Google Data Fusion

This page outlines the steps to install and configure the CData Connect connector for Google Data Fusion. After installation, Google Data Fusion can pull data from sources that you have connected to your CData Connect account.


Before you can configure and use Google Data Fusion with CData Connect, you must first connect a data source to your CData Connect account. See Connections for more information.

You must also generate a Personal Access Token (PAT) on the Settings page. Copy this down, as it acts as your password during authentication.
