You can create connections to one or more PostgreSQL databases from Trifacta®. For more information on PostgreSQL, see https://www.postgresql.org/.
If the Trifacta databases are hosted on a PostgreSQL server, do not create a connection to this database.
- If you haven't done so already, you must create and deploy an encryption key file for the Trifacta node to be shared by all relational connections. For more information, see Create Encryption Key File.
To create this connection:
- In the Import Data page, click the Plus sign. Then, select the Relational tab. Click the PostgreSQL card.
- You can also create connections through the Connections page.
- See Connections Page.
For additional details on creating a PostgreSQL connection, see Enable Relational Connections.
This connection can also be created using the API.
