Cinchy Table

Overview

Cinchy Tables are commonly used data sync sources.

Example use case

You want to set up batch sync between a Cinchy Table and HubSpot to sync important sales analytics information. You can do so by using the Cinchy Table as your source, and a REST API as your target.
The Cinchy Table source supports batch syncs. To do a real-time sync from a Cinchy Table, you would use the Cinchy Event Broker/CDC Source instead.
