💡
Due to the heavy API rate limitations from Exact Online, It is advised to limit the data that will be synced by selecting the specific datasets and starting year. To ensure a minimal load on the Exact Online API’s, we set the default sync time to 6h and implemented when available - sync or bulk api - incremental syncs - start date - incremental through parent object (e.g. purchase entry lines) More information on rate limits from Exact: https://support.exactonline.com/community/s/article/All-All-DNO-Simulation-gen-apilimits?language=en_GB

💡
Exact online does not allow 2 parallel connections with the same users and app. So adding the same connection (User - Peliqan) will result in one of the 2 connections to start failing due to invalid authorization tokens.

Exact Online data sync to a data warehouse

Peliqan offers an out of the box data warehouse. Optionally the user can choose to sync Exact online data to their own data warehouse such as Snowflake, Google Bigquery, MS SQL, ..

Data will be synced to the chosen data warehouse and made available through the Peliqan UI for exploration.
