Low Code Connector Development and Data Loading

Summary

Query regarding development with low code connectors and data loading into destination schema, involving the use of dbt models to spread raw data into separate columns.


Question

Hello, team! Very quick question, does development with low code connector mean that data will be loaded only on airbyte-internal table not to the destination schema , and that I should add dbt model somehow so that it would spread the raw data into separate columns ? Thanks !!

<@U066U84SC0P> thank you for your reply. My appsflyer response looks something like this (below), so it looks like it doesn’t need any field path to specify. Can you explain me how the incremental sync happen if the destination table is empty so the cursor value (like event_time) is also empty, how airbyte handles the incremental syncs in this case? Is it is Incremental append will it always go back to beginning date and write all data every time ?

Low code connectors have basically the same behavior as native ones, so the destination behavior will be controlled by the destination itself, not the source. If you mean that raw responses returned by the API are not being normalized, that can controlled by defining the primary key and field path fields in the builder, but there is a limit to how much you can unnest, for instance:
