Good morning,

I have a number of data sources in my organization which use REST APIs, including, Clarizen, Azure Application Insights, New Relic, Sharepoint and Xero. I am trying to set these up through the REST API option, but I can't figure out how to structure them correctly.

For instance, where do I put request headers? Where do I put the request body? What is the format of the "metadata" block that I need to fill in. I see that most of the connectors have specific help pages, but I can't find one for REST. Am I looking in the wrong place?

Hello Erica,


Thank you for contacting us!


At the moment, REST connection documentation is not available. REST connectors are used for data sources that are not included in the list of supported connectors in Skyvia. Generally, all the information that is needed for REST connector creation is prepared by our developers according to the user's requests. First, we study API of the requested data sources and, if possible, prepare all the necessary information for creating REST connection (provider configuration, metadata for all objects, supported methods, etc.). Then we send this information to our users with the required steps.


We will study requested data sources and reply you back as soon as any news is available.
