Toad Data Point 5.0 - User Guide

Create Cassandra Connections

Toad allows you to connect to an Apache Cassandra database, a NoSQL data source, to view and query tables.

After creating a connection, see About Business Intelligence and NoSQL Data Sources for more information about this data source.

Note: This feature is available in the Toad Data Point Professional Edition only.

To create a Cassandra connection

  1. Click on the Connections toolbar (ALT+F+N).
  2. Select Apache Cassandra from the Group list.
  3. Enter the connection information in the Create New Connection dialog. Review the following for additional information:

    Host Enter the host server name or IP address.
    Port

    If Use legacy Thrift API is selected, the default is 9160. Otherwise, the default is 9042.

    If different, enter port number.

    Use SSL (CQL API connections only) Select to use SSL to connect to Cassandra.
    Use legacy Thrift API

    Select to connect to a non-CQL-enabled Cassandra version using the legacy Thrift API connection (port 9160).

    Clear this option to use the CQL API connection (port 9042).

    Keyspace Enter the name of the keyspace to use in this connection.
    Username Enter the user name to use when connecting.
    Password

    Enter the password to use when connecting.

    Tip: After connecting, you can set a master password to further secure your connection in Tools | Options| Environment | Security.

    Category (Optional) Select an existing category or create a new one. See Set Connection Categories for more information.

    Note: In NoSQL and Business Intelligence connections, Toad automatically saves the password in the connections.xml file as obfuscated text, as well as in Toad. To add additional password security, use Toad's Master Password feature. See Security Options for more information.

  4. Click Connect to connect immediately while saving the connection information. Optionally, click Save to save the connection without connecting.
  5. Upon creating an initial connection, Toad automatically maps the data source objects. This process runs in the background, and until it is finished, you may experience a delay when attempting to access these objects.

Tips: 

  • Connections are stored in the connections.xml file and can be found by clicking the Application Data Directory link in Help | About.
  • You can specify a proxy server to use for Business Intelligence and NoSQL connections at Tools | Options | Database | Data Services.
