Connections Overview

An Ascend Connection is a way to connect to a data store and reuse the same connection to read and/or write from. For example, a Connection can be made to a Postgres Database and developers can then use that same connection to ingest several tables through Read Connectors or write tables into the Postgres Database as Write Connectors.


A connection can be set to Read Only, Write Only, or Read and Write to determine what the connection's capabilities are. Note that depending on what data store is being used, both read and write capabilities may not be available inside of Ascend. For specific details on which data stores are supported and the configuration required, please refer to each individual connection's documentation page.
