Introduction to Bolt
A Bolt is a data pipeline consisting of a series of actions - Integration, Transformation, and Destination. At Boltic, the process of integrating data source, creating a dataset, transforming it, and then loading it into a destination defines as a Bolt.

Adding an Integration is the first step of all the activities that you will do to create a bolt.

If you have already added an Integration from the Integration listing page, you can click the Select Integration to select your existing Integration
