Publisher: Laminin Solutions

Product Description

MFSQL Integration Connector provides procedures and functions to assist the development of extensive integrations and applications around M-Files using SQL.

This module is useful when you are building complex integration services with a third-party application or need to manage and analyze complex metadata structure.

Installation is performed by installing a Vault Application that is available with the MFSQL Connector package.

There are two related MFSQL Connector Modules.

  1. MFSQL Data Exchange and Reporting Connector: This is the base module and comes with the Integration Module.
  2. MFSQL Integration Connector: Integrate and synchronize information from other business systems with M-Files.

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

  • You already use Microsoft SQL Server databases and want to extend that use with M-Files data: Use the power of SQL with M-Files.  Any SQL literate person can use MFSQL Connector to interact between SQL and M-Files without the need to gain any understanding of M-Files APIs. The M-Files data in SQL are easy to follow and interact with.
  • Your applications require flexibility to analyze, combine, split, or change M-Files metadata: If you need the ability to remap M-Files metadata and extend the connection with other applications, MFSQL Connector can align data between third party tables and the vault metadata. You can also enrich, reduce, or analyze metadate across multiple classes.
  • You want to integrate 3rd party application databases that use SQL without extensive .NET development: Using MFSQL Connector, you can get data from your custom development to and from M-Files; combine, split, or change data types; push data from M-Files to another application on demand; and access metadata and files in SQL databases and import them into M-Files.
  • You want to speed the development cycle by using pre-built functions and capabilities: MFSQL Connector contains a host of special functions and capabilities that can be re-used in a variety of applications to speed the development cycle. Examples include bulk update, bulk delete, reset object internal id, on demand SQL processing, on event SQL processing, blog import, get M-Files event log, bulk emails with attachments and much, much more.
