Workspace Receive Connector

Version 23.0.8517

The Workspace Receive Connector performs the singular task of receiving CData 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 Arc 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.

Connector Configuration

Configruation Settings

Settings related to the basic operation of the connector.

  • Connector Id The static name of the connector. All connector-specific files are contained 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 that govern the creation and storage of logs.

  • Log Level Specifies the type of information to log in the connector’s Logs directory:
    • None - Does not create any logs.
    • Error - Creates logs only when the connector encounters an error.
    • Warning - Creates logs only when the connector issues a warning.
    • Info - Logs general information about the workflow, including any errors and warnings (if applicable).
    • Debug - Logs detailed debugging information for both successful and failed workflows.
    • Trace - Logs detailed trace information for both successful and failed workflows.

    Note: The Debug and Trace levels might log sensitive information, including message contents and SSL certificates. Although connection properties (such as passwords) are masked, you should review logs of this level for sensitive information before sharing them outside of your organization.

  • 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 A toggle that instructs the connector to save a copy of the most recent message in the Logs directory. Note that the connector only keeps one message per subfolder, and the connector overrides the previously-saved message when it runs again.


Miscellaneous settings are for specific use cases.

  • Other Settings Enables you to configure hidden connector settings in a semicolon-separated list (for example, setting1=value1;setting2=value2). Normal connector use cases and functionality should not require the use of these settings.
