To connect a new data source, select Data from the top navigation bar, click + Add Data Source, then select your data source type from the list. Fill out the connection form then click Connect.

Direct connection is the easiest method as it simply requires you to whitelist Chartio’s IP address ( and enter your connection details on the connection page.

Aside from providing connection details, some data sources require a schema name to reflect properly. If you’re unsure of what schema you should use, you can run the following query to find out which schema to reflect after you’ve connected the data source.

Most direct connections are straightforward, but some require a few extra connection steps. Check out the specific data source page for possible special instructions.
