Creating Datasets Using New Data Sources

To create a dataset from a new data source, provide connection information to the data source:

  • For local text or Excel files, you can simply identify the file location and upload the file.

  • For Amazon S3, provide a manifest identifying the files or buckets that you want to use, and also the import settings for the target files.

  • For Amazon Athena, all Athena databases for your AWS account are returned. No additional credentials are required.

  • For Salesforce, provide credentials to connect with.

  • For Amazon Redshift, Amazon RDS, Amazon EC2, or other database data sources, provide information about the server and database that host the data. Also provide valid credentials for that database instance.
