2. Configuring the Layer2 Cloud Connector
2.1. Creating a new connection
We are going so synchronize our Square to a custom SharePoint list.
Your initial synchronization should always be uni-directional to assure that both data entities are identical before switching to bi-directional syncs.
Create a new connection in the Layer2 Cloud Connector, name it and set the direction to uni-directional.
2.2. Configuring the start system
Select the provider for Square.
Select the source system and name it.
Set the connection string with the parameters from your Square app.
The Select statement:
SELECT * FROM Items;
Set your primary key too.
If everything runs fine you will be prompted to login and your data will be visible after.
2.3. Configuring the end system
We are going to send the data to a custom SharePoint list. Create the list first with the desired columns and copy the URL.
For more information about the SharePoint provider visit:
Enter your password in the dedicated field and a primary key.
If the fields from SharePoint are named identical to the fields from the source system, the auto-mapping function will match appropriate columns. We mapped our fields manually in this case.
2.4. Running your connection
You can now run your connection.

And the transferred data to our custom SharePoint list.
