We’ve recently updated the experience for Data Sources and Alert Destinations (currently only available in Redash Preview:
With this, some discussion related to the Test Connection feature appeared in #3470 so I’m bringing it up to the forum.
My suggestion for this is to automatically run the connection test when creating a data source, then lead to 2 scenarios:
- Connection success: Inform the user with a notification and save it;
- Connection failure: Show the error with a dialog and offer to either Save it anyway or go back to edit setting data;
Now that we have a dialog with Steps for Data Source creation we can alternatively add a new step for this.
