Connect to Turbot pipes from Navicat
Navicat is a database management and design tool. It connects to many databases, including Postgres, and enables users to explore, query, and visualize data.
Steampipe provides a single interface to all your cloud, code, logs and more. Because it's built on Postgres, Steampipe provides an endpoint that any Postgres-compatible client -- including Navicat -- can connect to.
The Connect tab for your workspace provides the details you need to connect Navicat to Turbot pipes.
