  • Password: User password used to log in to the Doris cluster.


    Database can be used to distinguish between internal catalog and external catalog. If only the Database name is filled in, the current data source will be connected to the internal catalog by default. If the format is catalog.db, the current data source will be connected to the catalog filled in Database by default, as shown in DBeaver The database tables are also database tables in the connected catalog, so you can use DBeaver's MySQL driver to create multiple Doris data sources to manage different Catalogs in Doris.


    Managing the external catalog connected to Doris through the Database form of catalog.db requires Doris version 2.1.0 and above.

  • internal catalog connect internal catalog

  • external catalog connect external catalog
