Partner Connect only supports SQL warehouses for AtScale connections.

Before you connect to AtScale manually, you must have the following:
An AtScale account.
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 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.
