Connector

The mechanism by which Data Studio accesses a specific data platform, system, or product.

Connecting to your data involves two components that work together:

  • Connectors connect Data Studio to your underlying data. Connecting to your data creates a data source in Data Studio.
  • Data sources represent a particular instance of a connector: for example, a connection to a specific Google Analytics property or view, MySQL table, or Google Sheet. Data sources let you configure the fields and options provided by the connector used to create that connection instance. In addition, the data source gives you a secure way to share information and insights with report viewers who may not be able to directly access the underlying data.
