How do you change how Fivetran connects to your database?
- Pause the database connection.
- Click the Setup tab.
- Click Edit connection details.
- Select the new connection method option, Connect directly or Connect via an SSH Tunnel.
- If selecting Connect via an SSH Tunnel, fill out the details of your SSH tunnel.
- Click Save & Test.
- Unpause the connection.
Switching the connection method should not trigger a re-sync nor does it need a re-sync. We will continue to run incremental syncs as normal.
If you decide to connect through an SSH tunnel, make sure it is set up properly with the correct IPs whitelisted so that the connection does not encounter any errors.
