Data Providers Overview

Data providers enable services for establishing the connection between the data you want to display and the data source you want to use.

  • A data provider is an abstraction for data which describes a base URI (Generic REST).
  • The endpoints in the data providers can be either protected or not. The definition of a data provider identifies the authentication model which is required to access the data server it supports.
  • You can create multiple data providers.
  • You can define one or more data sources from the same data provider.

Supported Services

The data services deliver access to one or more resources which provide the data.
