Run the following command to install the connector from the root of your project:

npm install --save @latitude-data/databricks-connector

How to configure sources

The sources files must be inside the queries/ folder.

To know how the source hierarchy works, please, visit How to configure sources.


To configure the connection with your Databricks database follow these steps:


Create the source `.yaml` file within the `queries` folder if you haven't already



Add the following code for your Databricks connection

type: databricks
  host: string
  port: number
  path: string
  clientId: string
  token: string
  oauthClientId: string
  oauthClientSecret: string

Replace the details section with your info and save


Done, now you can test your connection


  • Host → The internet address of the Databricks cluster, specifying where the cluster is located online.

  • Path → (Optional) Specifies the location of the workspace or resource on the Databricks host, detailing the specific access path.
  • ClientId → (Optional) An identifier for the application connecting to Databricks, used for authentication purposes.
  • Token → (Optional) A secret key used by the application to authenticate itself to Databricks.
  • OauthClientId → (Optional) An identifier used for OAuth authentication, specifying the application in the OAuth process.
  • OauthClientSecret → (Optional) A secret code used in conjunction with OauthClientId for OAuth authentication, verifying the application’s identity.

Test connection

To test the connection you can:

  1. Create a query .sql in the queries directory that points to a table of your new connection in the FROM clause. See the section SQL Syntax Basics to learn more.
  2. Use the command line to run latitude run query_file_name where query_file_name is the name of your .sql file. This will display the results in your terminal. See the section Running queries to learn more about how to query your data.
