Product Description

MFSQL Database File Connector allows M-Files users to add metadata to documents stored in a SQL database without affecting the underlying database by promoting the documents to managed objects.

Using MFSQL Integration Connector, files can be imported into M-Files and updates can be made to the database application.

Installation is performed by installing a Vault Application that is available with the MFSQL Connector package. You must have the IML Core module installed as well as a license for this connector.

The MFSQL Database File Connector can be used in isolation or in conjunction with the MFSQL Integration Connector

  1. MFSQL Integration Connector: Integrate and synchronize information from other business systems with M-Files.
  2. MFSQL Database File Connector: Access important database files through M-Files.

When should you use MFSQL Database File Connector to access SQL instead of the M-Files API?

  • You have files stored as BLOBS in another database such as SQL Server or Oracle and wish to show these files in M-Files without importing the files.
  • You wish to add additional metadata to the files in other databases and integrate it with workflow and other M-Files capabilities without moving the files from the external application.
