......@@ -26,12 +26,28 @@ Below is a quick start video of creating connections in |var_product_name|
.. note::
|var_product_name| uses JDBC to connect to database platforms. It is recommended you refer to the JDBC guides for our supported platforms to learn about specific variables to use within the **Advance Parameters** section of |var_product_name|. We will provide links to that documentation where available.
The video below provides a more detailed explanation of how to use advanced parameters to illicit the desired behavior and successful connection to the database platform.

Downloading Drivers
-----------------------------------
The first step in configuring a connection is to download the JDBC driver for the platform you will be using. In most cases, we will provide access to the drivers which have been certified to work with |var_product_name|. In some cases such as when the vendor does not allow us to distribute or you want to use a different version, you will have to manually add the JDBC driver.
The video below provides a quick illustration of how to manage drivers.
