Steampipe Cloud

Overview

Steampipe Cloud is a fully managed SaaS platform for hosting Steampipe instances.

Steampipe exposes APIs and services as a relational database, giving you the ability to write SQL-based queries and controls to explore, assess and report on dynamic data. Steampipe Cloud provides a hosted platform for Steampipe, simplifying setup and operation, accelerating integration, and providing solutions for collaborating and sharing insights.

Getting Started

Sign up

To sign up, go to https://cloud.steampipe.io/, sign up with your Github or Gitlab login and authorize Steampipe Cloud to allow you to login using OAuth.

Steampipe Cloud is currently in limited private preview. If you are not accepted into the preview, you will be added to a waiting list.

Create a Workspace

To get started with Steampipe you must create a Workspace.

Log in to Steampipe Cloud. Since you have no workspaces, you will land on the workspace page. Click New Workspace.

Each workspace must have a handle. The workspace handle is a friendly identifier for your workspace, and must be unique across your workspaces. Enter a handle for your workspace and click Create Workspace.

Setup a Connection

You are now prompted to create a Connection. A Steampipe Connection represents a set of tables for a single data source. Each connection is represented as a distinct Postgres schema. In order to query data, you'll need at least one connection.

Click one of the plugins from the list. Enter the required settings for the plugin. You can verify your credentials using the Test Connection button, and then click Create.

Once a connection is created, you must associate it with your workspace. You will be prompted to add the connection to the workspace that you just created. Click Add to Workspace.

Note that the wizard only prompts for a single connection. You can create and attach additional connections later from the Settings tab for your workspace.

Query

After you create your workspace and connection, you will be redirected to the Query tab for your workspace. You can browse or search the tables and run ad-hoc queries right from the web console!
