The Integration With SQL databases course is designed to walk a Dataiku DSS administrator through the process of configuring a connection between DSS and a relational database.


Throughout the course, we will use a PostgreSQL database connection for illustration. Before going through the hands-on lessons, you will have a chance to grasp relevant key concepts by watching a short video.

In the hands-on lesson of this course, you will create and configure your database, establish a connection between the database and DSS, and then create a DSS dataset for tables in the database.



Learning Objectives

At the end of the Integration With SQL Databases course, you will be able to:

1 - Set up and use an SQL connection within DSS

2 - Recognize when to leverage the SQL execution engine for its computational advantages

3 - Know the levels of support that Dataiku provides for connections to particular databases
