How to create a connection used to store the test dataset that will be processed in your first pipeline.

Creating a Test connection is the easiest way to start if you do not have data available in a specific system yet, as it is a "fake" connection that allows you to enter manually your test data and save it as a reusable dataset.


  1. On the Home page, click Connections > ADD CONNECTION.
  2. In the panel that opens, give a name to your connection, Test connection for example.
  3. Select your engine in the Engine list.
  4. Select Test connection in the Connection type list.
  5. Enter a description if needed and click ADD DATASET to validate and save this connection and go directly to the Add a new dataset panel.
