What is an OData Connector?

An OData connector is a specialised tool or interface that facilitates seamless communication and data exchange between various applications and services using the Open Data Protocol (OData). OData is a standard protocol for building and consuming RESTful APIs, enabling the querying and manipulation of data using simple HTTP requests. The connector simplifies the integration process by translating complex data operations into standard OData queries, thus allowing applications to interact with data sources like databases, cloud services, and enterprise systems without needing extensive custom code. This interoperability ensures that data can be easily accessed, shared, and manipulated across diverse platforms, promoting a more efficient and cohesive data management ecosystem.

One example of an OData connector is Hubway Connect, the preferred OData Connector for the OutSystems platform. It provides an API builder that allows non-developer users to quickly create, configure, and manage OData connections (APIs). These connections provide secure and real-time access to data stored in OutSystems.
