Connecting to Data Sources
You can configure adapters and connect to data sources across your enterprise, which you can then use to build reports, charts, and visualizations using WebFOCUS Designer or other tools. You can also create a synonym for one or more data objects, or create cluster synonyms for select objects assigned as facts or dimensions.
You can access the connect to data workflow in the following ways:
- From the WebFOCUS Home Page, click the Data tab on the Action Bar, and then click the Connect icon .
- From the WebFOCUS Home Page, click the Designer tab on the Action Bar, click the Workbook or Chart button, and then click Connect in the Open dialog box.
- From the WebFOCUS Home Page, click the InfoAssist tab on the Action Bar, click the Chart, Visualization, Report, or Document button, and then click Connect to Data in the Open dialog box.
- From the Legacy home page, in the Resources tree, right-click a domain or folder, point to Metadata, and then click Connect to Data.
Note: The Report button appears in the Designer tab if you have enabled the Technical Preview feature.
