Import data from Singlestore

If you have your data stored in Singlestore Cloud Database, then you can easily import your data into Zoho Analytics for reporting & analysis. You can setup periodic schedules to fetch the latest data automatically from your Singlestore database. Report loading time will depend on the amount of data stored in Zoho Analytics.

1. Preamble: Why should I allowlist Zoho Analytics IP addresses and How do I do it? 

It is mandatory that you allowlist Zoho Analytics IP addresses before you setup the import process.  This is important because Snowflake will allow Zoho Analytics to access the data only after you allowlist these IP addresses. 

To allowlist Zoho Analytics IP, go to Singlestore Home page > Firewall.

2. How do I import data from the Singlestore database?

3. How can I edit the setup?

You can edit the import setup anytime by following the steps below.

  • Open the workspace.
  • Click the Data Sources tab from the left bar. 
  • All data sources for this workspace will be listed. Click the Singlestore data source that you want to edit. 
  • The Data Sources page will open. Click the Edit Connection link.
  • Modify the settings as needed and click Save. The connection details will be saved.

4. How long does it take for the data to be imported into Zoho Analytics? 

After setup, you might have to wait sometime for the initial fetch to happen. This depends upon the amount of data to be imported into Zoho Analytics and also the response time of your Singlestore server. You will receive an email notification once the import is complete. Please note that, if you access the workspace before the initial fetch, it will not display any data.​

5. Can I import data from Views created in Singlestore (apart from Tables) into Zoho Analytics?

Yes, you can import data from Tables as well as Views available in your Singlestore database into your Zoho Analytics workspace.

6. Will foreign keys defined between my tables in the Singlestore database be linked in Zoho Analytics as well? 

When importing multiple tables, the foreign keys defined between the tables in Singlestore database will be linked in Zoho Analytics. The foreign keys will be created as Look-up columns in Zoho Analytics. 

If you import data from one table at a time (choosing single table option) then the foreign keys will not be defined. However, you can manually link the tables in Zoho Analytics using the Look-up column feature. Click here to learn about the Look-up column feature.

7. Can I change the data type of the columns imported in Zoho Analytics? 

Yes, you can change the data type of the columns imported into Zoho Analytics. However it is necessary that the data type of your column is compatible with the data type of the column in your Singlestore database for successful data synchronizations. It is always recommended that you change the data type in both your Singlestore database as well as your Zoho Analytics workspace.

8. I have connected to a database and imported a few tables into Zoho Analytics. Can I add more tables from the same source to the existing connection?

Note: In case you change the schedule interval while importing the tables, the same intervals will be applied to already imported tables as well.

9. Can I import data from Singlestore database into an existing table in Zoho Analytics?

Yes, you can import data into an existing table if you are importing from the same source database as the imported table.
