Version 24.2.8969


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

    • Auth Scheme - Select the authentication scheme. None is the default setting.

    • Share Point Edition - Enter the edition of SharePoint that you are using. The default value is SharePointOnline.

    • Azure Shared Access Sign - Enter the Azure shared access signature that is associated with your account.

    • Azure Storage Account - Enter the name of your Azure storage account.

    • SSL Mode - Select the authentication mechanism that you want to use when you connect to the FTP or the FTPS server. The default value is AUTOMATIC.

    • Data Source - Enter the URI for the XML/JSON resource location that you want to access.

  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.)
