Connecting to Data Using Workbench 4

Version 21

 

Businesses have spent billions of dollars on legacy on-premise data centers. But the data they hold isn’t easily accessible to the decision makers who need it most. To overcome that challenge, Domo developed Workbench, a secure, client-side solution for uploading your on-premise data to Domo.

Use Workbench 4 to routinely upload data from external DataSets (ODBC, CSV, Microsoft Excel, Jira, QuickBooks, XML, and JSON) to Domo where you can create KPI cards based on the existing data. You can also secure network communication using a proxy server, manage scheduled jobs, add columns based on calculations, transform columns using regular expressions, and much more.

Important: As of April 28, 2018, both Workbench 2 and 3 have been discontinued. If you have any oustanding Workbench 2 or 3 jobs, you will need to migrate these to Workbench 4.6. This comes with many added benefits and significant improvements to the UI experience.  These benefits include heightened security, newer libraries and memory fixes, support for XML and JSON datatypes, and Workbench 4 help from the Domo Support team. 


Feel free to reach out directly to Support where you can get one-on-one help with upgrading your Workbench instance to the latest version. For information about migrating to Workbench 4, see Migrating to Workbench 4 from Previous Versions.
