Version 24.1.8910


You can use the JSON connector from the CData Sync application to capture data from JSON 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 JSON, you first must establish a connection to JSON. Follow these steps to connect JSON 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 JSON 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.

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

    • Connection Type - Select the type of connection that you want to use.

    • Data Model - Select the data model that you want to use for parsing JSON documents and generating the database metadata.

    • JSON Path - Enter the JSON path of an array element that defines the separation of rows.

    • JSON Format - Select the format of the JSON document. The default value is JSON.

  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.)
