Using Airbyte with bit.io

Once we've set up our bit.io database as source lets proceed to configure a connection. A connection is a configuration for syncing data between a source and a destination.

In this example we'll be connecting our bit.io database to the e2e-test destination, tough you could use any destination from their catalog.

Create a new connection by going to Connections on the sidebar, then click on "New connection" button.
