    Description of connectivity test

    • If the user-created data source is hosted on an ECS instance in the classic network, network connectivity is not guaranteed when nodes are deployed in the default resource group. We recommend that you use custom resource groups.
    • Connectivity testing is not supported for data sources in VPCs. You can click Complete without testing the connectivity.
