How to deploy application if using different External Database....

Hi, everyone

I would like to ask about the external database question. If I am creating App on DEV and the App is connected with DEV_Database. If I deploy the App to UAT, can outsystems help to auto change the External Database from DEV_Database to UAT_Database?

If not, please advise how I can do it. 

Thank you very much

Hi,

In service center under the configuration tab you have to define a database connection that includes a connectionstring.

This database connection you can configure in every outsystems environment differently.

There is good training material that explains all the details to get access to an external database en how to configure this. https://www.outsystems.com/learn/courses/119/integrating-with-external-databases/

As well as outsystems documentation: https://success.outsystems.com/Documentation/11/Extensibility_and_Integration/Integrate_with_an_External_Database

Hi,

Your extension to connect an external database is mapped to a database connection. Database connections are configurable in service center of each environment. 

Thanks,

Thanks for your help, I remember I should set the DB connection in Service Center now. It is working now.

Thanks
