HCL Compass CM API subproviders

A subprovider is an API extension package that is created for a supported product.

The subproviders connect to the API provider and represent defined resources stored in each integrated product. Each subprovider maps an integrated product object hierarchy to the API object model hierarchy.

Although you can use the top-level API packages to retrieve data from the product-specific repositories in a generic way, the API domain-specific packages provide additional interfaces for performing specific tasks, such as
  • Creating, modifying, and deleting database records
  • Applying an state-transition action to a record
  • Creating and running a query
  • Modifying fields in a record
