Vertica Connector

KNIME Vertica database extension version 4.3.0.v202011191336 by KNIME AG, Zurich, Switzerland

This node creates a connection to a Vertica Analytics Platform.
You need to provide the server's hostname (or IP address), the port, and a database name. Login credentials can either be provided directly in the configuration or via credential variables.

This node uses the selected driver's JDBC URL template to create the concrete database URL. Field validation in the dialog depends on whether the (included) tokens referencing them are mandatory or optional in the template.
