This article describes how to use MicroStrategy Workstation with a Databricks cluster or a Databricks SQL warehouse (formerly Databricks SQL endpoint).
Before you connect to MicroStrategy 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. See Generate a personal access token.
As a security best practice, when authenticating with automated tools, systems, scripts, and apps, Databricks recommends you use access tokens belonging to service principals instead of workspace users. To create access tokens for service principals, see Manage access tokens for a service principal.
To connect to MicroStrategy manually, do the following:
Start MicroStrategy Workstation.
In the navigation bar, in the Analysis area, next to Dossiers, click the plus (Create a new dossier) icon.
In the Untitled Dossier window, in the Datasets panel, click New Data. If the Datasets pane is not visible, in the navigation bar, click the dataset (Click to Open Datasets Panel) icon.
