Can the REST API push data to another destination?

REST APIs by their very nature are HTTP services. This means that they are based on a request/response model. They are not event-driven and not capable of pushing data to a destination. You can poll against the REST API for updated values, but the data is only as current as the polling rate. So if the polling rate is longer than the refresh rate on the server value, you may miss updates.

If you would like to move data based on events, you must write your own solutions using one of our other developer tools, such as the .NET Data Connector or the Universal Driver Interface.
