API Structure for Data Sources Updated

We have updated the structure that the REST API uses for Data Sources. A Data Source is an entity that holds information how to connect from the GoodData platform to a Data Warehouse (such as Snowflake).

The structure is used when you are working with Data Sources using the API. For example, it is returned in the API call response when you are creating a Data Source or when you are retrieving information about a Data Source.

In the structure, a new keyword, authentication, was introduced. It lists authentication methods. The credentials (username and password) are now nested under the basic method.


The old structure is deprecated but will continue working in the existing Data Sources until we migrate them to the new structure. We will post a separate announcement to let you know when this is completed.
Any new Data Source will be created with the new structure.
