Census is a reverse ETL platform that syncs customer data from you lakehouse into downstream business tools such as Salesforce, HubSpot, and Google Ads.
You can integrate your Databricks SQL warehouses and Databricks clusters with Census.
To connect your Databricks workspace to Census using Partner Connect, see Connect to reverse ETL partners using Partner Connect.
Partner Connect only supports SQL warehouses for Census. To connect a cluster to Census, connect to Census manually.
This section describes how to connect an existing SQL warehouse or cluster in your Databricks workspace to Census manually.
For Databricks SQL warehouses, you can connect to Census using Partner Connect to simplify the experience.
Before you connect to Census manually, you need the following:
A cluster or SQL warehouse in your Databricks workspace.
The connection details for your cluster or SQL warehouse, specifically the Server Hostname, Port, and HTTP Path values.
A Databricks personal access token.
As a security best practice when you authenticate with automated tools, systems, scripts, and apps, Databricks recommends that you use OAuth tokens or personal access tokens belonging to service principals instead of workspace users. To create tokens for service principals, see Manage tokens for a service principal.
To connect to Census manually, follow Databricks in the Census documentation.
