Provisioning A TIBCO Scribe® Online Cloud Agent
The TIBCO Scribe® Online Cloud Agent facilitates communication between cloud-based data sources used by a Solution. It provides secure communications to TIBCO Scribe® Online without requiring an on-premise presence.
A TIBCO Scribe® Online Agent is required to communicate with both your source and target data, and with TIBCO Scribe® Online in the cloud. Depending on your data, your Organization can have one or more On-Premise Agents and one Cloud Agent at the same time.
Determining which Agent type to select varies depending on the TIBCO Scribe® Online Connector being used and the location of the data being accessed, either on-premise or in the cloud.
- The On-Premise Agent can be used in Solutions with any Connection and with both cloud and local datastores.
- The Cloud Agent can only be used when all Connections in a Solution and associated datastores support the Cloud Agent.
Refer to the documentation for the specific Connector for additional information. See Managing Connections for a list of TIBCO Scribe® Online Connectors.
