Version 23.4.8843


You can use the Cassandra connector from the CData Sync application to capture data from Cassandra and move it to any supported destination. To do so, you need to add the connector, authenticate to the connector, and complete your connection.

Establish a Connection

To allow Sync to use data from Cassandra, you first must establish a connection to Cassandra. Follow these steps to connect Cassandra to your Sync account:

  1. Open the Connections page of the Sync dashboard.

  2. Click Add Connection to open the Select Connectors page.

  3. Click the Sources tab and locate the Cassandra row.

  4. Click the Configure Connection icon at the end of that row. If you do not see the Configure Connection icon, you need to add the connector according to the instructions in Connections.

  5. Enter connection settings on the Settings tab:

    • Connection Name - Enter a connection name of your choice.

    • Server - Enter the host name or IP address that hosts the Cassandra database.

    • Port - Enter the port number for the Cassandra database. The default port value is 9042.

    • Database - Enter the name of your Cassandra database.

    • Auth Scheme - Select the Auth scheme that you want to use for authentication. The default scheme is Basic.

    • User - Enter the username that you use to authenticate to Cassandra.

    • Password - Enter the password that you use to authenticate to Cassandra.

    • Use SSL - Select whether you want to enable Secure Sockets Layer (SSL). The default value is False.

    • Consistency Level - Enter the number of the replicas from which you want to enforce a response before queries are considered a success.

  6. Click Create & Test to create the connection.

  7. Define advanced connection settings on the Advanced tab. (In most cases, though, you should not need these settings.)
