A Pipeline moves your data from a Source system to a Destination database or data warehouse. It has the following components:

  • Source: A Source can be a database, a SaaS-based application (an API endpoint) or a file storage which has the data that you want to analyze. Hevo integrates with a variety of Sources. Read Sources.

  • Transformations: Transformations are useful when you want to clean, enrich, or transform your data before loading it to your Destination.

  • Schema Mapper: Schema Mapper helps you map your Source schemas to tables in your Destination.

  • Destination: Destination is a data warehouse or database where the data fetched from a Source is loaded. Read Destinations.

    Note: At present, SaaS Destinations are not supported.

You can connect only one Source and Destination in a Pipeline. However, multiple Pipelines may load to the same Destination.

Refer to the documents in this section to know how you can create and manage your Pipelines and their operations using the Hevo UI.
