DataSelf has been working closely with Acumatica Inc to certificate and optimize the OData extraction to be efficient, fast and cause minimal performance impact in your Acumatica ERP/CRM.
Time Required to Execute this Procedure
Deployment procedure: 30 minutes
Reading all related documentation first: hours
Data load: you can run the data load unassisted. It can take from minutes to hours (or even days) depending on your data volume.
1. ETL+ Deployment for Acumatica Cloud
OData Extraction Setup: Click here for instructions to deploy DataSelf Generic Inquiries (GIs).
Wait until you receive an DataSelf email notifying your cloud-to-cloud deployment has been completed.
2. Level 1 Testing
The Level 1 Testing checks if the data extraction process finished successfully and the overall row count per extracted table matches with Acumatica’s replicated table row counts.
The following Test 1 steps assume ETL+ has already loaded your data manually or scheduled:
If you haven’t installed ETL+ on your Windows computer yet: ETL+ Deployment Instructions.
Login to ETL+ (help here).
On the ETL main page, click the top-right
Logicon. Log page help here.
Scroll down on the log page and double-check that no table load failed, and the row count matches with the source tables in Acumatica.
Following is an example highlighting two tables and loaded row count.
Failed to load tables:
Most common: Check that the user assigned to DataSelf has OData rights to that particular data set.
Backfrom the Log page, on the ETL main page, select the failing table on the center panel, check that its SQL Statement on the right panel has correct information.
Tables with row count different than in Acumatica:
It might be just that many new records have been populated in Acumatica since the DataSelf data load. Reload the data. Click
Backfrom the Log page, on the ETL main page, select the table with incorrect row count on the center panel,
right-clickthe table on the center panel again ->
Load Now. This might take a while if the table has a large data set.
The Acumatica user assigned to ETL+ might have access to limited data sets, such as only data from one Branch. Check the user’s security credentials.
In most cases, the out of the box DataSelf solution is all set once the above is completed.
3. ETL+ OData Configuration
Only do the following if/when you need to do OData configuration maintenance!
Login to ETL+ (help here).
On the ETL main page,
right-click Acumaticaon the left panel →
Aliasbox is automatically populated, but you can customize it.
Odata feed (URL): Enter the Acumatica OData URL. Click here for instructions.

Authentication: Set it to
Extraction blocks: By default, leave it at 1000 records.
