Adding Additional Warehouses

You will typically connect your warehouse to Monte Carlo while you follow the on-screen onboarding wizard. If you have more than one data warehouse in your environment, you will be able to connect additional warehouses to Monte Carlo once initial onboarding is complete. Your dashboard will then provide unified access to all tables in all warehouses.

📘

Have more than 3,000 tables in your new warehouse?

You might need to adjust the capacity of your data collector to support the increased load. Please consult with your Monte Carlo success team.

To connect Monte Carlo to a warehouse after initial onboarding had been completed, follow these steps:

  1. Ensure that Monte Carlo's data collector has network connectivity to the warehouse.
  2. Create a read-only service account with the appropriate permissions on your data warehouse. See detailed instructions in our dedicated guides for Snowflake, BigQuery and Redshift.
  3. Set your service account credentials on Monte Carlo using the CLI.

📘

Please allow up to 24 hours for a newly added warehouse to take effect

It may take 12-24 hours for tables from a newly added warehouse to appear in Catalog and Pipelines

Setting credentials for a new warehouse using the CLI

You will provide connection details using Monte Carlo's CLI:

  1. Please follow this guide to install and configure the CLI.
  2. Please use one of the commands below to connect Monte Carlo with your warehouse.

👍

Please give your warehouse a meaningful name

Please use the name parameter to give your new warehouse a friendly display name. This name will be used in Monte Carlo's UI.
