Amazon Aurora Partition Connector

Version 2

 

Intro

Amazon Aurora is a MySQL and PostgreSQL compatible relational database built for the cloud that combines the performance and availability of high-end commercial databases with the simplicity and cost-effectiveness of open source databases. Use the Amazon Aurora Partition connector to efficiently and securely bring in the data from your database based on number of past days provided. Once your data is in Domo, you can provide the transparency with real-time and interactive dashboards to the managers and stakeholders. You can set up alerts to be notified of changes in your key data points, and access all your data in real time, from any device. To learn more about the Amazon Aurora API, visit https://aws.amazon.com/rds/aurora/.

You connect to your Amazon Aurora account in the Data Center. This topic discusses the fields and menus that are specific to the Amazon Aurora Partition connector user interface. General information for adding DataSets, setting update schedules, and editing DataSet information is discussed in Adding a DataSet Using a Data Connector.

Prerequisites

To connect to your Amazon Aurora account and create a DataSet, you must have the following:

  • The username and password you use to log into your database

  • The hostname or IP address of your database server

  • The port number for your database

  • The database name or schema name

 

You can also include the URL where your SSL CA Certificate is located, though this is optional.

Connecting to Your Amazon Aurora Account

This section enumerates the options in the Credentials and Details panes in the Amazon Aurora Partition Connector page. The components of the other panes in this page, Scheduling and Name & Describe Your DataSet, are universal across most connector types and are discussed in greater length in Adding a DataSet Using a Data Connector.

Credentials Pane

This pane contains fields for entering credentials to connect to your Amazon Aurora account. The following table describes what is needed for each field:

Host Enter the hostname or IP address of your database server. Example: db.company.com
Port Enter the port number for your database server.

Once you have entered valid credentials, you can use the same account any time you go to create a new Amazon Aurora Partition DataSet. You can manage connector accounts in the Accounts tab in the Data Center. For more information about this tab, see Managing User Accounts for Connectors.
