Hi, I'm using cloud connect and would like to know if it is possible to extract data using the SOAP component (web services), process the data and then send it to gooddata web. I don't know if this is the right place for this question.
Hey Kevin. SOAP connector is standard reader component and you can use it to download data and then transform it and send using GD Dataset Writer directly to a GoodData workspace. Or you can write it to CSV and use DB Execute component to write the data to GoodData ADS.
I do not recommend CloudConnect for new implementation. It is succeeded by a new ways of loading data to GoodData. We have a new robust data pipeline applications and direct connection to cloud databases.
There is no general SOAP connector, but we there are usually other ways how to get the data. The most universal one is to extract the data to CSVs.
Or if there is no other way the data pipeline is versatile and it is possible to develop a new downloader component.
