Before You Start with Data Gateway

Download and install the required software.

  • Download the latest version of Oracle Analytics Cloud Data Gateway from Oracle Technology Network.

  • (Optional) If you are creating remote connections for analyses and dashboards, download and install the latest Developer Client Tool for Oracle Analytics Cloud from Oracle Technology Network on a Windows machine.

  • If you want to install the legacy version of Remote Data Connector, follow the instructions in Install the Legacy Remote Data Connector.
