The Stitch Import API enables you to push arbitrary data from a source to Stitch. The Import API acts as a receiving point for data that is sent to Stitch. The Import API will ‘listen’ for new data, which is then processed by Stitch as it’s received.

Before you get started

Before you get started, it’s important to note that the Import API cannot extract data from a source - it can only receive data.

To pull data from a source, consider creating a Singer tap instead. Singer is an open source project that allows you to write and collaborate on scripts that move data between databases, web APIs, files queues, and anything else you can think of. Refer to for more info and examples.

Using the Import API
