Limitations and Requirements


During normal selection or import of an entire table, you may encounter an error indicating a problem with a specific column. Since some tables require filtering based on a particular column, data from them can only be ingested using custom SQL statements. In this case, the problematic column can be used as a filter in the WHERE clause of a custom SQL statement to ingest the table.

  • For more information, please consult the CData driver documentation for the specific table.

  • For more information on using custom SQL, see Create Dataset with SQL.


For filtering date columns, this connection type supports a set of literal functions on dates. You can use these to reduce the volume of data extracted from the database using a custom SQL query. For more information, see the pg_dateliteralfunctions.htm page in the driver documentation for this connection type.

  • SuiteQL data model is supported. For more information, see

  • OAuth 2.0 authentication is required.

    • You have to create an OAuth 2.0 client in NetSuite and register the created OAuth 2.0 client in the Trifacta Application. For more information, see OAuth 2.0 for NetSuite.

    • You cannot create OAuth 2.0 connections via API.

  • Due to permissions limitations in the NetSuite account, you may not be able to import some tables.
