Connecting your data

Canvas supports most popular data warehouses and Postgres to use as a data source.

Data Warehouses

Canvas requires just one data source - your warehouse. Canvas will use this connection to list all the tables and views in your warehouse, and then to query for data when requested. Canvas never accesses data that you don't request, never writes to your warehouse, and never stores your data. You can read more about our security practices here.
Canvas currently supports three data warehouses:
  • Snowflake
  • Redshift
  • Postgres
We're actively adding support for new warehouses as requested by our users. If we don't support your warehouse yet, please send us an email at [email protected].
