How to share application and related connections to be used ONLY for this particular application

Hey

I'm struggling with a problem of sharing connection with other Business users..

 

I've created an application, and each time when I want to share it with someone else, I also need to share a connection with someone. That would be totally fine, if not the fact that after that user can create his own application and use my previously created connection for that. I checked so many possibilities, both implicit and Explicit connections, and each time, I ended up with same result. 

 

Is there any option to limit the usage of custom connectors? I would like to allow user to use connection only within the scope of the application that was created by me, and on the other hand block the use of custom connectors in case the user wishes to use it in his own application? Any ideas how to achieve it?

Hi @robotdre ,

 

Custom connections can't do this.

But you can do it with flow's http action.

Canvas invoke flow --> Flow run the http action(api) --> return value to canvas

The advantage of this is that you don't need to share this flow with others. In other words the flow can only be invoked by the canvas you created.

Its disadvantage is that it does not implement the encapsulation function like a custom connector.
