At Cloud Elements, we believe in building everything “API-first”. Everything on the Cloud Elements platform is fully accessible using APIs. Our tool Element Mapper is just a UI on top of our fully functional Transformation APIs. As a developer using the Cloud Elements platform, you always have a choice. You have the choice to either use the APIs only, switch between the APIs and the UIs we offer, or use the UI solely. But at the end of the day, everything is built fully on RESTful APIs. You can find documentation for our Transformation APIs here.
Example 1: Combine ‘First Name’ and ‘Last Name’ Fields.
When mapping fields between two services, it is common to find that one service has separate fields for ‘First Name’ and ‘Last Name’, while the other service has a field called “Name” with first name and last name together. This causes an issue when you go to map these fields. The best way to map these fields without losing data is to transform the data payload to combine first name and last name into one field, before syncing the data with the connected service.
Example 2: Help Desk Ticket Syncing
By changing the data payload, I am able to sync tickets across systems without sending data that isn’t applicable in the receiving system.
