Managing the Cloudera Search Connector
Zoomdata supports Cloudera Search version 4.4 - 7.4.
Before you can establish a connection from Zoomdata to Cloudera Search storage, a connector server needs to be installed and configured. See Managing Connectors and Connector Servers for general instructions and Connecting to Cloudera Search for details specific to the Cloudera Search connector.
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.
