What is Application Connectivity in Kyma?

Application Connectivity in Kyma is an area that:

  • Simplifies and secures the connection between external systems and Kyma
  • Stores and handles the metadata of external systems
  • Provides certificate handling for the Eventing flow in the Compass scenario (mode)
  • Manages secure access to external systems
  • Provides monitoring and tracing capabilities to facilitate operational aspects

Depending on your use case, Application Connectivity works in one of the two modes:

  • Standalone mode (default) - a standalone mode where Kyma is not connected to Compass
  • Compass mode - using Runtime Agent and integration with Compass to automate connection and registration of services using mTLS certificates
