Testing a Data Connector

Testing a Data Connector

The operation of testing Data Connectors through the RESTFul API allows you to test the connection between the Data Connector and your data store.

The test operation comes in two flavors:

For Existing Data Connectors

This endpoint allows you to check if an existing Data Connector can connect to the data store that it is set up for.

Request:
    GET https://api.everlive.com/v1/Metadata/Applications/your-app-id/DataLinks/data-link-id-here/TestConnection
Headers:
    Authorization: Masterkey your-master-key-here

Response:
    Status: 200 OK
    Content-Type: application/json
Body:
    {
        "Result": true
    }

For New Data Connectors

This endpoint accepts the same data as the one for creating Data Connectors (Name is not required), but only tests whether the creation would be successful, without actually creating a Data Connector.

Request:
    POST https://api.everlive.com/v1/Metadata/Applications/your-app-id/DataLinks/TestConnection
Headers:
    Content-Type: application/json
    Authorization: Masterkey your-master-key-here
Body:
Response:
    Status: 200 OK
    Content-Type: application/json
Body:
    {
        "Result": true
    }
