Manage the Microsoft SQL Server Connector
Composer's SQL Server connector lets you access the data available in the SQL query engine using the Composer client. The minimum version of MS SQL you can use with Composer is v11.0 (SQL Server 2012).
Before you can establish a connection from Composer to SQL Server storage, a connector server needs to be installed and configured. See Manage Connectors and Connector Servers for general instructions and Connect to Microsoft SQL Server for details specific to the Microsoft SQL Server connector.
After the connector has been set up, you can create data source configurations that specify the necessary connection information and identify the data you want to use. See Manage Data Source Configurations for more information. After data sources are configured, they can be used to create dashboards and visuals from your data. See Create Dashboards.
