Install a model-first connector
At the time of this publication, selecting an API Builder model-first connector from the Axway Marketplace and clicking Download will redirect you to a third party site for the selected connector.
To download and install the selected connector, execute the provided Appcelerator CLI
install command from within your API project. For example, the install command for the MongoDB Connector is:
appc install connector/appc.mongo
install command will place the connector in the
connectors directory of your project.
Searching for connectors can be accomplished by two different methods: searching using the Axway Marketplace lists or searching using the Marketplace search function.
If you are unsure of the exact connector name, you can search the Marketplace search function.
If you know the component name starts with a certain string or character, try entering the first letters of the component name, for example, sales. This example will return a list of components in order of relevance. To narrow the list of components to those specific to API Builder, select API Builder in the API Management list.
