Data Source Documentation

DataStation is an open-source data IDE for developers. It allows you to easily build graphs and tables with data pulled from SQL databases, logging databases, metrics databases, HTTP servers, and all kinds of text and binary files. Need to join or munge data? Write embedded scripts as needed in Python, JavaScript, Ruby, R, or Julia. All in one application.

A data source is a definition of an external connection. You must fill out a data source for external SQL servers like MySQL or PostgreSQL so you can query them in a SQL panel.

With Server

A data source can be definied as being proxied through an SSH tunnel by checking the With Server option. Once selected, you will be prompted to pick from one of the SSH Connections you set up previously.
