Create a Teradata connection

To access your data stored on a Teradata database, you will need to know the server and database name that you want to connect to, and you must have access credentials. Once you have created a connection to a Teradata database, you can select data from the available tables and then load that data into your app or document.

In Qlik Sense, you connect to a Teradata database through the Add data dialog or the Data load editor.

In QlikView you connect to a Teradata database through the Edit Script dialog.
