section 0Before You Begin

This 10-minute tutorial shows you how to create a connection to Oracle Autonomous Data Warehouse.


As an administrator, you create a connection to Oracle Autonomous Data Warehouse that enables other users to access data sources and to create data sets for their Oracle Data Visualization projects.

Before creating a connection, you must download a client credentials zip file for the Oracle Autonomous Data Warehouse instance. The file contains security-related files, including a wallet file with certificates for Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) communication between Oracle Autonomous Data Warehouse and Oracle Analytics Cloud. SSL is the only type of connection allowed to Oracle Autonomous Data Warehouse.
