Apify Dataset

Web scraping and automation platform.

Overview

Apify is a web scraping and web automation platform providing both ready-made and custom solutions, an open-source SDK for web scraping, proxies, and many other tools to help you build and run web automation jobs at scale.

The results of a scraping job are usually stored in Apify Dataset. This Airbyte connector allows you to automatically sync the contents of a dataset to your chosen destination using Airbyte.

To sync data from a dataset, all you need to know is its ID. You will find it in Apify console under storages.

Running Airbyte sync from Apify webhook

When your Apify job (aka actor run) finishes, it can trigger an Airbyte sync by calling the Airbyte API manual connection trigger (POST /v1/connections/sync). The API can be called from Apify webhook which is executed when your Apify run finishes.

Output schema

Since the dataset items do not have strongly typed schema, they are synced as objects, without any assumption on their content.
