    The header organizes Starburst Galaxy partners by category. Click a category name to view associated tools.

    Click the tile for the client tool or driver of interest. This opens a dialog showing the connection details you need, customized for your current Galaxy login name and account URL.

    Copy those fields into the connection dialog of your client tool.

    Select cluster

    If you opened your client tile by way of the Admin > Clusters menu, this field shows the current cluster pre-selected. Otherwise, select the cluster of interest from the drop-down menu.

    In some client tiles, this button opens the login window of the selected client in a new browser tab.

    Download connection file

    In some client tiles, this button downloads a client-specific connection file, the use of which is client specific. For example, for Tableau, you can double-click to run the connection file, which opens an installed and licensed Tableau Desktop instance, and installs a connection to Starburst Galaxy.

    Your Galaxy account’s connection URL.


    Your Galaxy account’s connection port.

    If your preferred client is not listed, you can still connect to a Galaxy cluster using the Connection info dialog. Expand the dialog, then copy and paste the required connection details.
