Version 24.1.8910


You can use the Greenplum connector from the CData Sync application to capture data from Greenplum 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 Greenplum, you first must establish a connection to Greenplum. Follow these steps to connect Greenplum 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 Greenplum 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 the IP address of the Greenplum server.

    • User - Enter the username that you use to authenticate to your Greenplum account.

    • Password - Enter the password that you use to authenticate to your Greenplum account.

    • Kerberos KDC - Enter the Kerberos Key Distribution Center (KDC) service that you use to authenticate.

    • Kerberos Realm - Enter the Kerberos realm that you use to authenticate.

    • Kerberos SPN - Enter the service principal name (SPN) for the Kerberos Domain Controller. The SPN is composed of the service and host of the Greenplum Kerberos principal (for example, ServiceName/MyHost@DomainName)

    • Port - Enter the port number for the Greenplum server. The default port value is 5432.

    • Database - Enter the name of the Greenplum database to which you want to connect.

    • Kerberos Keytab File - Enter the path to your keytab file.

    • Kerberos Ticket Cache - Enter the full path to an MIT Kerberos credential cache file. Sync uses the specified cache file to obtain the Kerberos ticket that is required to connect to Greenplum.

  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.)
