Connect to a Data Source

After you have completed installation of your Metric Insights instance, you will need to connect to a data source. If you are sourcing data exclusively from Excel or a CSV file, you can skip this step.

  1. If you are sourcing data from a database, follow the following instructions to Establish JDBC connectivity to your data source.
  2. If you are collecting data from a cloud or non-relation databases, review the list of supported Metric Insights Plug-ins and follow the instructions for creating your desired Plug-In.
  3. If you are connecting to a data source for which there is no existing Plug-in, see the following instructions on Creating a RESTful web service to collect data.
