Click on "Set up source" button and you'll see the connection status.

Using Airbyte with

Once we've set up our 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 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.


You now need to select or create a data source, use the source created above, then click on the "Use existing source" button.


Select the destination for this connection and configure accordingly.


Airbyte will read the schema from your database and let you configure the select the tables to sync, select frequency and sync mode, configure according to your needs, then click on the "Set up connection" button.


You'll get redirected to connection status page and see the details of first task triggered.


Once sync is complete you'll see the details of the synced records.
