Analytics Links

    +
    The Links flyout in the Analytics Workbench enables you to create, manage, and delete remote links.

    In the Analytics Workbench, you can create remote links. These enable you to access data from outside the local Couchbase cluster.

    A remote link is a link to a remote Couchbase cluster. You can create a remote link to any cluster to which you have access in Couchbase Cloud.

    After you have created a remote link, you must create a dataset on that link to query the data.

    Permissions Required

    To create a remote link to a cluster, a user must have read and write access to all (*) buckets in the cluster. To query a dataset on a remote link, a user must have read access to all (*) buckets in the cluster.

    To access the Links flyout, click the Links button in the Analytics Workbench. The Links flyout is displayed.
