Add data sources to pipeline

Now that we have an Endpoint and set a data sample value for the Request, let's add some data sources to the pipeline. When done, the pipeline will look like the following:

Add three data sources to pipeline

Using the data sources from the Xapix quickstart, we will add the following data sources to the pipeline:

  • findVariantById

  • findEngineById

  • findModelById

If you need help adding data sources to pipeline, see the instructions in Creating pipeline connections.

Steps

Description

1

In the Pipeline dashboard, from the Data Sources list, click findVariantById to add it to the dashboard.

2

From the Data Sources list, click findEngineById to add it to the dashboard.

3

Do the same with findModelById to add it to the dashboard.

4

You should now have a Request unit, an Endpoint unit and the three data source units on the dashboard.

Note: If you made a mistake and want to delete a unit, just click the unit and from the unit menu (the dots ... next to unit name) click Remove Unit from Pipeline.

5

Let's start mapping the pipeline.

6

Drag a line from the Request unit to the findVariantById unit to connect these two units. Note: Connecting units is very simple. You just drag a line from one unit and drop it on the second unit.

7

Drag a line from the findVariantById unit to the findEngineById unit to connect these two unit.

8

Drag a line from the findVariantById unit to the findModelById unit to connect these two unit.
