Overview

To connect Spotfire clients to an external system, you can use a Connector. Connectors enable you to load and analyze data from, for example, databases and data warehouses.  TIBCO Spotfire® ships with a wide range of Connectors.  The TIBCO Spotfire® Connectors page provides information about supported database versions, data source drivers, and other important requirements, for all data connectors that are available in Spotfire. 

Listed below are a number of Custom Connectors that have been developed to provide functionality or connectivity to a system or database until such time as TIBCO Spotfire® includes an equivalent fully supported Connector.

Azure Databricks

This Connector allows TIBCO Spotfire® users to connect to Azure Databricks using Azure AD Token Authentication or an Azure AD Personal Access Token.  The functionality once connected is identical to the GA TIBCO Spotfire® Apache Spark SQL Connector.

The Connector can be downloaded from TIBCO Exchange.

Azure SQL and Azure Synapse

This Connector allows TIBCO Spotfire® users to connect to Azure SQL or Azure Synapse using Azure AD Token Authentication or an Azure AD Personal Access Token.  The functionality once connected is identical to the GA TIBCO Spotfire® Microsoft SQL Server Connector.

The Connector can be downloaded from TIBCO Exchange.

This Connector allows TIBCO Spotfire® users to import data from Google Sheets, CSV and Excel Files located on Google Drive or Google Shared Drives.

The Connector can be downloaded from TIBCO Exchange.

Microsoft SharePoint Online Files

TIBCO Spotfire® Versions

These Connectors are compatible with TIBCO Spotfire® versions 10.3 through 11.4.  Support for future versions is not guaranteed.  If TIBCO Spotfire® provides a fully supported Connector that matches the functionality provided by one of these Custom Connectors, it is expected that the user will move to using the version shipped with TIBCO Spotfire®.
