Connect Your Charts and Dashboards to a Postgres Database

Graph data from your Postgres SQL database with Plotly 2.0 and Falcon.

Step 1

Download and Install Falcon

If you haven't downloaded and installed Falcon yet, please follow the instructions for either personal setup or company on-premise.

Step 2

Launch and Connect

After launching Falcon, select PostgreSQL by clicking on its icon.


Enter your username, password, database server name (host) and its port number and click CONNECT.

NOTE: If you are running your database locally, the host input field can stay empty since its default value is 'localhost'. Similarly, if your database is setup on port number 3306, you may leave the port input field empty as well. If your database is setup on a remote server, simply copy the endpoint name into the host input field and enter the remote server's port number on which your database is located.


Have no database? Try it out with our read-only postgreSQL database. Simply, click Show Sample Credentials, copy, paste and click CONNECT.

Sample Credentials

Once connection is established, your connection credentials will be saved and greyed out to avoid unintentional changes. If you wish to modify your connection, click on Edit Credentials.
