Connecting to Databricks

This topic describes how to import data into a Databricks cluster, and how to use Introducing Live Models.

Sisense enables easy and quick access to databases, tables and views contained within Databricks.

To enable the use of Databricks:

  1. Navigate to the Admin tab > search for and select System Management > click Configuration.
  2. Scroll to the bottom of the page and click Manage Connectors.
  3. In the left pane, click Databricks.
  4. In the right pane, activate the Enabled switch.

To connect to your Databricks cluster, you need to provide a connection string that identifies the Databricks cluster you are connecting to, and that database's credentials. To create a connection string, see Databricks JDBC drivers.

You can then import your data into a Sisense ElastiCube or connect your data to a Sisense Live model.
