Askdata relies on the MicroStrategy REST API framework to integrate Askdata seamlessly.
The MicroStrategy REST API is a RESTful application that uses HTTP requests such as POST, GET, and DELETE. It is designed to help developers build data-driven client applications quickly and easily.
It does this by providing light-weight JSON data that is easy to consume because it includes raw data without direct formatting. Developers can use the MicroStrategy REST API programmatically in their own code.
- Fast integration
- Data is always updated in line with the MicroStrategy cubes
- This integration pattern requires the MicroStrategy REST API license module
- Not all aggregation functions are supported due to limited aggregation support available on the MicroStrategy REST API framework
There is an alternative way of integrating MicroStrategy as a datasource though the schedule data batch process: batch data integration
