Setting Up a Direct Connection

Establishing a direct connection to a data base is the easiest way to connect your data to Lumi.


Only a few things are required to get started with the Direct Connection:

Some IT policies restrict database access through a firewall. Therefore policies would need to be changed to open specified ports. If this is possible and related infrastructure supports and endorses the method, this is the simpler way to make a connection. Otherwise please see Data Gateway.

  1. Host: Location where the DB is hosted.

  2. Port: Port number that is assessable for the connection.

  3. Username: User name for the DB connection. Commonly 'Admin'.

  4. Password: Password for the user.
