  1. You can access the Data Sources page by clicking on the Data Sources Tab which is the third icon on the sidebar, right below the Dashboard Tab. Once there, you’ll notice that the Main UI screen on the Data Sources page is divided into two side-by-side tabs which allow you to access your configured and explore new Data Sources.

  2. The left tab is the My Connectors tab, and it opens a carousel of all the forward connectors configured by you so far.

  3. The search box inside the My Connectors tab allows you to quickly find a specific forward connector configured by you.

  4. The sort dropdown inside the My Connectors tab allows you to quickly sort the forward connectors configured by you alphabetically.

  5. Below the search and sort boxes the main UI screen inside the My Connectors tab contains a carousel of individual cards for each of the forward connectors configured by you. Each card gives a brief description of the data source it pertains to.

  6. The image::data-icon1.png icon on each connector card represents the total different types of data pipelines available on DataChannel to connect to different API End points in the Data Source.

  7. The image::icon2.png icon on each connector card represents the number of data pipelines configured by you for that particular Data Source.

  8. The + icon on each connector card allows you to add new pipelines for that particular Data Source.

  9. The right tab is the Explore Connectors tab, and it opens a carousel of all the forward connectors supported by DataChannel. This includes all the connectors configured by you as well as new Data Sources that you can explore and add.

  10. The layout of the Explore Connectors tab is exactly the same as the layout of the My Connectors tab.

  11. To familiarize yourself with the complete process of adding a new pipeline on the DataChannel Console, it is recommended that you watch the video Tutorial-Steps to configure a Data pipeline.
