Connecting Data with Embrace

Connecting Data with Embrace

Version 6.2

About this course

If your company stores source data externally in data warehouses, you can use Embrace to query that data and use ThoughtSpot’s analysis and visualization features, without moving the data into ThoughtSpot. Learn how to create a connection to an external database, edit or re-map the data if needed, and live query the data directly from the data source.

This course also includes a workshop in which you can examine the impact that common changes made to your database table structure after the initial Embrace connection is made have in ThoughtSpot. You will learn how to address these impacts through hands-on exercises.

Topics covered

  • Embrace overview
  • Create a connection and Search data
  • Edit or remap a connection
    • Edit an existing connection
    • Remap a connection
  • Workshop: Handling Database Changes in Embrace

Prerequisites
