Connect your data share to your environments and tools

After you create credentials for your data share, you can use those credentials to connect the data share to your own environments or third-party tools that support the Databricks Delta Sharing protocol. View which tools support Delta Sharing.

How you provide the required credentials depends on the tool you’re trying to connect the data share to, so you’ll need to refer to the documentation for that tool.

This is the general format of the information inside each credentials file:

1 2 3 4 {"shareCredentialsVersion":1, "endpoint":"your-endpoint", "bearerToken":"your-bearer-token", "expirationTime":"9999-12-31T23:59:59.999Z"}

your-endpoint and your-bearer-token will be alphanumeric strings, which you’ll copy and paste into your environment or tool. Don’t include the quotation marks around those values.

Add a layer of security to your data share

If you connect a data share directly to your third-party tools, all the product data that’s included in that data share will be available to anyone who has access to that connected data share.

While you can connect a data share directly to your tools that natively support Delta Sharing, we highly recommend that your organization first apply permissions or transformations to the data that are available from the data share. This ensures that your colleagues only have permission to access data that they’re allowed to see.

This will require some technical setup from your end, so we recommend that you reach out to the person in your organization who’s best suited to help do this setup.

There are different instructions depending on the type of application you’re using to connect to the data share. Refer to the Delta Sharing GitHub documentation to implement the Delta Sharing protocol for your application.
