Teradata

Version 24.2.8969


Teradata


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

Prerequisite

Sync requires the terajdbc4.jar driver to connect to your Teradata database. You can download this driver from the Teradata JDBC Driver web page.

Copy the JDBC driver into your libs directory.

  • Microsoft Windows: C:\ProgramData\CData\sync\libs

  • UNIX or Mac OS X: ~/cdata/sync/libs

Add the Teradata Connector

To enable Sync to use data from Teradata, 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 Teradata 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 Teradata connector. For more information about installing new connectors, see Connections.

Authenticate to Teradata

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

  • 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).

CData Sync supports authenticating to Teradata in several ways. Select your authentication method below to proceed to the relevant section that contains the authentication details.

TD2

To connect with TD2 credentials, specify the following properties:

  • Auth Scheme - Select TD2.

  • 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.

LDAP

To connect with LDAP credentials, specify the following properties:

  • Auth Scheme - Select LDAP.

  • 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.

Complete Your Connection

  1. Specify the following properties:

    • Database - Enter the name of your Teradata database.

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

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

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

  3. Click Create & Test to create your connection.
