Credentials are required to authenticate the connection to a Source and Destination.

Your credentials are saved securely in the platform and can be used when connecting to Sources and Destinations which require the same authentication.

When you configure a new Source or Destination, you can either add new Credentials, or use saved Credentials valid for your Source or Destination type. For example, you can reuse the same Credentials for multiple tables within a BigQuery dataset.

In the Credentials settings page you can:

  • View the list of saved Credentials.
  • Create new Credentials.
  • Update, rename, or remove existing Credentials.


Permissions and credential parameters

The required Credential parameters depend on the Source or Destination type.
For example, the credential parameters can include: host, port, username, and password.

Before configuring Credential parameters, you must configure a user or service account with permissions to read or egress datapoints.

These parameters are listed in the individual Source and Destination pages.
