Manage Data Source Configurations

Zoomdata can connect to a wide array of data stores—from modern databases such as Hadoop, Search, Streaming, and NoSQL, to traditional sources like SQL-based stores.

To connect to a data store and use its data in a Zoomdata chart, you must first create a data source configuration for it. The following topics describe how to maintain your data source configurations.

Zoomdata supports only underscores and dashes in data store field names. No other special characters or white space are supported. If your data store uses special characters other than underscores and dashes in field names, please remove them before attempting to create a data source configuration.

For information about how Zoomdata caches data, see How Zoomdata Caches Data. For information on ways you can manipulate the data received from your data store, see Manipulate Data in Zoomdata v4.

For information on configuring the time bar or search bar defaults, including the default refresh rates, for your data source, see Configuring Time Bar Defaults and Configuring Search Box Defaults.
