Delete a Teradata connection

Starting in May 2022, ThoughtSpot rebranded pinboards as Liveboards. For backward compatibility, we currently support internal processes and external methods that use the older naming convention.

Teradata connections can be used in multiple data sources or visualizations. Because of this, you must delete all data sources, answers, and Liveboards that depend on the connection before you can delete it.

Follow these steps to delete an existing Teradata connection:

  1. Click Data in the top navigation bar.

  2. Click the Connections tab in the left navigation bar.

  3. Find the name of the connection.

    • Sort each column: Connection name, Connection type, _Modified (date), or Author.

    • Search on these categories.

  4. Check the box next to the name of the connection you want to delete.

  5. Click Delete.

  6. In the Confirm delete window, click Delete again.

  7. If you attempt to delete a connection with dependent objects, ThoughtSpot blocks the operation. A Cannot delete window appears, with a list of links to dependent objects.

  8. Click the link for each object to either modify it by removing the dependency on the connection, or delete it.

  9. To close the window, click OK.

  10. After you resolve the dependencies, you can delete the table.
