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.

We freely distribute the default databases but they're intended for test purposes only. Connect Acrolinx to a database other than the freely distributed database formats that are installed with the Core Platform.

To connect to external databases for terminology, analytics and reporting, use the following 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.
