We can’t wait to see you there!

Can I prevew an API in the connection phase?


  • Hi @william_mollers,

    A preview is not available for API data streams. The TotalConnect preview is always based on the Source File (usually the creation file).

    However, API data streams are not structured the same way. They do not have a Source File as they change dynamically. This means that if they had a Source File, it could change due to API Provider changes.

    If you wish to preview the data in order to map it, I can recommend:

    1) Create the API data stream, selecting initial fetch today's date.
    2) Un-map all fields.
    3) Process the data stream for a date range you like.
    4) Then you can use the pulled file into a TotalConnect in order to experiment and preview the mapping outcome.

    Let me know if you need anything else :)
