I have seen integration with external data sources mentioned throughout documentation but cannot find the guidance on how to do this.  To save me time can you tell me if it is possible to connect to a third party rest service and build models from the the data returned,  such as from Appery.io that use mungoDB?

Hello Joe,

The support for such a scenario does not come with Telerik Data Access out-of-the-box. However, it could be done, with the help an API of ours which allows you to define and consume persistent types during runtime. It is called Artificial Types and more information about it can be found in this documentation section. The idea is to retrieve the data through the service and based on them to use the Artificial Types API to create the necessary database infrastructure. We offer a sample in our Samples Kit, called Consuming Types Defined During Runtime, which generally demonstrated the approach. Note that the sample uses user's input for creating the structure in the database, and not a REST service.

I hope this helps. If you need further information, do not hesitate to get back to us.
