Import Sample Data

This document describes how to import sample data into TiDB Cloud via 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. On the TiDB Cloud console, click Import in the upper right of the pane of the cluster that you want to import data into. The Data Import page displays.

  2. Depending on where the TiDB cluster is hosted, do one of the following:

    • If the TiDB cluster is hosted by AWS, select AWS S3 for Data Source Type, enter the sample data URL s3://tidbcloud-samples/data-ingestion/ in the Bucket URL field, and then select US West (Oregon) for Bucket Region. The sample data bucket is hosted in the US West (Oregon) region for AWS.

    • If the TiDB cluster is hosted by GCP, select Google Cloud Storage for Data Source Type, enter the sample data URL gcs://tidbcloud-samples-us-west1 in the Bucket URL field, and then select US-West1 (Oregon) for Bucket Region. The sample data bucket is hosted in the US-West1 (Oregon) for GCP.

  3. For Data Format, select TiDB Dumpling.

  4. For Target Database, enter root in the Username field, and enter the root password you have set when you created the cluster in the Password field.

    Note:

    If you have created a custom user and have the enough permissions, you can also use the name of the newly created user and the corresponding password.

  5. Leave the DB/Tables Filter field blank.

  6. Click Import. Then the sample data starts being imported.

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

You can run some queries 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;
