Version 24.1.8910


You can use the Cloudant connector from the CData Sync application to capture data from Cloudant 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 Cloudant, you first must establish a connection to Cloudant. Follow these steps to connect Cloudant 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 Cloudant 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 URL for your Cloudant server instance (for example, http://localhost:8006).

    • Auth Scheme - Select the authentication scheme. The default setting is Basic. For this setting, specify your login credentials:

      • User - Enter the username that you use to authenticate to your Confluence account.

      • Password - Enter the password that you use to authenticate to your Confluence account.

  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.)
