Managing your connectors

Apache Drill supports three types of data queries:
- Folders and files
- Views with custom schema definition
- Using Hive metastore for getting schema
Zoomdata supports only Hive metastore and custom schema.
On the Charts page, you can:
- Edit Global Default Settings
- Select the Standard and, if available, Custom chart styles to be used with the data source
- Set default parameters (group, sub-group, colors, sorting, and so on) for each chart style
Select Finish to save your changes. Once your data connection has been established, it is listed in My Data Sources.
