Version 24.1.8910


You can use the Avro connector from the CData Sync application to capture data from Avro and move it to any supported destination. To do so, you need to add the connector, authenticate to the connector, and complete your connection.

Establish a Connection

To allow Sync to use data from Avro, you first must establish a connection to Avro. Follow these steps to connect Avro to your Sync account:

  1. Open the Connections page of the Sync dashboard.

  2. Click Add Connection to open the Select Connectors page.

  3. Click the Sources tab and locate the Avro row.

  4. Click the Configure Connection icon at the end of that row. If you do not see the Configure Connection icon, you need to add the connector according to the instructions in Connections.

  5. Enter connection settings on the Settings tab:

    • Connection Name - Enter a connection name of your choice.

    • URL - Enter the Uniform Resource Identifier (URI) for your Avro resource location.

    • Connection Type - Select the type of connection that you want to use. The default type is Not Specified.

    • Data Model - Select the data model to use for parsing Avro documents and generating the database metadata. The default data model is Document.

    • Aggregate Files - Specify whether you want to aggregate all the files in the URI directory into a single result. The default version is False.

  6. Click Create & Test to create the connection.

  7. Define advanced connection settings on the Advanced tab. (In most cases, though, you should not need these settings.)
