Defining a Data Source Configuration
To define a new data source configuration:
Make sure you are logged in as a Zoomdata administrator or a user with the Can Create new Data Sources privilege.
Select (Settings) and then select Sources. The Data Sources page appears.
On the Data Sources page, select the icon for the connector you want to use for your data source configuration. If the connector you want is not listed, it may not be enabled. For more information, see Managing Connectors and Connector Servers.
After making your selection, a configuration wizard consisting of several tabs is started. Read about each tab below.
- General Tab
- Connection Tab -- This tab is only available if you are logged in as an administrator or as a user with both the group privileges Can Manage Connections and Can Create new Data Sources.
- Tables/Indices Tab
- Fields Tab
- Refresh Tab
- Charts Tab
If you select a Fusion, flat file or upload API data source, the tabs are different than they are for all other data source configurations. See Creating a Fusion Data Source, Uploading a Flat File into Zoomdata, and Using the Upload API.
Click Finish. After your data source configuration is saved, the main data source page appears. Your new configuration is listed under My Data Sources.
