Trifacta® supports the following types of connections. Use the links below to enable connection to each type and, where applicable, to create new connections to individual instances of the same type. 

Notes:

  • HDFS and Hive connections can be configured as part of platform configuration.
  • Database connections should be configured after you have completed the platform configuration and have validated that it is working for locally uploaded files.

NOTE: Before creating connections to Hive or relational datastores, you must create and deploy an encryption key file. See Create Encryption Key File.

Configure

    . For more information, see Platform Configuration Methods.
  2. Search for the following parameter, and set it to false:

    "webapp.connectivity.nonAdminManagementEnabled": true,
  3. Save your changes and restart the platform.
