This document provides the information needed to connect a source to QueryBoost.
Sources represent the SaaS API services that you want to query through QueryBoost. QueryBoost provides two methods to connect to a source:
QueryBoost will store and use an OAuth token to call the api on your behalf. Sources that offer OAuth authentication use this method.
QueryBoost will encrypt the API Key and save the encrypted value. When you execute a query, QueryBoost will decrypt the key and use it to call the API.
To use QueryBoost you need to have connected at least one source.
Connect a source
Go to the Sources page to see available sources.
For OAuth Sources:
Click on "Connect Via OAuth"
QueryBoost sends you to the source's website
Authorize QueryBoost to access the source
The source creates tokens for QueryBoost to use and returns you to QueryBoost
For API Sources:
Enter your API Key for the source in the input box
QueryBoost encrypts the key and saves it to AWS Secure Secrets Manager
You can find your connected sources on the sources page
Once a source is connected, you are able to write queries to retrieve data.
