This article will explain you about the steps involved in adding a source.



Add Sources and Source type 

The above screen will appear when the user has clicked on the Imports Sub option under the Data garden tab. By default, all the sources the user has imported will appear in the widgets.

Before you know about how to add a source. You should be aware of the the functionality of the buttons, widgets and look of the screen.

The import screen will have three buttons:

  • Sources – This is a default selection where all the active/inactive widgets will be displayed.
  • Active – Here all the active widgets will be displayed.
  • Inactive – All the inactive sources will be displayed.

The user is free to change the position of widgets by clicking on the edit dashboard button and can drag and drop anywhere. After the changes were made, just click on the save dashboard button. In this case there is only one source added so it is showing the number 1.


Now, Let’s learn about how a new source can be added to the Data garden. The User can import data from various sources by clicking on the plus icon which is found on the top left corner of the page.

When you click on the plus icon a carousel pops up. The carousel will have two vertically aligned tabs namely:


File Import – By using this option the user can import the data source file. This will again have three sub options like

  • Manual uploads files
  • Automatically upload by SFTP
  • Automatically upload by file storage


These are the steps involved in adding a source.
