Developing custom ETLs
The TrueSight Capacity Optimization ETL set can be extended using the ETL Development API provided by Integration Studio.
The ETL Development API allows you to develop a new ETL from scratch, drawing heavily from the existing ETL framework. This ensures that the new ETL run is efficient, safe, controlled, and maintained. The ETL Development API is the only Integrated Development Environment required to write, test, and run both standard, and open ETLs.
Standard ETLs and Open ETLs (also known as Custom ETLs) are ETL modules responsible for data integration in the ETL Development API. These modules let you integrate custom data into the TrueSight Capacity Optimization space.
The ETL Development API
Before developing a new ETL, it is advisable to check if an existing (open) ETL is already available for use.
ETL development in Integration Studio enables you to:
- Write, test, and debug a custom ETL module.
- Quickly access code templates, and other useful information to build a custom ETL.
- Activate a custom ETL in your TrueSight Capacity Optimization environment, and use it as a standard ETL.
- Use a shared code repository local to your installation.
