  • DISPLAY NAME: Enter a descriptive name for your connection
  • SQLALCHEMY URI: Copy the Superset SQLAlchemy URI from the Integrations page in RCC and paste it into the SQLALCHEMY URI field.
  • Replace the username/password in the image with your username and API password.
  1. Click Test Connection. If the connection works, you will see a "Connection Looks Good!" message appear.
  2. Click Connect to save the connection

Create a Superset Dataset.

  • Click Add
  • Now that you've created a dataset, you can click on it under Datasets and edit it (under Actions, over on the right) to configure column properties such as whether the column is a metric or dimension or whether it is your time column. See Superset documentation on Creating Your First Dashboard for more details.
