1.1 Purpose

To connect an existing database to Infomaxim Aurora.

1.2 Process

The administrator selects a local database.

The tables in the database are identified.

The administrator selects those tables to be connected.

The tables are scanned and a database dictionary is created.

The administrator can customise the database dictionary to control:-

  • Field labels
  • Field rendering controls for editing
  • Table relationships – tableA.field related to tableB.fieldA – display.fieldB
  • Security
    • Groups or users
    • Rights
      • View
      • Edit
      • Delete
      • Administer

1.3 Sync

Once a table is discovered and created in the data dictionary, subsequent discoveries of the same table in the same database will result in a delta sync of the data and database structure.
