Manage the Apache Phoenix Connector
The Composer Apache Phoenix connector lets you access the data available in your Apache Phoenix storage using the Composer client. The Composer Apache Phoenix connector supports Apache Phoenix version 4.7 and Apache Phoenix Query Server 4.7. Apache Phoenix v4.5 requires a separate download. To obtain a connector for Apache Phoenix 4.4, contact Technical Support.
Before you can establish a connection from Composer to Apache Phoenix, a Composer connector server for it needs to be installed, configured and enabled. See Manage Connectors and Connector Servers for general instructions and Connect to Apache Phoenix for details specific to the Apache Phoenix and Apache Phoenix Query Server connectors.
After the connector has been set up, you can create data source configurations that specify the necessary connection information and identify the data you want to use. See Manage Data Source Configurations for more information. After data sources are configured, they can be used to create dashboards and visuals from your data. See Create Dashboards.
