Establish a Connection

Version 23.3.8698

Establish a Connection

Before creating your first API, you need to connect to your data store. Arc supports connecting to relational databases, file stores, and back-end services such as other APIs.

Once you select the data store type on the Connection tab, a list of connection properties is generated for the selected data store. Enter your credentials for connecting to the data store and save your changes on this page. Click Test Connection to make sure the app is connected to your data store.

Note: The application includes drivers for some common databases, but may not include drivers for all the data sources it supports. For drivers that are not included, make sure to follow the instructions below for your machine type.

Windows Edition

Install the ADO.NET provider on this machine, restart the server, and retry connecting to your data store.

Java Edition

Copy the JDBC driver to the lib folder of your Java Web server.
