SundaySky Data Connector Marketplace

As the name suggests, a data connector is a process that transfers data from a source (for example, a data file) to the SundaySky Video Platform where it is used for personalizing videos for your viewers.

SundaySky comes with an ever-growing library of connectors, from which you can choose the one best suited for your needs. In this article you can read about the key features of each data connector.


File Upload

CSV files are manually uploaded to the SundaySky platform.

With this method, you can distribute the video using a landing page built with the SundaySky landing page builder or use your own page and play the video using the SundaySky player.

Google Sheets

SFTP Transfer

Managed by SundaySky Professional Services (free of charge)

How This Works Best Used For Technical Know-How Data Retention Period
A file, containing your data records, is uploaded to SundaySky's SFTP server. From there, the data is processed by SundaySky and imported into a database where it is used for personalizing your video.
Alternatively, the file with the data records can be uploaded to a folder on your SFTP server, and then accessed by SundaySky.

An SFTP transfer is fully automated and can be scheduled to run at certain dates and times. This method does not require human intervention, eliminating the need to perform manual tasks.

With this method, you can distribute the video using a landing page built with the SundaySky landing page builder or use your own page and play the video using the SundaySky player.

SundaySky API

How This Works Best Used For Technical Know-How Data Retention Period
Data is sent directly from your system to the SundaySky API at the moment the viewer clicks play to watch the video. The SundaySky platform responds with a video response to be used for playing the video.

With this method, you can play the video in the SundaySky player.
However, you cannot distribute the video using a landing page built with the SundaySky landing page builder.

To learn more, see Data Connector: SundaySky API.

URL Parameters

How This Works Best Used For Technical Know-How Data Retention Period
Data is passed to the SundaySky platform by adding information to the page URL or the video request, using query string parameters.

With this method, you can distribute the video using a landing page built with the SundaySky landing page builder or use your own page and play the video using the SundaySky player.

Custom Integration

Managed by SundaySky Professional Services (requires additional fee)

How This Works
While there are a variety of connectors in the library, you may prefer a custom integration that is not available in the platform. For example, if you have access to an existing API for personalizing data, a custom integration can enable SundaySky to pull data from this API in real time. In this case and others, SundaySky offers a paid service to create a custom integration on your behalf, unique to your company's requirements.
A custom integration is managed entirely by SundaySky.
