Connecting to a data source in CDP Data Visualization

CDP Data Visualization allows you to create connections to many types of external data sources.

When using CDP Data Visualization in CDP Public Cloud with Cloudera Data Warehouse (CDW), the data connection is automatically set up, but you can connect to other data sources as well. In Cloudera Machine Learning (CML), you can connect to an Impala or a Hive data warehouse, or tie in data from predictive CML models.

The supported connection types are:
  • Impala
  • Hive
  • Druid
  • SQLite
  • MySQL
  • MariaDB
  • PostgreSQL

When using CDP Data Visualization in Cloudera Data Science Workbench (CDSW), you can connect to a running Impala or Hive system.
