Connect to External Databases

Acrolinx stores terminology, analytics, and reporting data in databases. When you install the Acrolinx Core Platform, the Terminology Manager, analytics, and the reporting database each come with a default database. The default databases are freely distributed but aren’t optimal for storing high volumes of data in combination with the Core Platform. You can connect Acrolinx to a database other than the freely distributed database formats that are installed with the Core Platform.
To connect to external terminology, analytics and reporting databases, follow the relevant user guides:

  1. Connecting to external terminology databases
  2. Connecting to external Analytics databases
  3. Connecting to external reporting databases

Configuring the connection requires knowledge of the operating system in use, TCP/IP networks, client-server systems, and the necessary communication protocols as well as knowledge of XML.
