What You Can Do in this Quickstart

You can import some of your data into Treasure Data and then explore the Treasure Data features, such as building queries. To do this, you must know the mechanism that you want to use to import your data.

Alternatively, you can explore Treasure Data by accessing a sample database and table that we provide.

Step 1: Sign In

Sign into your Treasure Data account.

Step 2: Import Your Data

To bring your data into Treasure Data, select one of the many mechanisms such as listed here. Tip: if you want to experiment with a simple .csv file, you can select, Web Browser File Upload.

Step 3: Query the Table

Let’s query the sample table. Below is an example query for the sample table.

  1. Click on the “New Query” tab on the left vertical tab inside the Management Console.
  2. Select “sample_db” from the “Database” dropdown menu.
  3. Write a query of your choice against the table named “www_access”. Here is one example query that counts and sorts HTTP requests by their status codes.

       code AS http_status_code,
       COUNT(1) AS num_requests

    run your SQL query

  4. Click the Submit button. You will see the job page where you can track your job’s progress.

  5. When the job is done, the status changes from “running” (in blue text) to “success” (in green text). You can view the results within the Management Console, or alternatively, download the results as CSV/TSV/JSON (refer to the text circle in red).

    view and download your query results
