Read Access: Your database administrator must configure read permissions to the appropriate databases, tables and views for your use.
Database access is managed through connections.

You can create a from a table or view stored in a connected database.
For more information, see Database Browser.
NOTE: When executing a job using a relational source, the job may fail if one or more columns has been dropped from the underlying source table. As a workaround, the recipe panel may show steps referencing the missing columns, which be used to fix to either fix the recipe or the source data.
Relational connections can be configured to support writing results back to the database.
NOTE: You can only write to databases from the Run Job page. You cannot ad-hoc publish to a relational database.
NOTE: When writing to a new table in a relational target, the first entry in any mapping is used for writing out the value. Subsequent entries in the mapping are used for validation only on writing to new tables. See Connection Types.
Natively supported connection types are automatically enabled for writeback.
