Managing integrated data sources

Overview

Data Replication and Data Virtualization in Bizagi allows you to integrate external data sources in a seamless way into your Bizagi processes.

Bizagi offers the possibility to manage the parameters used by the integration points of your processes in a testing or production environment, as described at External systems administration.

 

 

Managing connectivity

Review or modify the connection settings to your integrated data sources, by following these steps:

 

1.  Go to the Systems module (or refresh this view).

This will display your integrated system used for either Data Virtualization or Data Replication, under the External Systems node.

 

Locate the System you configured for your integrated data sources. In this example, such System is called Employees

 

MIS01

 

2. Navigate the tree to find your configured providers.

All your configured providers are show. You can drill down to review the virtualized or replicated entities.

 

MIS02

 

3. To display the connection settings, right click on the provider you wish to review or modify, and click the properties option.

 

MIS03

 

A window showing the connection details of the provider is displayed. On its upper ribbon, click the Development Properties tab. There you can review or modify its details.

 

MIS04

 

 

Verifying scheduled execution

Once Data Replication is set in your project, you may choose to verify that its execution synchronizes the values for those Parameter Entities with matching values from your external table's columns.

Review a scheduled Replication execution, by following these steps:

 

1. Go to the Systems module (or refresh this view).

This will display integrated system used for Data Replication.

 

Expand the node elements under it, and browse your configuration until the Replication Schema is presented (under: that particular system, the Providers node, the specific provider, the Replicated Entities node, and finally the Default Replication Class).

 

2. Right-click the Schema and click on its Replication Schema Properties:

 

VR_Replication09_ReplicationExecutionProps

 

 

In this window select the Replication Logs tab to display the date and time of replication executions.

Should there be any error, instead of the Success status, you will be able to see the Error status, with its corresponding cause (message).

 

 

VR_Replication10_ReplicationLogs

 

 

When the Replication Schema has been successful executed, you may look for the replicated entities values under the Parameter Entities in Bizagi.

This option is used from Bizagi Work portal, in the Entities administration.

 

3. In addition to this log, and enabling the job repetition to run again, you may use the Replicate Now option for your replicated entities to start their synchronization immediately:
