Workspace Receive Connector

Version 21.0.8222

The Workspace Receive Connector performs the singular task of receiving Arc messages transported across different workspaces.


The Workspace Receive Connector ensures that message metadata persists as messages are passed from one workspace to another. Since ArcESB uses message metadata to track files through the flow, this helps ensure that files are logged, monitored, and processed correctly.

This connector has very simple configuration, as each Workspace Receive Connector simply “listens” for files sent by a Workspace Send connector.

Configruation Settings

Settings related to the basic operation of the connector.

  • Connector Id The static name of the connector. All connector-specific files are held in a folder by the same name within the Data Directory.
  • Connector Description An optional field to provide free-form description of the connector and its role in the flow.


Settings related to logs generated by the connector.

  • Log Level The verbosity of logs generated by the connector.
  • Log Subfolder Scheme Instructs the connector to group files in the Logs folder according to the selected interval. For example, the Weekly option instructs the connector to create a new subfolder each week and store all logs for the week in that folder. The blank setting tells the connector to save all logs directly in the Logs folder. For connectors that process many transactions, using subfolders can help keep logs organized and improve performance.
  • Log Messages Whether a copy of the file data itself should be included with the logs.


Settings for specific use cases.

  • Other Settings Allows configuration of hidden connector settings in a semicolon-separated list, like setting1=value1;setting2=value2. Normal connector use cases and functionality should not require use of these settings.
