SSH Connections

An SSH connection is all the configuration needed to connect to a server running SSH. Once a connection is set up, it can be used in file panels, HTTP panels, and database panels to access remote data.

You can connect using either a username/password combination or an SSH private key file.

Basic SSH connection


DataStation picks a default value for the Username and Private Key fields if the field is left blank.

The default value for Username is the current system username, i.e. $USER on Linux and macOS.

The default value for Private Key is the first among these 3 files that exists: ~/.ssh/id_rsa, ~/.ssh/id_dsa, ~/.ssh/id_ed25519.
