Concepts → External Data Source
An External Data Source is an object in a tenant with defined properties for using a specific connector.
As an object, an external data source has an owner who is typically the user who initially created the object. With Discretionary Access Control (DAC), the object owner can control access to the object.
There are several uses for an external data source:
- Create tables and relationships between tables in a physical schema using the Schema Wizard
- Create a table in a schema
- Define an external session variable
