  --header 'Content-Type: application/vnd.gooddata.api+json' \
  --data '{
      "data": {
        "attributes": {
          "name": "GDC Good Demo Data source",
          "url": "jdbc:snowflake://",
          "schema": "GOODDATA_DEMO_SCHEMA",
          "type": "SNOWFLAKE",
          "username": "gooddata_demo",
          "password": "<db Pass>"
        "id": "gdc_ds_gooddemo",
        "type": "dataSource"
}' $ENDPOINT/api/v1/entities/dataSources
