## Connecting DBeaver to your cluster.

You will first need to create a connection to your cluster. Open "General" and right click "Connections", "Create" and click "Connection".


Select the **"Clickhouse"** as your Database and click **"Next"**

DBeaver uses a JDBC connection to connect to your Hydrolix Cluster. Enter the following details:
  • Host: your Hydrolix hostname e.g. myhost.hydrolix.live
  • Port: 443


Next we need to tweak the driver properties a little. Click on the **"Driver Properties"** tab at the top and edit the following settings:
  • compression: false
  • path: /query
  • ssl: true


Finally test your connection by clicking **"Test Connection"** on the bottom left. This should issue a successful connection message like the one below.

🚧

Can't get access or your connection fails?

Have you enabled access to your cluster?
Enabling Access to your platform

You should now be good to go, click "OK" and start querying your Database!
