Data sources

Introduction

One of the first natural steps to do after setting up Optique platform, is to add one or more data sources. Optique supports a broad set of data formats like relational databases via JDBC, CSV and Excel FileUploads, data streams, XML files or JSON. Each individual data source has to be added and configured manually.

Once configured, the data can be queried in their original format and schema through a polyglot data access mechanism.

Training

In essence, data sources setup is a case-by-case exercice. A close dialog with the IT administrator and DB administrator is a key factor to successful data source setup. The resource below gives insight in the type of data sources that are supported and some key elements that need to be provided for each source type.
