Snap Type:Write
Description:

This Snap creates and writes data to the Reltio objects (Entities/ Relations/ Interactions/ Categories) in a Reltio instance. To configure this Snap, you must specify the type of object to create, the Tenant URL, and so on. You can also configure query parameters and their corresponding values.  

ETL Transformations & Data Flow

Based on the Snap configuration, the Reltio Create Snap performs a load operation by writing into the Reltio instance. 

Input & Output

  • Input One input view is required to provide attribute values for the object you want to create. For example, for a Relations object, you need to provide startObject, endObject, type, and crosswalks.
  • Output: Response for the Snap contains every value specified in attributes for that particular object, including crosswalk type/ values.

Modes

Prerequisites:

Reltio account with a valid Tenant ID so that Tenant URL can be formed/API for Account Settings. Also, the Reltio account must have write access to create objects in the Tenant.

Limitations and Known Issues:

You cannot roll back the productized Reltio Snap Pack in 4.20 to a prior version.

Configurations:

Account & Access

This Snap uses account references created on the Accounts page of SnapLogic Manager to handle access to this endpoint. See Reltio Account for information on setting up this type of account.

Views

InputThis Snap has exactly one document input view.
OutputThis Snap has exactly one document output view.
ErrorThis Snap has at most one document error view and produces zero or more documents in the view.


Troubleshooting:None at the moment.

Settings

Label


Required. The name for the Snap. You can modify this to be more specific, especially if you have more than one of the same Snap in your pipeline.
Tenant URL

Required. This determines the Reltio host with Tenant ID. Use this format:

https://<reltio_host>/reltio/api/<tenant_id>

Examplehttps://test.reltio.com/reltiotest/api/XKiqdracb178fmuXYr3U7ZrG6/

Default value: https://<your_reltio_host>/reltio/api/<tenant_id>


Info

This value can be provided dynamically as a pipeline parameter or directly in the Snap, but not as an upstream parameter. 


Object

Required. The Reltio Object to be created.  This is a suggestible field. Reltio typically has 4 objects - Entities/ Interactions/ Relations/ Categories. Suggestion only works if a valid account/ tenant URL is provided.

  • Entities: Entities are objects for the representation such as People, CompanyCompanies, and Locations.
  • Categories: Entities are structured under the Categories. An entity can belong to multiple categories.
  • Interactions: Interactions are the actions between two or more entities that have an impact on one another. For example: , email is an interaction that sends emails to one or several entities. Depending on the business model, you can also define different types of interactions in their instance.
  • Relations: Relations define the links between entities.

Default value: [None]


Info
This value can be provided dynamically as a pipeline parameter or directly in the Snap, but not as an upstream parameter. 


Object types

Required. Based on the Object selected, this property can be configured to select the object type. This is a suggestible field, but the suggestion works only if a valid account/ tenant URL/ object is provided.

Default value: [None]


Info
This value can be provided dynamically as a pipeline parameter or directly in the Snap, but not as an upstream parameter. 


Batch size


Excerpt

Specifies the number of records that you want the Snap to process in a single API call.

Default value: 1

Minimum value: 1

Maximum value: 2,147,483,647


Info

This value can be provided dynamically as a pipeline parameter or directly in the Snap, but not as an upstream parameter.

Query parametersDefines the query parameters and their values. The query parameters will be attached to the URL using the HTTP query parameter syntax, separated by & added as key=value.
Query parameter

Key A key which can be used in the HTTP request for Reltio.

Default value: [None]


Info

This value can be provided dynamically as a pipeline parameter or directly in the Snap, but not as an upstream parameter. 


Query parameter value

Value The value associated with the specified Query parameter key.

Default value: [None]

Examples


Basic Use Case

The following pipeline describes how the Snap functions as a standalone Snap in a pipeline:

The Snap is configured with the following parameters:

An example of the output data from executing this pipeline: 

Exported An exported pipeline is available in the Downloads section below.

Typical Snap Configurations

Key The key configuration of the Snap lies in how the values are passed. The values can be passed:

  • Without Expressions:

Values are passed directly in the Snap:

  • With Expressions:
    • Using pipeline parameters:

                    

Advanced Use Case

The following describes a pipeline, with a broader business logic involving multiple ETL transformations, that shows how typically in an enterprise environment, the Reltio functionality is used. The pipeline download is available in the Downloads section.

This pipeline retrieves the data from the Oracle Database and loads it into the Reltio instance.

The key ETL transformations: 

Extract: The Oracle Select Snap retrieves the data from the Oracle database.

Transform: The Head and the Mapper Snaps maps map the specific data to be moved into the Reltio instance.

Load: The Reltio Create Snap creates the entities from the documents received from the upstream.

The pipeline further uses the Reltio Merge, Unmerge  and the and Delete Snaps to perform the respective functions while transforming ( the JSON Splitter, Mapper, and the Head Snaps) the data to serve the various business purposes.
