Components & sources explorer


Components in CARTO Workflows are, together with the data sources, the available resources to build your analytical workflows. To use these elements, drag and drop them from the Components Explorer to the Designer Panel.
You can find the list of current available components here.

Data Sources

In the Sources explorer you can find all the data sources available via the data warehouse connection that you have selected when creating the workflow. Here you can learn more about how to create your data warehouse connections in CARTO.
In case you are using a service account to connect to Google BigQuery, note that it must have at least “big query. data_owner” permissions in order to edit schemas, create and edit tables, and get information regarding jobs.
It is important to note that currently each workflow can only be associated with one single data warehouse connection and that it is defined at the time of creating the workflow (without being able to modify it afterwards).
If you want to use data that is not available via the data warehouse connection used in the workflow, you always have the possibility to drag and drop files to your workflow at any time which will get imported to your data warehouse via the established connection. Please find the list of supported file formats and size limits here.
