Data Source

A data source is a logical object that represents the database where your source data is stored.

To learn what databases you can integrate with GoodData Cloud Native (GoodData.CN), see Supported Databases.

The physical data model (PDM) is stored under the data source entity. The PDM consists of:

  • Tables / views
  • Columns
  • Primary keys
  • Foreign keys

The logical data model is mapped to the PDM. This enables you to use logical entities (such as facts and attributes) when creating insights.
