- About the Connector and Metadata wizard
The Connector and Metadata wizard imports information about an external application or system and generates rules and data objects that your Pega Platform applications can use to communicate with that external system. You use this wizard to generate connector rules or data mapping rules. The wizard uses a flow to guide you through the process of creating a service. Because it uses a flow, the data you enter about the rules is stored as a work item.
