Aderant Expert Connector for UNIFYBroker

Daniel Walters 3 months ago in UNIFYBroker/Aderant Expert • updated by anonymous 3 months ago 10

Is this a custom connector? I can't see it in the KB. What's the situation if it is a custom connector? It's installed with a v4IdB currently but I don't have the connector installation. Would further development be required for the connector to work with 5?

The intention was always to commercialise it, but the API's were not ready in time so we had to go straight to the database. Since then client specific fields were also added in. The connector was upgraded for a new version of Aderant Expert, but I don't believe they ended up using it. The connector would need to be upgraded, please loop in Richard.

Can I just confirm that this agent is definitely not the expert agent? They have it installed but I don't think they're using it.

    <Agent name="Global Aderant Expert Agent" id="4c9a29de-8bae-4e95-a17b-c9f8a1fedc14" type="Unify.Agent.SqlServerDatabase" description="">

  <Extended xmlns="">

    <communicator connectionString="removed" />

      </Extended>

    </Agent>

Is the agent id referenced by any of the connectors?

I don't have access to check right now but there's only two agents and the other one is Chris21

Shouldn't I see a SQL agent installed here in add or remove programs?

The SQL agent is included OOTB with Identity Broker, so it's not a separate install.

So although the Aderant Expert connector uses the SQL Agent, I still need to have the connector installed so I need a new version for an upgrade here. Perhaps if I'd phrased my questions differently I could have gotten this info.

Hi Dan, 

Adam mentioned it above: "The connector would need to be upgraded, please loop in Richard."

The agent and connector are different components, while the agent is included OOTB the connector is not. 

I thought the connector wasn't in use because there was only a SQL agent and no Aderant Expert agent. Good to know more about Identity Broker, I thought the Unify Identity Broker for x installations were really just custom agents and that connectors were a generic thing that plugged into an agent.
