MindSphere Extract

The MindSphere Extract component calls the MindSphere API to retrieve and store data to be either referenced by an external table or loaded into a table, depending on the user's cloud data warehouse. Users can then transform their data with the Matillion ETL library of transformation components.

Using this component may return structured data that requires flattening. For help with flattening such data, we recommend using the Nested Data Load Component for Amazon Redshift and the Extract Nested Data Component for Snowflake or Google BigQuery.

Note: The tokens loaded from the MindSphere API have a lifespan of 30 minutes. These tokens are stored within an in-memory cache that expires each entry after 25 minutes have elapsed. At this point, a new token is requested.
