When you import data into  Trifacta® Wrangler, you are creating a reference to a source of data; the source is never touched. When the data is required for use,  Trifacta Wrangler reads a sample of the source data into the application for your use. Data is read into the application through an object called a connection.

The following are the supported types of connection for the product:

  • Upload/Download: You can upload data directly from your local desktop. You can also save it locally on export.
