Connect Aqua Data Studio to Query Service

This document covers the steps for connecting Aqua Data Studio with Adobe Experience Platform Query Service.


This guide assumes you already have access to Aqua Data Studio and are familiar with how to navigate its interface. More information about Aqua Data Studio can be found in the official Aqua Data Studio documentation.

After installing Aqua Data Studio, you must first register the server. From the main menu, select Server, followed by Register Server.

The Register Server dialog appears. Under the General tab, select PostgreSQL from the list on the left-hand side. In the dialog that appears, provide the following details for the server settings.

  • Name: The name of your connection.
  • Login Name and Password: The login credentials that will be used. The username takes the form of ORG_ID@AdobeOrg.
  • Host and Port: The host endpoint and its port for Query Service. You must use port 80 to connect with Query Service.
  • Database: The database that will be used.

For more information on finding your login credentials, host, port, and database name, please read the credentials guide. To find your credentials, log in to Platform, then select Queries, followed by Credentials.

Select the Driver tab. Under Parameters, set the value as ?sslmode=require

After inputting your connection details, select Test Connection to ensure your credentials work properly. If your connection is successful, select Save to register your server. The connection appears on the dashboard upon successful registration, confirming that you can now connect to the server and view its schema objects.

Now that you have connected to Query Service, you can use the Query Analyzer within Aqua Data Studio to execute and edit SQL statements. For more information on how to write and run queries, please read the running queries guide.
