Connect to Arcion

Arcion unlocks the value of transactional and operational data with real-time, distributed change data capture (CDC) that has built-in heterogeneous schema management, high availability (HA), and auto-scaling.

Connect to Arcion using Partner Connect

This section describes how to connect to Arcion using Partner Connect.

Note

Partner Connect only supports Databricks SQL warehouses (formerly Databricks SQL endpoints) for Arcion. To connect Arcion to a Databricks cluster, connect to Arcion manually.

To connect to Arcion using Partner Connect, do the following:

  1. Connect to a data ingestion partner using Partner Connect.

    If you create a new Arcion account, be sure to choose the Arcion Cloud (Beta) option. (Do not choose the self-hosted option.)

    Important

    If you sign in to your organization’s Arcion account, a Replications page may display, listing one or more existing replication entries with the Databricks logo. These entries might contain details for compute resources in workspaces that are separate from yours. If you still want to reuse one of these connections, and you trust the compute resource and have access to it, choose that destination and then skip ahead to Next steps. Otherwise, continue with the following steps.

  2. If you are not on the Replications page, click the Arcion Cloud logo.

  3. On the Replications page, click New.

  4. For the General step, on the Set up a replication page, enter a Name and an optional Description.

  5. Choose a Replication mode and a Write mode.

  6. Click Next.

  7. For the Source step, do one of the following:

    • If a Source page appears, do one of the following:

      • If your target source is not listed:

        2. Click a Connection Type, and then click Continue.

        3. Continue on with the Configure New Connection page steps.

        3. Continue on with the Configure New Connection page steps.

    • If a Configure New Connection page appears, do the following:

      1. Enter the connection details, if they are not already displayed.

      2. Click Continue.

      3. Click Sync Connector.

      4. After the sync succeeds, click Continue.

  8. To specify any non-default extractor settings for this source, do the following:

    1. Select the source, if it is not already selected.

    2. To use an existing extractor, select the Use an extractor check box, and then click the extractor.

    3. To create a new extractor, click New Extractor, specify the extractor’s settings, and then click Save.

  9. Select the source if it is not already selected, and then click Test Connection.

  10. After the connection succeeds, click Continue to Destination.

  11. For the Destination step, select the tile with the Databricks logo and the name of your SQL warehouse. By default, the name of the SQL warehouse is ARCION_ENDPOINT.

    Note

    The connect fails if the SQL warehouse named ARCION_ENDPOINT is not running. See Start, stop, or delete a SQL warehouse.

  14. After the connection succeeds, click Continue to Filter.

  15. For the Filter step, select the schemas, tables, and columns that you want to the destination., and then click Save.

  16. To specify any non-default mapper settings, click Map Tables, specify the settings, and then click Save.
