Siren Platform User Guide

Working with JDBC datasources

Siren Investigate can analyze data by directly querying remote JDBC datasources using the Siren Federate plugin.

To create dashboards on JDBC datasources you must:

  • Prepare the Federate plugin to connect to your datasource.
  • Configure the connection to the datasource from Siren Investigate.
  • Create virtual indices for your tables.

You can then configure index patterns on your virtual indices, display them in Discover and configure dashboards and visualizations for the supported aggregations. For more information, see the supported aggregations section in Connector APIs.

For more information on using external JDBC datasources, see Siren Federate.

Neo4j datasources

Neo4j is a graph database, and does not serve data in the way that a conventional relational database does. However, Siren Investigate interacts with Neo4j datasources through the JDBC connector. For more details, see Integrating Neo4j data.
