Cinchy Event Broker/CDC

Cinchy Change Data Capture Notifications

1. Overview

The Cinchy Event Broker/CDC (Change Data Capture) source allows you to capture data changes on your table and use these events in your data syncs.

Example Use Case: You want to set up a real-time sync between a Cinchy Table and Salesforce that updates Salesforce any time data is added, updated, or deleted on the Cinchy side. As long as you enable change notifications on your Cinchy table, you can do so by setting up a data sync and listener config with your source as the Cinchy Event Broker/CDC.

The Cinchy Event Broker/CDC supports both batch syncs and real-time syncs (most common).

Remember to set up your Listener Config if you are creating a real-time sync.

You can review the parameters that can be found in the info tab below (Image 1).

Values

3. Source Tab

The following table outlines the mandatory and optional parameters you will find on the Source tab (Image 2).

The following parameters will help to define your data sync source and how it functions.

Run Query

The Run Query parameter is available as an optional value for the Cinchy Event Broker/CDC connector. If set to true it executes a saved query; whichever record triggered the event becomes a parameter in that query. Thus the query now becomes the source instead of the table itself.

You are able to use any parameters defined in your listener config.

Example

In the below example, we have a data sync using the Event Broker/CDC as a source. Our Listener Config has been set with the CinchyID attribute (Image 4).

We can enable the Run Query function to use the saved query "CDC Product Ticket Datestamps" as our source instead (Image 5). If we change the data from Record A in our source table to trigger our event, the Query Parameters below show that the Cinchy ID of Record A will be used in the query. This query is now our source.

It would appear in the data sync config XML as follows:

  <CinchyEventBrokerDataSource runQuery="true" domain="Product" name="CDC Product Ticket Datestamp" parameters="{&quot;@id&quot;: &quot;Cinchy Id&quot; }">
