This page outlines the steps to connect Zoho Analytics to the CData Connect Virtual SQL Server API.


Before you connect, you must first do the following:

  • Connect a data source to your CData Connect account. See Connections for more information.
  • Generate a Personal Access Token (PAT) on the Settings page. Copy this down, as it acts as your password during authentication.
