To get started using Data Warehouse, verify that you have the following in place:
- A GoodData platform account. If you are already accessing the GoodData Portal, you need these credentials in your Data Warehouse implementation.
- Data Warehouse-enabled authorization token. Contact GoodData Customer Support to enhance your existing project authorization token to enable the creation and management of your Data Warehouse instances.
- Application access. This document covers Java-based graphical database client tools such as SQuirrel SQL and GoodData's CloudConnect Designer application. You can also connect to Data Warehouse programmatically from Java, JRuby, or other Java-based languages and platforms.
- (Optional) GoodData project as a target. If you plan to load the data from Data Warehouse into the GoodData platform, you must have the Administrator role for at least one GoodData project. For more information on GoodData projects, see Project Hierarchy.
