The REST API connection provides a generic interface to relational data available through REST APIs. Using this connection type, you can create connections to individual endpoints across hundreds of REST-based applications.
This is an Import-only connection type and a limited set of request methods is supported.
You should identify the tables and (optional) data models for them that you wish to access.
Credentials to access your target endpoints
If you are using a key or token to access the endpoints, you should generate this token before you begin.
Go to the Connections page
Select the Applications tab
Click the REST API card
Modify the following properties as needed:
The base URI for the endpoints to which you wish to connect through this connection. Example:
