Logi Info applications use a special Connection element, Connection.Logi DataHub v3, in the _Settings definition to connect to dataviews:
This Connection element is available in Logi Info v12.0.036 SP2 and later. It provides a single connection point to all of the dataviews available in the Logi DataHub v3 repository database.
The element's attributes are:
(Required) Specifies an element identifier, unique within the application.
(Required) Specifies the name of the server hosting the Logi DataHub v3 repository database.
(Required) Specifies a user name for accessing the Logi DataHub v3 repository database. The standard installed database user name is postgres.
Specifies the amount of time, in seconds, before the request to connect to the Logi DataHub v3 repository is presumed to have failed. The default value is 60 seconds.
Specifies a full connection string to the Logi DataHub v3 repository database. If a value is defined here, it will override all other attributes for this element and be used for the connection to the database.

Specifies a password for accessing the Logi DataHub v3 repository database.
Specifies the port address of the Logi DataHub v3 repository database. The standard installed database port number (the default value) is 5029.

Once the connection has been made, then dataviews are available using the standard Logi Studio data retrieval elements and tools:
In the example shown above, Studio's Database Browser tool is being used to explore the Logi DataHub v3 repository.
