Renaming a Business Adapter

You can name (or rename) a business adapter at any time during the development process.

The starting conditions, and the UI presentation, vary:
  • In disconnected mode (when the business adapter operates on an inventory beacon), you gave the business adapter a name as you created it. This adapter name is shown as the top-most node in the structure tree on the left.
  • In connected mode (when the business adapter is running on your operations server in an on-premises implementation), the business adapter received a default name as you created it. The adapter name is the second level of the structure tree. Consider renaming this as you start your editing process.

As the adapter name will be referenced by the Business Importer, you should ensure it has a useful name that will assist future maintenance.

To rename a business adapter:

  1. In the structure tree on the left side of the user interface for Business Adapter Studio, locate the node for this business adapter (see comments above).
  2. Right-click that business adapter node.
  3. From the context menu, select Rename.
  4. Overtype the current name with your preferred name for the adapter, finishing with the Enter key.
    Your change is saved in memory until you choose to save the adapter.
