Set up


To get set up with the ONS connector, you will only need to create a new source and set up the relevant extracts for the reports you are interested in. No authentication needed.

The API provides access to datasets (groupings of data), which you can extract through the connector.

Datasets

The List Datasets report will allow you to see all currently available datasets that the API can provide.

There are a number of dataset reports that you can straight away set up as individual extracts through the connector (by selecting them via the Report drop down list in the extract configuration).

There is also an option to use the Custom Dataset report by inputting the relevant dataset-id. You can check the dataset-id by looking at the data extracted in a List Datasets report. As there are hundreds of datasets available in this Beta version of the API, it is possible some of the custom datasets have occasional issues when run as a Custom Dataset report.

Timeseries

Some reports provide data from Timeseries from the ONS. The data for these is acquired programatically, but outside of the ONS API. For each timeseries report you will see the relevant link showing the original ONS Timeseries in the Report Details section above (on this page).
