How to use a sample production database to test the Castodia add-on?

Testing the Castodia add-on

If you don't have your own database, or simply want to ensure that the add-on is working on your device, using a sample database is a quick and simple method to test the Castodia add-on.

To test your add-on with a sample database, follow the steps below:

  1. Create a new Google Sheet.
  2. In the toolbar section, click on "Add-Ons" to access the Castodia Database Connector.
  3. You will see two options as you hover over the add-on: launch and settings. Click "Settings."
  4. You will see the Database Setup area, where you will be able to use either a sample or an internal database to test the Castodia add-on.
  5. Click "Use demo credentials" to receive a sample database. A query will pop up in a grey box below the buttons, consisting of all database properties.
  6. Click the "Test" button to run the database and verify your credentials.
  7. A green notification indicates the add-on was successfully installed. A pink notification indicates that there may be an issue with the installation. If that is the case, please reach out to our support team.
  8. Lastly, you have the option to either save the sample database or cancel it and set up your internal organization's database.

And that's it! Of course, this dataset has no value to your own organization, so make sure to check out our video on how to connect your internal Postgres database.
