You want to programmatically create connectors at scale without using the Fivetran dashboard.
The following are the most common use cases:
- Powered by Fivetran
- Enterprise: Different Business Units
Our REST API is a crucial aspect of limiting manual work for setting up dozens or hundreds of connectors.
Find the source Connector Config that you want to sync.
In the request body of the Create a Connector endpoint, replace the
configfield with the specific connector’s config from Step 1.
Change the payload parameters in the request body to the
POSTrequest to the Create a Connector endpoint.
Validate that the new connector has been created successfully. Check that you’ve received the correct HTTP 201 response from Fivetran’s REST API.
(Optional) Send a
PATCHrequest to the Modify a Connector endpoint to make additional changes to any of the following:
- Sync frequency
- Daily sync time
- Schedule type (auto or manual)
- Config parameters
Repeat Steps 1 through 5 to set up additional sources.
