1. Connector lists

These lists show all of the sources or destinations that have been created. At the top right of the section there is a button for creating a new source or destination (See Source configuration or Destination configuration for more information). Underneath there are a number of buttons for batch operating on the items as well as filtering and sorting the lists. These actions (Start and Stop for sources and Delete for both sources and destinations) are only available if at least one of the items is selected using the checkbox on the left side of the individual list items. Alternatively a user can click on the Select all checkbox at the left to select all of the items in the list.

2. Connector list item

Each connector has a number of visible properties which we discuss below.

Name

The name that the user associated with the connector when creating it.

Type

The type of connector, for example AWS Redshift or Snowflake.

Status (Sources only)

The operating status of the source connector. The available statuses are:

  • Ready – has been created but is still idle
  • Active – has been activated and able to process data
  • Terminated – has been stopped and is in an idle state again
  • Error – has experienced some error which can be seen in the tooltip upon hover

Creation time

A simple date when the connector was created. Hovering over the date will give more information regarding the creation and last update time.

Action menu

At the far right side of the connector there is a small action menu indicated by three vertical dots. The action menu contains a number of actions for dealing with individual connectors. In addition to the batch actions discussed above, there are also actions for copying and updating sources.
