Query the Parsley API using regular SQL

You're a developer. You're perfectly capable of connecting to the Parsley API and pulling down data. But why waste your time building an API integration when your skills and time are better spent elsewhere?

API integrations are hard to build and maintain. But with SyncHub, you can query your data source using a language you know and love - SQL.

How it works

Get your Parsley data into your favourite reporting tool in just two minutes and three easy steps.

1 2 3 Connect Parsley to SyncHub

Securely connect your cloud software to SyncHub and we'll do the rest.

1 2 3 We sync your data automatically

SyncHub incrementally syncs your data and stages it in a managed data warehouse. We check for changes so you don't have to.

1 2 3 Connect your reporting tool

Query and share your data using our built-in Insights platform, or use your own reporting tool - such as like Excel, Tableau or Power BI.

No ODBC driver required

SyncHub runs in the cloud, 24×7. There are no ODBC drivers to install or maintain, and no local computer required to cache your results. Just securely connect SyncHub to your Parsley account and you can be querying your data in just a couple of minutes.


Want more power? How about views, stored procedures or triggers? No problem - SyncHub's Bring Your Own Database feature gives you complete control over your database.

Real-time data*

Make a change in Parsley and query it via SQL within minutes. Our feed is so quick, you'll think you're querying Parsley directly!

Your data is secure

Your Parsley data is stored using best-practice security protocols. But if you're still concerned, no worries - just use our BYOD (Bring Your Own Database) option when setting up your account.

Frequently asked questions

Not directly, no. But SyncHub's ERD model, combined with the real-time* sync from Parsley, means that it is essentially the same as querying directly.
No. Our solution is cloud-hosted, meaning no installs are required on your own computers. Furthermore, because it is cloud-hosted, SyncHub runs in the background 24-7, keeping your data up to date while you sleep.
If your SQL skills are a little rusty, we've got you covered too. Our AI-powered Query Assistant uses knowledge of your Parsley data model to create SQL queries for you - just describe your problem and watch the magic happen.
SyncHub can poll Parsley as frequently as every five minutes, however this capability may be limited by the amount of data you have and/or the type of plan you have with Parsley. The best way to find out is to simply grab a free trial of SyncHub, connect Parsley, then see for yourself.
No. SyncHub is a reporting tool and cannot reflect changes back to your cloud application.
We currently sync Menu, Menu item, Sale, Menu section, Menu item tag, Sale line, Menu section item, Menu item characteristic, Menu item allergen and Menu item nutrient (see our Data Model for full details). If there's something else you need just ask.
Your Parsley data is stored in its own dedicated data warehouse, hosted in our Microsoft Azure Sydney Data Center. If you'd like it stored somewhere else (even your own servers), just enquire about our BYOD (bring-your-own-database) option.
Absolutely. Every customer gets their very own isolated data warehouse. Database credentials are salt-encrypted...multi-factor authentication can be activated for your account...we take security very seriously. You can read more about our security best practices here.

SyncHub's engine polls for changes every 5 minutes. However, different APIs, and different endpoints within those APIs, may impose restrictions beyond our control - thereby reducing the fidelity of your real-time feed.
