SSH Tunneling

  1. Turn on feature flag

    • Change SSH_TUNNELING to True
    • If you want to add more security when establishing the tunnel we allow users to overwrite the SSHTunnelManager class here
    • You can also set the SSH_TUNNEL_LOCAL_BIND_ADDRESS this the host address where the tunnel will be accessible on your VPC
  2. Create database w/ ssh tunnel enabled

    • With the feature flag enabled you should now see ssh tunnel toggle.
    • Click the toggle to enables ssh tunneling and add your credentials accordingly.
      • Superset allows for 2 different type authentication (Basic + Private Key). These credentials should come from your service provider.
  3. Verify data is flowing

    • Once SSH tunneling has been enabled, go to SQL Lab and write a query to verify data is properly flowing.
