    Datasource Types in db_class

    Ryan Stacklin

      Hello!

       

      I have a view that uses the Tableau Postrgresql repository database (workgroup) to show the types of data sources we use (e.g. Oracle, Redshift, Excel, csv, etc.)  These are listed in the "db_class" field in the "data_connections" table.  There are a few values that I can't define and I hope someone knows what they are and/or where they come from.  They are:

      EXCEL-DIRECT (this is in contrast the the "excel" type that also exists)

      TEXTSCAN


      Do you know to what these refer?  Any information about them would be good.  Support could not give me the answers.  It would be great if you could.


      Thanks!
