If you’re having trouble setting up a new source from a successfully tested and published connector using the connector builder, it could be due to a few reasons. Here are some steps you can follow based on the information provided in the extracts: 1. Check if the connector is published: After configuring a connector in the builder, you need to publish it to make it available as a custom connector within the current Airbyte workspace. This captures the current state of the configuration (source). 2. Configure a Source based on the released connector: Once the connector is published, you need to configure a Source based on the released connector. The exact fields of the configuration depend on the connector, but in most cases, it provides authentication information (username and password, API key) and information about which data to extract (source). 3. Set up a connection: The connection links up a configured source and a configured destination to perform syncs. It defines things like the replication frequency (e.g. hourly, daily, manually) and which streams to replicate (source). If you’ve followed these steps and still can’t set up a new source, it might be a good idea to revisit the tutorial on the Connector Builder UI or reach out to the Airbyte community for further assistance.
