Extract and Load your Data Using Loome Integrate

You can also read about a specific example of how to Extract and Load data on our blog.

Installing an Agent

Follow along with Alex as he guides you through the process of how to install an agent in Loome Integrate.

Think of the agent as the “worker” in Loome Integrate Online – it contains all the code which allows jobs to run. This is to replace the back end process of the previous version; we now allow easier data warehousing on multiple servers and hosts, due to the Agent’s ability to be installed on one tenant but across multiple locations.

Assets in Loome

Join Adam as he guides you through publishing and managing assets in Loome. Reports, connections, links and documents are all referred to as "assets" in the analytics portal. The process of publishing an "asset" whether it be an Excel file a Power BI report or a Tableau dashboard is a two step process supporting governed approval workflows.
