Defining a Data Source Configuration

To define a new data source configuration:

  1. Make sure you are logged in as a Zoomdata administrator or a user with the Can Create new Data Sources privilege.

  2. Select (Settings) and then select Sources. The Data Sources page appears.

  3. 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.

    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.

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

  4. Click Finish. After your data source configuration is saved, the main data source page appears. Your new configuration is listed under My Data Sources.
