A connector is a configuration that defines how an app can read and write to an external data store through the functions defined by that connector. Only users with the connector admin role can create, edit and delete connectors. Tulip supports two types of data sources for connectors:
Because connectors connect Tulip to outside data sources, it is important that users are able to set up multiple Connector Environments based on the publication lifecycle of the app version implementing a given connector. For example, if the app writes to the data source, a user would want the development version of an app to connect to a different database than the published version of the app. If the connector only implements read only functions, the connection might be the same for development and production versions. Tulip allows for 3 different ways to configure environments for a connector:
|The name of the connector. Usually this will be the name of the data source the connector is connecting to.
|An optional blurb of text telling other users the intended use or other key info about the connector.
|An optional image representing the connector
|HTTP or SQL
|A boolean that determines whether the connector function is active or deactivated

|Allow integration of simple IIoT end-points for data input and capture
|Allow integration of advanced IIoT end-points for interaction with equipment and collaboration with devices
|Ability to retrieve, examine, and view batch/lot and material attributes used in the processing step (e.g. potency), from external source.
|Ability to receive production order from a system of record with associated material list
|All material tracking history will include context of material hierarchy levels
|Ability to track material association to work order and production order at all levels of material tracking hierarchy
|Ability to track material consumption and use at all levels of the material tracking hierarchy.
|Ability to track and maintain forward and backwards batch/lot and material genealogy at all level of the material tracking hierarchy. Ie view, analyse and query material genealogy
|Ability to track material inventory and its physical location.
|Ability to track material movement history. Ie. path of material in the production process
|Ability to track materials associations using the material tracking model. Ie. track physical material in tray location, trays in batches (Cohorts).
|Ability to track materials handled in load-carriers.
|Ability to track loading of material to a load-carrier and its location within the load carrier. Ie. material in a well, plate, flask, tank, tote, etc.
|Ability to track unloading of material from a load-carrier
|Ability to track and list materials for a work order for reconciliation.
|Ability to manage and track material consumption as part of a process step. Material consumption may include processing, weighing, dispensing, etc.
|Ability to consume by pre-configured unit of measure (UoM) quantities such as weight, volume, etc.
|Ability to adjust batch/lot and material quantities related to sample plan execution
|Ability to retrieve information from external a system of record so that Apps can get the required information for execution fo a specific process step.
|When an individual executes a series of signings during a single, continuous period of controlled system access, the first signing shall be executed using all electronic signature components; subsequent signings shall be executed using at least one electronic signature component that is only executable by, and designed to be used only by, the individual.
|Ability to print configured labels for sample materials
