Managing the Apache Phoenix Connector
The Zoomdata Apache Phoenix connector lets you access the data available in your Apache Phoenix storage for visualization and exploration using the Zoomdata client. The Zoomdata Apache Phoenix connector supports Apache Phoenix version 4.7 and Apache Phoenix Query Server 4.7. Apache Phoenix v4.5 requires a separate download. To obtain a connector for Apache Phoenix 4.4, contact Technical Support.
Before you can establish a connection from Zoomdata to Apache Phoenix, a Zoomdata connector server for it needs to be installed, configured and enabled. See Managing Connectors and Connector Servers for general instructions and Connecting to Apache Phoenix for details specific to the Apache Phoenix and Apache Phoenix Query Server connectors.
After the connector has been set up, you can create data source configurations that specify the necessary connection information and identify the data you want to use. See Manage Data Source Configurations for more information. After data sources are configured, they can be used to create dashboards and charts from your data. See Creating Dashboards and Creating Charts.

- The filter IS NULL does not work properly on grouped fields.
- The LOCATE text row-level function only supports a constant as a argument.
