MicroStrategy supports connections to many different data sources out-of-the-box, but it also provides a Data Connector SDK that administrators can use to create custom connections to web data sources. Once a new connection is created, users with Data Import privileges can use the custom connection to import data into MicroStrategy, just like they do with out-of-the-box data sources. Currently, MicroStrategy supports data sources with JSON, EXCEL and CSV/TXT file types, but you can also create a connection to a data source with a schema that you define.
The Data Connector SDK includes information, API references, and sample code to help you get started, as well as a simple data connector sample that you can quickly install and play with.
Adding a new data connector describes how to create and register a new data connector.
The following topics walk you through the process of creating a custom connector, starting with sample code for a simple connector that imports CSV data from a single table and then adding complexity. There is also sample code for an HTML page that provides a simple user interface for the custom connector. Only a user with administrative privileges can add a connector on the Intelligence Server.
To see what the Data Connector SDK provides in the current release, refer to What's New.
To take advantage of new data connector features, refer to Upgrading to a newer version of MicroStrategy.
