Data access through REST APIs has become ubiquitous with SaaS products like Salesforce, Facebook, Google and other web services, facilitating integration and augmentation of data with enterprise applications, real time analytics and real time reporting. While many applications and web services have ample documentation to allow for “easy” access to the SaaS platform data through REST API, developing ingestion processes to access data from hundreds of REST APIs can be both time intensive and error prone. In this Office Hours event, we will show you how to easily ingest data from and push data to REST APIs from popular SaaS system. Learn how to seamlessly integrate dozens of downstream and upstream enterprise applications with the platform’s no-code UI.

We explored:

  • Accessing SaaS application like Salesforce using the REST API

  • Updating applications using the REST API calls
