data sources. By adding more than one secure data connector to a group, you can ensure high availability. Traffic is load-balanced equally to all data connectors that belong to the same group. If one or more secure data connectors within a group fail or become unresponsive, the remaining secure data connectors will automatically ensure connectivity is not interrupted.
Secure Data Connector Home Screen
The Secure Data Connector home screen provides an overview of all your organization's configured data connectors and allows you to manage them.
The list of data connectors is organized by group. Each group has a set of RadiantOne environments that are allowed to use the data connectors belonging to that group. Each group contains a list of data connectors and their associated information (name, description, status). You can expand/collapse each group to show or hide the associated data connectors.
Adding a New Data Connector
Before you can add new data connectors, you must first add a group. This can be done by selecting the New Group button.
After creating a group, you can add a new data connector by clicking the "..." button on the selected group and selecting Add Data Connector from the drop-down menu.
For more details on adding a new data connector, please refer to the Add a Data Connector guide.
Manage Data Connectors
Each data connector has an Options ("...") drop-down menu that allows you to manage the connector. For more details on managing data connectors, please refer to the Manage Data Connectors guide.
View data connector details
A detailed view is available for each data connector and provides additional data connector information, registration status, and connection statuses.
Data connector details can be accessed in two ways. One way is to select the data connector name from the list shown on the Secure Data Connectors screen.
Another way to access data connector details is to select View Details from the Options (...) dropdown menu of the corresponding data connector.
Data connector info
The Data Connector Info section in the data connector detailed view outlines the following information about the connector:
Data Connector Info

The group the connector was assigned to during set up. There are a minimum of two connectors per network environment to enable load balancing.
Additional details about the data connector provided during setup.
The number of on-prem or cloud backend connections made to the data connector.
Indicates if the data connector is "Active", "Paused", "Inactive" or "Unregistered".
All of the on-premise or cloud connections made to the data connector are listed on the data connector details tab. The information listed for each connection includes:
The name of the Env Ops Center environment the connector is associated with.
Data Source Name
The given name of the on-premise or cloud data source connected to the data connector.
The high port where the connection is initiated.
The IP of the on-prem or cloud data source that has been connected.
The port of the on-prem or cloud data source where the connection was made.
Indicates if the connection is "Connected" or "Disconnected".
Last Updated Time
