Difference Between Bold Reports Extract Mode and Bold ETL


Bold ETL, short for Extract, Transform, Load, is an application designed to efficiently extract data from various data source connectors and seamlessly load it into a designated destination database. This tool facilitates the application of data transformations through the utilization of SQL scripts, enabling users to manipulate and enhance the data as needed.

In Bold Reports, users are able to extract data from a variety of large connectors. The main distinction between Bold Reports and Bold ETL lies in their user interfaces; while Bold Reports offers a user-friendly interface, Bold ETL requires configuration through YAML settings.

Use cases of Bold ETL

The limitations of data connectors in Bold Reports data sources are effectively addressed by Bold ETL.

For instance, when a user encounters issues with additional parameters in a MongoDB connection string within the Mongo DB connector, Bold ETL provides a solution by allowing the use of MongoDB connection strings. Additionally, Bold ETL offers incremental refresh support for the MongoDB connector, a feature that is not available in Bold Reports. Refer to MongoDB ETL

With Bold ETL, users can seamlessly integrate multiple connectors within a single project, facilitating the loading and transformation of data from various sources into a destination database.

Utilizing the Bold ETL tool enables the configuration of numerous data store destinations utilizing the same server type, facilitating the loading of data into each. This functionality proves particularly useful in instances where there are multiple databases of identical types, such as MySQL or PostgreSQL, designated for distinct environments (e.g., development, testing, staging, production) or various sectors of business operations.
