Can anyone help?

I am attempting to verify if it is even logical for me to entertain a customer requirement.

Requirement: build a Custom Extension for a Design Studio app that allows users to initiate a ETL (Data Services).

Any input or references to research are appreciated, I have been in and out of everything I can find and have yet to land on a answer.

Thanks in Advance!

Hi Keith,

From a technical perspective, the only way you could integrate Data Services with the Design Studio SDK is if Data Services has a web service-based API. From my quick search, I couldn't find the existence of such an API.

Now from a practical perspective, even if such an API for integration existed, I would ask the question of the business case for such an integration with Design Studio. What exactly does your customer want to achieve with this integration? I am almost certain that for this particular use case, Design Studio would not be the appropriate tool.

Keith - I agree with Mustafa about the use case, but it did get me thinking

If you are thinking using something like Web Intelligence as a data source, then APOS has an add-on for that; perhaps check that out.

I also attended a Visual BI webcast this week, and they are planning a "Web Services" as a data source feature in the future. I don't know how or if that web service would work with Data Services.

Extension directory is at if you want to contact these partners for their solutions.
