Modules

Overview

UA Office Link has a modular architecture. The Core application consists of:

  • UA Office Link application

    The Windows application hosting app plugins

  • UA Office Link Service

    The back end service responsible for running tasks and coordinating data flow

Each connector consists of

  • App Plugin

    The user interface for connector configuration that is loaded into the UA Office Link application

  • Connector Service

    The backend service that communicates with data sources and data sinks and listens to commands sent by the UA Office Link Service

These software modules are intially installed in a bundle but they can also be installed or updated separately. Installer download links are provided within the UA Office Link application.
