This document provides information to help you understand adapters in Tidal Enterprise Orchestrator (TEO).
There are no specific requirements for this document.
The information in this document is based on Tidal Enterprise Orchestrator 2.1 or later.
The information in this document was created from the devices in a specific lab environment. All of the devices used in this document started with a cleared (default) configuration. If your network is live, make sure that you understand the potential impact of any command.

Adapters are the components that allow TEO to communicate and interact with multiple components across the IT infrastructure.
Adapters provide a basis for interaction with many components such as SAP, DB2, SNMP, Unix/Linux, VMWare, and many more. Some adapters (for example, SAP Java) require additional components to be installed in order to work properly. An end user will see a Red Shield if the adapter does not have requirements met. The adapter and it's activities will not work if this is not configured properly. The shield will be green if all prerequisites are met. Yellow shields mean some things are met, some are not. Inside adapter configurations an end user can also find overall configurations for the adapter (if applicable) and can find all the activities that are linked back to the adapter by looking at the provides tab. Adapters do not go up or down, they are just available to provide access to the different IT components.
