Now that data sources have been onboarded, we are ready to create an endpoint and build a pipeline using one of these data sources. With Xapix, you can create REST and SOAP endpoints as well as Kafka event streams and Azure Eventhub event streams
Xapix provides several ways of making endpoints. You can automatically generate an endpoint from a REST or SOAP data source. You can manually create an endpoint by selecting an HTTP method (get, post, put, patch, delete) and providing an address to the data source.
For now we use the automatic generation of an endpoint.
Let's create an endpoint directly from a data source using a data source's options menu. Xapix creates a one-to-one mapping from a data source to a new endpoint. Using the data source findEngineByID, the following endpoint is automatically created.
On each data source listed on the Available Data Sources page is a dropdown menu. This menu includes an option to automatically create an endpoint.
Click Data Sources from the Home menu. This lists the available data sources to your project.
Locate the data source findEngineById in the list of data sources.
Click the down arrow at the end of a data source row to reveal the Options menu for the selected data source.
Click Create mapping with Data Source. Xapix then generates an endpoint and a pipeline.
