More database connectors
Data & Integrations

Hello everyone!

Like we know, Outsystems have standard connectors to external database: MySQL, SQL server, Oracle...

What I see is that we can win time if we have more database type connectors available, like Informix, Postgres... Many of the work that I made, I need that kind of tools and I believe that I'm not the one.

So, that's an idea! 

Best regards,

Ricardo Pereira

Hi Ricardo,

Although this makes sense, with the upcoming new features that we have in mind we currently don't have plans to tackle this in the near future.

Nonetheless, thank you very much for your idea and keep it coming.

If you believe we missed some context that would change our perception about it, please give us more details about why you would need this and for what is the use case.


So none of  the worldwide  Outsystens customers, ever asked about an Informix connector ?

None from the US ?


Merged this idea with 'Outsystems - support for common database types (e.g. Postgres) on OutSystems Cloud' (created on 31 Aug 2020 12:04:04 by Sam Wu)

Postgres is very popular and has practical use cases because of its compatibility with Oracle DB. OutSystems Cloud SaaS does not have ability to connect to Postgres databases in database connection. It should be basic, out-of-box feature of OutSystems.

Hi Ricardo, 

Thanks for your feedback.

We recently released PostgreSQL (Generic, Azure, AWS Aurora) and MongoDB connectors.

Additionally, we have a couple of others in the oven, and we will release them soon.
