Sisense lets you import data from multiple sources using built-in connectors or by a customized connector. Sisense custom REST connectors framework enable you to program your own connectors to popular data sources which support REST services, to import data directly into the ElastiCube Manager.
Custom REST connectors provide Sisense with the end points and authentication information that allows Sisense to return the requested data. To do so, you create a connector configuration file in JSON for each unique source.
To help you learn how to set up custom REST connectors we've created a technical webinar (~40 min).
In the webinar, we are walking you through the connectors creation highlights:
- Data connectors overview – Native vs. Custom REST, when to use each kind?
- Creating a Custom REST connector workflow: Retrieving RESTful Credentials, Creating configuration files and defining them.
- Troubleshooting common issues.
