Connector HTTP

HTTP, or Hypertext Transfer Protocol, is the foundation of data communication on the World Wide Web. It is an application layer protocol that facilitates the transfer of information between a web server and a client browser.

By utilizing the connector, users can access and extract data stored at a specific URL address, seamlessly incorporating it into their data flow. 


HTTP Basic authentication

Use HTTP Basic authentication to store your username and password. Through Basic authentication, you will be able to log in to the website through the URL address. 

In order to do it, you need to insert your username and password in the URL http://username:password@example.com/ 

For example, to download the file from the Dropbox account, you need to know the link to the files you wish to download, Dropbox login and password.

For login Meiro, password Meiro12345 and link: dropbox.com/class/archive.csv, URL would look like


For this example the parameters of your HTTP configurations will look like this:

Host: https://Meiro:Meiro12345@dropbox.com

Path: /class/archive.csv

In this way, you will log in to your Dropbox account through your URL and download CSV files directly to your Data Out bucket.
