Data Sources

The Data Sources tool is accessed from the More dropdown menu found in the top navigation bar and provides a way to add, remove, and update the data sources that you wish to have access to within the application. Data sources provide access to your data from various applications and tools. Data sources can consist of a simple database connection string and provider name, and/or a service URL that points to a map service that is published with the specified connection string. A data source does not have to have both a database connection and a service URL, but if both are provided the two must point to the same database.

Note: Data Sources are mainly managed in the Application Manager, but administrators can add and edit them in the Road Analyzer application as well.
