Dbeaver Sql Client

SQL clients can be used to connect to Denodo, however they must be configured before use. First, the Denodo JDBC driver needs to be downloaded to the client workstation. Then, the SQL client connection needs to be configured to use the driver. Each SQL client handles this differently.

DBeaver is the U-M recommended SQL client for use with Denodo. Follow the instructions below to configure DBeaver using Kerberos authentication with supplied userid/password (not SSO).

DBeaver is a SQL client software application and a database administration tool. For relational databases it uses the JDBC application programming interface (API) to interact with databases via a JDBC driver. For other databases (NoSQL) it uses proprietary database drivers. It provides an editor.


If you do not want to use DBeaver, there are several other SQL client options for connecting to Denodo:

  • Tableau
  • SQuirrel
  • SQL Workbench
  • DataGrip


  • Oracle SQL Developer does not support the Denodo JDBC driver.
  • Tableau Desktop comes pre-configured with a Denodo connector. To use this connector, specify the Denodo VDP server URI, port and credentials.

  1. Navigate to SQL Editor > New SQL Editor and write your query.

For any tables outside of the database specified in the connection, prefix them with their database name. For example, you specified its_data_insights1 in your connection but you need to query the calendar table from dw_time_and_labor. Your query would look as follows:

SELECT * FROM dw_accounts_receivable.account_tbl
