Celigo offers 200+ application, database and universal connectors. Among those connectors are AS2, FTP, HTTP, GraphQL, and REST API.

Celigo offers data transformation to remove fields, change fields names, or change the order of the JSON record to fit the requirements for data sent to a lookup or an import. The platform provides Transform Rules feature that helps to transform large Export or Import JSON/XML data to a much smaller JSON structure that is much more readable and easier to understand.
This feature can also be used to flatten the complex JSON structure, provide meaningful field names, and select a limited set of fields for processing in a flow.
The first option for data transformation is by graphically constructing data mapping. It has its limits but it's also possible to check how the transformation will affect data by applying sample input data. Another way is for users to create the data transformation by writing DataWeave code that is written in a special language created by MuleSoft for accessing and transforming data.
Skyvia is a full-featured ETL service that allows building data integrations with powerful transformations between multiple data sources. It is a no code solution with support for data splitting, complex expressions and formulas, lookups, and more.
Skyvia's Data Flow and Control Flow components can be used for building more advanced ETL data pipelines with support for multiple connectors and additional features like modifying the data, flowing through them, splitting flows of records into multiple outputs, or modifying data flow variables.
