SAP IQ connection

To access your data in SAP IQ, create a connection asset for it.

SAP IQ is a column-based, petabyte scale, relational database software system used for business intelligence, data warehousing, and data marts. SAP IQ was formerly Sybase IQ.

Create a connection to SAP IQ

To create the connection asset, you need these connection details:

  • Database name
  • Hostname or IP address
  • Port number
  • Username and password
  • SSL certificate (if required by the database server)

For Private connectivity, to connect to a database that is not externalized to the internet (for example, behind a firewall), you must set up a secure connection.

Choose the method for creating a connection based on where you are in the platform

In a catalog
Click Add to catalog > Connection. See Adding a connection asset to a catalog.
