Adding data source connections

DQO supports integration with different types of data sources. To monitor data quality in DQO, you must first add a data source connection. A data source connection specifies the parameters needed to connect to a database, such as a database location and authentication information. The data source connection information for each data source type may be different. Some data sources use existing database connection APIs (such as ODBC/JDBC), and others have proprietary APIs.

In DQO, you can add a new data source connection through the GUI, command line or DQO shell. For information on the parameters you need to specify, see the document dedicated to each data source.

DQO supports the following types of data sources.
