Version 24.1.8910


You can use the RSS connector from the CData Sync application to capture data from RSS 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 RSS, you first must establish a connection to RSS. Follow these steps to connect RSS 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 RSS 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 Token - Enter the authorization token that you use authentication to RSS.

    • URI - Enter the Uniform Resource Identifier (URI) for your RSS feed.

    • Auth Scheme - Select the authorization scheme that you use for HTTP authentication. The default scheme is Basic.

  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.)
