Controller on Cloud - Expose SQL DB to allow import of data via staging table and import spec
We have a Controller On-Prem customer considering migrating to Controller on Cloud.
They have built a small app that loads data from their ERP into Controller via the Staging Table, and then initiates a data load via an Import Spec. In order for this app to work they require access to the Controller DB which they have with On-Prem.
Controller on Cloud does not allow for this type of access, which effectively eliminates the option of loading data via the Staging Table.
Our idea is to expose the SQL DB in a secure manner, whether that be direct or via an API.
