Clients #

Starburst Galaxy includes the Query editor as a simple client to write and execute SQL statements in all clusters and their configured catalogs.

Many other clients are available and can be connected and used for SQL queries, charts and other visualizations, dashboards and other use cases.

You can view the connection details for a specific cluster by selecting Connection info in the list of clusters.

All connection information is displayed by default. Use the Select client menu to view connection information for a specific client:

Connection info display for a cluster

The dialog displays the user, host, and port information that you need for most client connections.

The user string concatenates the username, provided as email address, and the current role used by the logged in user.

The host is specific for each cluster and includes the account name and cluster name.

The port is 443, as used by default for TLS connections. The certificate used by Starburst Galaxy to secure the connection with TLS is a globally trusted certificate.

Select Trino JDBC as the client to view information for JDBC connections:

Select Starburst ODBC as the client to view information for ODBC connections:

Connection info display for odbc

You may need your username when using ODBC connections.

Tableau and the ODBC driver allow you to download a connection file to simplify the connection process:
