Install a Data Source

A data source is the application or service that powers your solution, from the input source of a module to the communication channels used to orchestrate collaboration between your process contributors. Each module template includes recommended data sources, but you're also free to download data sources individually and integrate them into your solution.

To install a data source on your Tonkean board, follow the steps below:

  1. Navigate to the Component Library.

  2. In the side panel, select Data Sources. The Data Sources screen displays.
