Define data to transfer to external platform
In addition to receiving data from the external platform, you can also define which data to send to the external platforms. This is done in the data transfer area which is accessed in the ribbon.
In here you select the data type you want to transfer to the external platform, the options available are specific for the type of connector used.
Note: Not all data transfer types are activated, these can however be activated on request and are subject to the external platforms API supporting it.
Define field mapping for the API
For each connection the data that’s retrieved via the API has to mapped to fields in the connectors staging table. This is fully configurable, but all connections comes with a default one-click setup to get you started.
