Import Sample Data

This document describes how to import sample data into TiDB Cloud via the UI. The sample data used is the system data from Capital Bikeshare, released under the Capital Bikeshare Data License Agreement. Before importing the sample data, you need to have one TiDB cluster.

  1. Open the Import page for your target cluster.

    1. Log in to the TiDB Cloud console and navigate to the Clusters page of your project.

    2. Click the name of your target cluster to go to its overview page, and then click Import in the left navigation pane.

  2. Configure the source data information.

    • AWS
    • GCP

    On the Import page:

    • For a Dedicated Tier cluster, click Import Data in the upper-right corner.
    • For a Serverless Tier cluster, click the import data from S3 link above the upload area.

    Fill in the following parameters:

    • Data format: select SQL File.
    • Bucket URI: enter the sample data URI s3://tidbcloud-samples/data-ingestion/
    • Role ARN: enter arn:aws:iam::385595570414:role/import-sample-access

    If the region of the bucket is different from your cluster, confirm the compliance of cross region. Click Next.

    If your TiDB cluster is hosted by GCP, click Import Data in the upper-right corner, and then fill in the following parameters:

    • Data format: select SQL File.
    • Bucket URI: enter the sample data URI gs://tidbcloud-samples-us-west1.

    If the region of the bucket is different from your cluster, confirm the compliance of cross region. Click Next.

  3. Add the table filter rules if needed. For the sample data, you can safely skip this step and click Next.

  4. On the Preview page, confirm the data to be imported and then click Start Import.

The data import process will take 5 to 10 minutes. When the data import progress shows Finished, you have successfully imported the sample data and the database schema to your database in TiDB Cloud.

Once the cluster finishes the data importing process, you will get the sample data in your database.

After connecting to the cluster, you can run some queries in your terminal to check the result, for example:

  1. Get the trip records starting at "12th & U St NW":

    use bikeshare;
    
    select * from `trips` where start_station_name='12th & U St NW' limit 10;
