Databases

The databases that are defined on a cluster are those that are available to robots running on the cluster RoboServers. This means that for a robot to access a cluster database, it must use the name that the databases is given in the cluster settings. A database uses a database type. Database types are defined in the Management Console settings.

If a cluster has been selected as providing Design Studio with Shared Databases, the databases that are defined on the cluster are also sent to Design Studio.

For users upgrading from pre 9.2.0 versions, it is possible to import databases from the legacy db.properties files in which databases were previously defined. This is done by selecting the 'Databases' node in the tree, and clicking the 'Import Databases From File' button. This will open a window in which the contents of the file can be pasted.

The properties of the databases are the same as those described here.

To add a new database, you either select the database category, and click the 'Add Database' button, or you right-click the database category and click the add button. You can import databases from legacy properties files. This is done by selecting the database category and clicking the 'Import Databases From File' button. This will open a window in which you can paste the contents of the file you wish to import.
