Datasource Interfaces

The Datasource class in system:inmation allows you to interface to a multitude of different server types that provide data to your system.

Datasources are created beneath Connector objects and for the most part require minimal configuration with connection being possible with default parameters. These are known as Managed Datasources as the client functionality and configuration is contained within the object itself.

Datasources operate as the clients in system:inmation, connecting to external system/servers.

This section contains more detailed configuration information for the interface types that require more involved setups involving specific system information, depending on the server type.

Please also see the Product Overview documentation for more information on Datasources within the system and other options for client functionality within the system using the Lua API.
