Connect to a ScyllaDB instance
Like many database, ScyllaDB provides user rolenames and passwords for internal authentication. Hackolade currently supports basic authentication (username/password) as well as LDAP.
To connect to a ScyllaDB instance, whether on-premises or Cloud, you need to provide:
- the hosts IP address or DNS name, and port number
- a localDataCenter, if necessary to prevent routing requests to nodes in remote data centers.
In the Advanced tab you may change the default request timeout and specify it in milliseconds.
The documentation on this page indicates: “the timeout settings used on the Cassandra side (*_request_timeout_in_ms in cassandra.yaml) should be taken into account when picking a value for this read timeout. You should pick a value a couple of seconds greater than the Cassandra timeout settings.”
