We will configure a scheduled poll to query the remote system at regular intervals and pull back data from the relevant, newly created, unbonded records which it will pass to Unifi to process.

To set up a scheduled poll that will query the remote system at regular intervals, check whether any new records have been created and then pass that data to Unifi, we will need to configure the following records:

  • Poll Processor

  • Poller

Once those records are configured, we will need to configure the relevant inbound and outbound messages to process and respond to the returned data. We will also need to make some further changes before we can test our create scenario (in order to identify which records to poll for). We will look at the polling records in turn over the next couple of pages.

Before configuring those polling records, let's first look at Connection Variables.
