Persisted Data Source Creation Tutorial

Audience: Data Owners

Content Summary: Unlike all other data sources, Persisted data sources do not retrieve data from a designated back-end storage technology. Instead, Data Owners can upload blobs to Persisted data sources (via the UI or API Calls), and Immuta handles the blob storage.

This guide outlines how to configure a Persisted data source in Immuta. To explore data source creation guides for other storage technologies, see the Object-backed and Query-backed guides.

Persisted Data Source Creation

The only configuration option for Persisted data sources is the data format. Specifying the data format here allows you to create masking policies for the data source.
