Create your first integration
Automating the streaming of data between a Source and Destination system using HighCohesion is done by creating a Stream.
The anatomy of a stream
A system here refers to any type of source and destination, be it an a specific 3rd party application, or something more generic like a FTP location, other file storage types or a communication endpoint like email or Slack.
A Stream is created by combining three key components: 1. The Source function - The Source Function decides what data should be pulled from the Source system and when. You will need a System Key in order to pull the data from your Source system. 2. The Transformation - The Transformation is responsible for transforming the data of the Source system to match the data of the Destination System. 3. The Destination - The Destination Function decides what data should be pulled from the Destination system and when. You will need a System Key in order to post the data to your Destination system.
In the next 5 steps we will walk through a use case based guide of how to integrate and automate the flow of data between Shopify & a 3rd party logistics company's FTP-location.
