Connector Plugins API

The Connector Plugins API allows you to identify the installed connectors and plugins as well as listing the datasource configuration properties for a specific connector plugin type.

Each connector has one or more plugin types. After querying for the list of installed connectors, you can use the connector names to get the list of plugins for each one. Querying a specific plugin returns its configuration schema.

Examples
