Before you configure a node to synchronize data between data sources, you must add the data sources to DataWorks. This way, you can configure the data sources as the source and destination of the node in subsequent operations.

Prerequisites

Before you add a data source, make sure that the following operations are performed:
  • Prepare data sources: A source and a destination are prepared.
  • Create and authorize an account: An account that is used to access the data sources is created.

Precautions

DataWorks provides workspaces in basic mode and standard mode for you to develop data. A workspace in basic mode does not isolate the development environment from the production environment. A workspace in standard mode isolates the development environment from the production environment.

If you use a workspace in standard mode, you must separately add data sources to the development environment and production environment.

Add a data source (source)

To add a source, you must configure information such as the network connection type and the access account and password as planned. The following topics describe the data sources that can be used as the sources for real-time single-table synchronization and the configurations required for these data sources:

Add a data source (destination)

The following topics describe the data sources that can be used as the destinations for real-time single-table synchronization and the configurations required for these data sources:

What to do next

After you add data sources, you can create and run a data synchronization node to synchronize data from the source to the destination. For more information, see Configure and manage a real-time data synchronization node.
