Databricks


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

Add the Databricks Connector

To enable Sync to use data from Databricks, you first must add the connector, as follows:

  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 Databricks row.

  4. Click the Configure Connection icon at the end of that row to open the New Connection page. If the Configure Connection icon is not available, click the Download Connector icon to install the Databricks connector. For more information about installing new connectors, see Connections.

Authenticate to Databricks

After you add the connector, you need to set the required properties.
