6.  Configure datastore where server configuration data will be located.

 

Embedded database - If this option is chosen, server configuration data will be stored locally in the embedded H2 database located in [MFT Server installation directory]/data

 

Custom database - If this option is chosen, server configuration data will be stored in an external ANSI-compliant relational database like MySQL, MS SQL Server, Oracle, or PostgreSQL

 

Database URL - the URL of the relational database (e.g. jdbc:mysql://localhost:3306/mftserverconfig)
Database username - the name of an existing user account that has sufficient permissions for that database
Database password - the corresponding password of that user account
Synchronization period - Specifies how often GUI data is synchronized with the database. This is normally needed when you have two (2) or more instances of MFT Server connecting to a shared global datastore and you want to specify how often the configuration data on those servers are synchronized.
