Before you configure a real-time sync node to synchronize data from a data source to the Kafka data source, you must add both data sources to DataWorks for subsequent source and destination configurations.

Prerequisites

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

Precautions

DataWorks provides workspaces in basic mode and standard mode. 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 source MySQL data source

To add a source MySQL data source, you must configure information such as the network connection type and the access account and password as planned. For more information about how to add a source MySQL data source, see Add a MySQL data source.

Add a source Oracle data source

To add a source Oracle data source, you must configure information such as the network connection type, the account, and the password as planned. For more information, see Configure data sources for data synchronization from Oracle.

Add a source PolarDB for MySQL data source

To add a source PolarDB for MySQL data source, you must configure information such as the network connection type and the access account and password as planned. For more information about how to add a source PolarDB for MySQL data source, see Configure a PolarDB connection.

If the connectivity test fails when you add a PolarDB for MySQL data source, follow the instructions described in What do I do if the PolarDB data source cannot be connected? to handle the exception.

Add a destination Kafka data source

For information about how to add a destination Kafka data source, see Add a Kafka data source.

What to do next

After you add data sources, you can create and run a sync solution to synchronize data from the source data source to the destination data source.

For more information, see Create and configure a sync solution.
