  1. Open the Connections page of the CData Connect dashboard.

  2. Click + Add Connection in the upper-right corner.

  3. Type Bing Search into the search field, then click the data source name.

  4. On the Basic Settings tab of the new connection, enter a connection name or keep the default name.

  5. Enter the API Key. To obtain the API key, sign into Microsoft Cognitive Services and register for the Bing Search APIs.
