Introducing OneSchema Import via API

Engineering and product teams use OneSchema to easily build out best-in-class data import capabilities. For workflows that ideally involve a blend of managing some portions of the import process internally while still using OneSchema to handle the rest, we're excited to introduce the ability to initialize the importer via our API.

Engineering and product teams use OneSchema to easily build out best-in-class data import capabilities. We understand every company's file ingestion process is unique. That’s why a focus for OneSchema has always been enabling companies to optimize OneSchema’s import workflow for their specific use case.  

To further expand on the customizability of OneSchema, we’re introducing Import via API.

Import via API

The OneSchema importer consists of 4 main steps: Upload, Header Row Selection, Mapping, and Review. 

An overview of the 4 steps involved in the import process

For workflows that ideally involve a blend of managing some portions of the import process internally while still using OneSchema to handle the rest, initializing the importer via our API provides a great solution.

Example use case

Suppose you want to support file ingestion from a third party, such as importing data directly from Salesforce. Rather than having your customer use the OneSchema UI to upload a file, our API enables your engineering team to send the data to OneSchema directly. Depending on the status of the file uploaded, OneSchema then allows you to surface a subset of the 4 main steps to your user. 

For example, if you want your end user to only see the Mapping and Review steps of the OneSchema Importer, you could initialize the importer by uploading a file with the header rows already set via API. 

Using the API, you can configure your OneSchema importer to skip any of the first 1-3 steps by making the appropriate calls.

Getting started with the OneSchema API

We’re relentless in our mission to provide a seamless experience for your users. Import via API is a leap forward in that goal, and we’re extremely excited to share the news with our customers.
