Version 24.1.8910


You can use the Teradata connector from the CData Sync application to move data from any supported source to the Teradata 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 Teradata, you first must establish a connection to Teradata. Follow these steps to connect Teradata 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 Destinations tab and locate the Teradata 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.

    • Data Source - Enter either the Teradata server name, the database computer (DBC) username, or the Teradata Director Program Id (TDPID).

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

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

    • Auth Scheme - Select the authentication scheme. TD2 is the default scheme.

    • Database - Enter the name of your Teradata database.

      Note: If you do not specify a database, CData Sync connects to your default database.

    • Port - Enter the port number for your Teradata server. The default port value is 1025.

  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.)
