Overview

Data Sources invariably require some method of authentication to serve the user their data so that it can be loaded into a Destination Warehouse. This authentication can be as simple as entering a Username and Password combination, others require Access Tokens or calls from the Matillion Data Loader client.

This means some Data Sources require an OAuth to be set up inside Matillion Data Loader. These OAuths are given a unique name by the user which can then be used inside the Add Pipeline wizard to reference a particular OAuth configuration. This means it is possible to save multiple OAuths for different accounts of the same Data Source platform (e.g. Salesforce) and then use each accordingly in different Pipelines.

To reach the Manage OAuth dialog navigate from the Matillion Data Loader client: Manage → Source OAuths.
