What is a Route?

Updated Jul 17, 2020

A ROUTE is an ETL pipeline that moves data from a data SOURCE to a data TARGET. A ROUTE consists of several elements: 

  • A SOURCE adaptor that receives data from an external system.
  • SOURCE records:
    • A set of fields that comprise the starting point for transformations.
    • Are persisted to the K3 database.
  • Transformations (Mappings & Rules)
  • TARGET records:
    • A new set of fields that comprise the transformed data.
    • Are persisted to the K3 database.
  • A TARGET adaptor that delivers transformed data to an external system.
