Can OutSystems able to connect Sybase database
Question

Can OutSystems able to connect existing Sybase database to use the tables as entities?

Hi Kiran,

If you can access the database using .NET, I'd say yes, but only as external entities, in an extension.

Using as external entities - for this outsystems doesn't have option of Sybase ( in dropdown) to connect. And using .Net means how can we achieve that?

Hi Kiran,

It's very much possible using extension. OutSystems has documented well with step-by-step approach to establish a connection with external database. Check it out on below link.

There are no options in the External Database connection to use Sybase. Only can able to access the DB data by making an external API.

OutSystems can integrate with external database via database connector.

But currently there is no Sybase connector bundled with OutSystems, so you need use database integration SDK to create database connector by yourself.


Because database integration SDK is only available on-premise,  you need contact with OutSystems Support.

Did anyone build an ASE connector that they can share here on the forum?
