List with an external data source

The values of a list in Projectrak can depend on the values of an external data source. So far only databases are available.

1. To create a database connection, go to Projectrak → Connections.

2. Select Create connection.

3. Enter the required information.

For connection string you have the following examples of the most important databases:

Database

Connection String

SQLServer
jdbc:sqlserver://<server>[:<port>];databasename=<databasename>;schema=<schema>;user=<user id>;password=<password>
Oracle
jdbc:oracle:thin:[<user>/<password>]@<host>[:<port>]:<SID>
MySQL
jdbc:mysql://<server>[:<port>]/<database>?user=<user>&password=<password>
PostgreSQL
jdbc:postgresql://<server>[:<port>]/<database>?user=<user>&password=<password>

4. Select a list in the Fields manager (Go to Projectrak → Fields.)

5. Under External sources, select a source.

6. Enter the field name, the connection (previously created) and the SQL query that will be used to get the values.
