Warning: When you are developing applications, defining sources, and granting user privileges, remember that security settings are not visible in the EnterWorks UI when applications are configured and enabled for end users. Consider defining separate Fusion users, implementing a naming convention, or using some other system that controls access or indicates the privileges granted to users when they are allowed to view or run applications and their sub-objects.

Data sources are managed in the Sources section of the navigation tree.

Create a Data Source

When you create a data source, its metadata is stored in the metadata repository. Creating a data source does not initiate any operations on the data source. To perform operations, create operations in scenarios and run them.

To create a data source:

  1. In the navigation tree, right-click Sources and select Create source.
  2. The Create source window will appear. Enter the source name, select the source type, and click the Create button. The data source window will open.
  3. In the Source name field, enter a name for your source.
  4. Open the Source type dropdown menu and select a source type. The configuration parameters for the source will change, depending on which source type you select. (For a discussion of configuring EnterWorks data sources and connectivity, see EnterWorks Connectivity.) Below is an example of configuration options for the MSSQLSource type.
    • connStr: The database connection string.

    • user: The database username.

    • password: The database password.

  5. When you have finished configuring the data source, test it. This can be done in two ways:
    • Click the Test connection button at the bottom of the current window. A status message will appear that indicates success or any errors.

    • Explore the source. In the navigation tree, right-click the source's name and select Explore. If you have successfully created the data source, the source's tables will be displayed in the current window.

Clone a Data Source

To clone a data source:

  1. In the navigation tree, right-click the name of the source you want to clone and select Clone.
  2. The Clone source window will open. Enter the New scenario name.
  3. Click the Clone button. The cloned data source will appear in the list of sources.

Delete a Data Source

To delete a data source:

  1. In the navigation tree, right-click the name of the source you want to delete and select Delete.
  2. A confirmation window will appear that asks if you are sure you want to delete the source.
  3. Click the Yes button. The source will be deleted from the list of sources.

Upload Libraries for a Data Source

Many operations (but not all) require libraries to be uploaded to the data source. Libraries usually consist of stored procedures implemented in a language supported by the data source. If you are using a source of type SQLServer or PostgreSQL, you must upload the libraries. To use the Match and Merge function, you must upload libraries.

To upload a data source's libraries:

  1. In the navigation tree, right-click the name of the source and select Upload libraries.
  2. Fusion will attempt to upload the libraries. A status message will appear in the current window.
