Ingestion API Settings

Ingestion API setup

By default, Nacelle is tech agnostic and can ingest data from any data source. To use Nacelle's Ingestion API directly, create a custom data source.

Setting up the custom source

From the dashboard home, select the space where you’d like to add the connector, then click on Space Settings. Then navigate to the Data Connectors tab.

Click on the Add Data Connectors button (+ Add Connector button if the space has existing connectors) to open up a modal. Click on the dropdown, and select Custom.

Once selected, click on the Save Connector button to proceed.

Now you should be able to see the new Custom connector in your space:

Now that you have set up your Custom Source, you can use the SOURCE ID provided to ingest data using the Nacelle Ingestion API.
