Getting Started

Overview

Jitterbit Harmony is Jitterbit's modern, multi-tenant, born-in-the-cloud integration and API platform that connects Software as a Service (SaaS), on-premise, cloud, and legacy applications. 

Jitterbit Harmony is made up of these components:

  • Design Studio: Jitterbit's project design platform where you can design, test, and deploy powerful integration projects.
  • API Manager: Jitterbit's API management web interface where you can create and publish developer-friendly APIs and perform full API lifecycle management tasks.
  • Citizen Integrator: Jitterbit's self-service web interface for non-technical users to quickly customize and deploy integrations using pre-built recipes.
  • Management Console: Jitterbit's web console where you can manage your integration projects and perform administrative functions related to your organization.
  • Jitterbit Microservices: Jitterbit's Harmony APIs, which allow access to all of Jitterbit's functionality via web service calls.
  • Harmony Platform: Jitterbit's platform powering Jitterbit's iPaas capabilities, consisting of these components:
    • API Gateway: The API Gateway provides security, throttling, and validation of any and every incoming API that users publish via Jitterbit.
    • Messaging: Messaging services facilitate communication among various Jitterbit components, providing a reliable method for routing, tracking, and integration retry mechanisms.
    • Agents: Jitterbit Agents do the work at runtime, connecting to various endpoint systems, transforming data, etc. You can use Jitterbit Cloud Agents, Jitterbit Local Agents, or a hybrid deployment model using both.
    • Transaction Logs: Jitterbit transaction logs can be stored for a configurable period of time either locally or on the cloud.
    • Design Repository: Jitterbit's Design Repository is a secure and encrypted, centralized collection of the integration metadata (projects).
    • Backend Services: Jitterbit includes various backend services such as notification engine and remote private agent management.
