Create a Couchbase source connection in the UI

The Couchbase connector is in beta. See the Sources overview for more information on using beta-labeled connectors.

Source connectors in Adobe Experience Platform provide the ability to ingest externally sourced data on a scheduled basis. This tutorial provides steps for creating an Couchbase source connector using the Platform user interface.

Getting started

This tutorial requires a working understanding of the following components of Platform:

If you already have a valid Couchbase connection, you may skip the remainder of this document and proceed to the tutorial on configuring a dataflow.

Gather required credentials

In order to authenticate your Couchbase source connector, you must provide values for the following connection property:

The connection string used to connect to your Couchbase instance. The connection string pattern for Couchbase is Server={SERVER}; Port={PORT};AuthMech=1;CredString=[{\"user\": \"{USER}\", \"pass\":\"{PASS}\"}];. For more information on acquiring a connection string, refer to the documentation on Couchbase connection.

Connect your Couchbase account

Once you have gathered your required credentials, you can follow the steps below to link your Couchbase account to Platform.

Log in to Adobe Experience Platform and then select Sources from the left navigation bar to access the Sources workspace. The Catalog screen displays a variety of sources for which you can create an account with.

You can select the appropriate category from the catalog on the left-hand side of your screen. Alternatively, you can find the specific source you wish to work with using the search option.

Under the Databases category, select Couchbase. If this is your first time using this connector, select Configure. Otherwise, select Add data to create a new Couchbase connector.


The Connect to Couchbase page appears. On this page, you can either use new credentials or existing credentials.

New account

If you are using new credentials, select New account. On the input form that appears, provide a name, an optional description, and your Couchbase credentials. When finished, select Connect to source and then allow some time for the new connection to establish.


Existing account

To connect an existing account, select the Couchbase account you want to connect with, then select Next in the top-right corner to proceed.


Next steps

By following this tutorial, you have established a connection to your Couchbase account. You can now continue on to the next tutorial and configure a dataflow to bring data into Platform.
