Subject Re: Hooks and connection
Date Wed, 28 Jun 2017 19:17:07 GMT
Hi David,

I’m also a bit of an Airflow novice but what I’ve figured out is that
Connections are essentially parameters for Hooks. The connection type
doesn't seem to be used for anything explicitly (the list of choices is
hard-coded in the Airflow source).

For example, I made a SharePoint hook that defines how content goes into
and comes out of SharePoint. The connection information (URL, protocol,
credentials, etc) is stored as a Connection with type set as 'Samba' (it
was the closest I could find); the Hook just wraps the SharePoint API.

I hope that helps.
