We will configure a scheduled poll to query the remote system at regular intervals and pull back data that has changed 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 data has changed and then pass that data to Unifi, we will need to configure the following records:
- Poll Processor
Once those records are configured, we will need to configure an inbound message to process the returned data. We will also need to make some changes to our outbound messages before we can test our update scenario (in order to prove the poll is returning the expected data and the target record is updated accordingly). We will look at the polling records in turn over the next couple of pages.
We're now ready to configure the Poll Processor.
