Workspace Send Connector

Version 21.0.8222

The Workspace Send Connector performs the singular task of transporting Arc messages across different workspaces.


The Workspace Send 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 Send Connector is paired with exactly one Workspace Receive Connector. Primary configuration is simply a matter of setting the appropriate Workspace and the name of the Workspace Receive Connector within that Workspace.

Connector Configuration

This section contains all of the configurable connector properties.

Settings Tab

Configuration 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 the Workspace destination where files will end up.

  • Workspace Id The Workspace to send messages to.
  • Connector Id The name of the Workspace Receive Connector within the target workspace where files should end up.


Settings related to storing copies of processed messages.

  • Save to Sent folder Whether a copy of processed files should end up in the Sent folder.
  • Send Folder Scheme Sent files are grouped together based on when they are processed (files processed in a similar time period are grouped together). This setting determines how long the grouping period is.


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.

Automation Tab

Automation Settings

Settings related to the automatic processing of files by the connector.

  • Send Whether files arriving at the connector will automatically be sent to the external destination.


Settings related to the allocation of resources to the connector.

  • Max Workers The maximum number of worker threads that will be consumed from the threadpool to process files on this connector. If set, overrides the default setting from the Profile tab.
  • Max Files The maximum number of files that will be processed by the connector each time worker threads are assigned to the connector. If set, overrides the default setting from the Profile tab.


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.
