Creating and editing a data source

To create a new data source in Visual Explorer Connector, click Data source.

Visual Explorer Connector leads to the following user interfaces:

  1. "Select data source mode"
  2. "Select sources"
  3. "Select update mechanism"
  4. "Save data source"

Choose data source mode

In this step, you can select between three different data source modes:

Data source mode Description
"Assets" This mode allows you to create a data source for specific assets from a list of assets.
"Asset Types" This mode allows you to create a data source for all assets of a certain asset type. This mode ensures that the newly connected assets of the selected asset types are continuously included in the data source and synchronized.
"Integrated Data Lake" This mode allows you to create a data source based on data stored in Integrated Data Lake.
"Event" This mode allows you to create a data source from MindSphere Events.
"SDI" This mode allows you to create a data source from SDI query results.

Select data source type
