The Connect New Source page allows users to view all the Kleene connectors available for use in production. Rather than scrolling through the 100+ available connectors, a search bar in the top right of the screen can be used to easily navigate through the list.
From this page, the user can also set up the connector to whichever data source they choose by clicking on the
CONNECT button, which is located on the bottom left of the connector box.
For the example of mongoDB, clicking
CONNECT will prompt an input screen for credentials and parameters to create a connection to mongoDB:
Once the credentials and fields have been filled out, click save and the source will be visible on the Connections page of the app.
Once a connector has been set up, the next step is to set up the extracts, which specifically point at endpoints in a source. Hence, the connector effectively needs to be "told what data to extract" and from where in the data source.
