Druid connector#

The Druid connector allows querying an Apache Druid database from Trino.

Requirements#

To connect to Druid, you need:

• Druid version 0.18.0 or higher.

• Network access from the Trino coordinator and workers to your Druid broker. Port 8082 is the default port.

Configuration#

Create a catalog properties file that specifies the Druid connector by setting the connector.name to druid and configuring the connection-url with the JDBC string to connect to Druid.

For example, to access a database as druid, create the file etc/catalog/druid.properties. Replace BROKER:8082 with the correct host and port of your Druid broker.

connector.name=druid
connection-url=jdbc:avatica:remote:url=http://BROKER:8082/druid/v2/sql/avatica/


You can add authentication details to connect to a Druid deployment that is secured by basic authentication by updating the URL and adding credentials:

connection-url=jdbc:avatica:remote:url=http://BROKER:port/druid/v2/sql/avatica/;authentication=BASIC
connection-user=root


Now you can access your Druid database in Trino with the druiddb catalog name from the properties file.

General configuration properties#

The following table describes general configuration properties for the connector:

Property name

Description

Default value

case-insensitive-name-matching

Match schema and table names case insensitively

False

case-insensitive-name-matching.cache-ttl

1 minute

metadata.cache-ttl

Duration for which metadata, including table and column statistics, is cached

0 (disabled caching)

metadata.cache-missing

Cache the fact that metadata, including table and column statistics, is not available

False

metadata.cache-maximum-size

Maximum number of objects stored in the metadata cache

10000

write.batch-size

1000

join-pushdown.enabled

Enable join pushdown. Equivalent catalog session property is join_pushdown_enabled. Enabling this may negatively impact performance for some queries.

False

Type mapping#

General configuration properties#

The following properties can be used to configure how data types from the connected data source are mapped to Trino data types and how the metadata is cached in Trino.

Property name
