SSH tunneling

Metabase can connect to some databases by first establishing a connection to a server in between Metabase and a data warehouse, then connecting to the data warehouse using that connection as a bridge.

You can connect your Metabase Cloud or self-hosted instance to a database using Secure Socket Layer (SSL) encryption with a certificate.
