The recommended connector library is teradatasqlalchemy.

The connection string for Teradata looks like this:


ODBC Driver

There's also an older connector named sqlalchemy-teradata that requires the installation of ODBC drivers. The Teradata ODBC Drivers are available here:

Here are the required environment variables:

export ODBCINI=/.../teradata/client/ODBC_64/odbc.ini
export ODBCINST=/.../teradata/client/ODBC_64/odbcinst.ini

We recommend using the first library because of the lack of requirement around ODBC drivers and because it's more regularly updated.
