1. Display name: The display name of the data transfer that will be used to distinguish the one you are creating from other transfers.

2. Destination

3. Schedule

  • Frequency: How often the transfer will be repeated. If you select the Daily option, new data will be added once a day.
  • Time: The time when the transfer will be repeated.
  • Refresh window: How many days worth of historical data (backwards from the latest run date) will be refreshed.

4. Schema: Set of tables included in one transfer. You can use pre-defined extraction schemas or design your own by using the Query Manager (How to create a custom schema).

5. Sources: The data source logins that provide access for our system to extract, process and load your data (General data source access requirements). You can authenticate multiple different logins.
