Populator

The populator’s goal is simply to store data from a data source into a local database.

In order to populate our local db, we first need to satisfy the following pre-conditions:

  • Have the data source that we wish to store already integrated
  • Have our local db entity created

You can create a populator either through the “linked elements” tab from sources or a local db.

In either case, clicking on “create” will bring you to the populator creation page, where you’ll be prompted to fill in the missing information.

Populators look and feel exactly like resolvers. The page itself is split into 3 sections:

  • The data source preview
  • The matchers
  • The local db fields
