Typical Uses

  • Upload, download, list, or delete data from a Trimble Connect account
  • Transfer data from Trimble Connect to an attribute in FME, or vice versa
  • Retrieve data from a Trimble Connect account for use elsewhere in a workspace

How does it work?

The TrimbleConnectConnector uses your Trimble Connect account credentials (either via a previously defined FME web connection, or by setting up a new FME web connection right from the transformer) to access the Trimble Connect platform.

Depending on your choice of actions, it will upload or download files, folders, and attributes; list out Trimble Connect files; or delete items from the service. On uploads, link attributes are added to the output features. On List actions, links and file/folder information are added as attributes.

Usage Notes

  • There is a maximum length of 255 characters for folder and file names
  • The upload size limit for a single file is 5GB.
  • Files larger than 5MiB will be uploaded via multipart upload. Each part is 250MB.
  • As described in the Trimble Connect API documentation, the upload will be marked as “EXPIRED” (and the feature rejected) if the file is not uploaded within 90 minutes for single-part upload.
  • This transformer cannot be used to directly move or copy files between different Trimble Connect locations. However, multiple TrimbleConnectConnectors can be used to accomplish these tasks.
  • The FeatureReader can access Trimble Connect directly (without using the TrimbleConnectConnector), however, a local copy of the dataset will not be created.
