Data Sources in SSB

Data sources are a catalog of data endpoints to be used as sources and sinks. Data providers allow you to register the provider using your security credentials, then use that provider for a source or sink in SQL Stream Builder. After adding a data source, you are able to use the registered component as virtual tables.

You can access Data Sources through the Streaming SQL Console:
  1. Go to your cluster in Cloudera Manager.
  2. Click on SQL Stream Builder from the list of Services.
  3. Click on SQLStreamBuilder Console.

    The Streaming SQL Console opens up in a new window.

  4. Click on Data Sources on the main menu.

    You are redirected to the Data Sources page.

The data source you register will be listed on the Data Sources page. You can register a data source by clicking on the Register Kafka Provider button. You can also Edit and Delete the already registered data sources.
