The Database Rule Type can be applied to any type of extracted data. This rule provides a means to directly interface with any SQL Database.

This Rule Type is useful when extracted data needs to be synchronized with other external databases, or when external data needs to be pulled into the Service.

The following SQL Methods are available:

SQL Method Description
Query A SQL query is executed directly on the SQL database.
Stored Procedure A SQL Stored Procedure is executed directly on the SQL database.
Command A SQL command is executed directly on the database.

The SQL Method can be selected by clicking on the SQL Method dropdown box.

The following properties can be configured for the SQL database connection:

  • The database provider (client)
  • The database connection string
  • The SQL Query to be executed (when SQL Query mode has been selected).
