Connecting Workstream to your Monte Carlo account allows you to manage your data incident workflow, including displaying data status pages for your critical dashboards and other data assets. This article walks you through how to connect your Monte Carlo instance to Workstream.

Monte Carlo supports both personal and account-level keys. Only users with the Account Owner role can create account-level keys. It is highly recommended that you use account-level keys to ensure that the integration stays active if the connecting user's account becomes inactive.

The Monte Carlo integration currently supports the following asset types. Please note that we are in the process of adding more supported assets:

  • Looker

  • Tableau
