database connection?

Newbie here: I have a client who’s data is stored using Backendless, and we need to connect to it and pull some data from it into our own database.
How can we do this? I had a look around the support but couldn’t really work it out.
Can we connect to the underlying database directly or do we have to use a REST API connection? Any other options?

Hi Marc,
You can use platform-specific SDK or generic REST routes, it doesn`t matter. However we suggest using our SDKs.
If you are talking about Data service, the documentation is self-explaining, just head to Also good start would be with our video-blog where you can find useful tricks and features to do in Backendless
