Connecting Databend to Metabase

Metabase is an open-source business intelligence platform. You can use Metabase to ask questions about your data, or embed Metabase in your app to let your customers explore their data on their own.

The Databend team provides a JDBC driver named Metabase Databend Driver, enabling you to connect to Metabase and dashboard your data in Databend and Databend Cloud. The Metabase Databend Driver is available as open source software under the permissive Apache 2 license. It can be accessed, downloaded, and forked from its GitHub repository, and contributions are also welcome.

Before starting Metabase, you need to add the driver as a plugin to Metabase, so that it can be registered during startup, and then you can have a data source named Databend when you create a connection in Metabase.

The full integration with Metabase, along with a short tutorial, can be found in the Databend Cloud documentation: https://docs.databend.com/visualize/metabase

Please note that the Metabase Databend Driver also works with Databend. For more information, refer to https://databend.rs/doc/integrations/gui-tool/metabase
