Microsoft SQL Server Ingestion

A simple guide to connecting Microsoft SQL Server datasources to your Koverse datasets

  1. To add data from a Microsoft SQL Server to Koverse, go to your dataset and click "Add Data" or "Import Data".

    Add Data

  2. Click "Connect to a Source"

    Connect to Source

  3. Under "Select a Source" select "Microsoft SQL Server"

    Connect to Microsoft SQL Server

  4. In the "URL" field, input URL for the MS SQL Server. The format follows, requiring the placeholder variables to be replaced with your specific data:


    • jdbc is indicating the connection is using the Java Database Connectivity API
    • sqlserver specifies to utilize the Microsoft SQL Server drivers with the JDBC API
    • server represents as a placeholder the hostname or IP address for the target MS SQL server
    • 1433 is the default port for SQL server; if using a different port set that here
    • dbname is the placeholder for the name of the database you are connecting to

    Connect to Microsoft SQL Server

A complete URL might look like this: jdbc:sqlserver://;database=EntertainmentMedia

  1. Next input your username and password for the MS SQL Server connection.

  2. Provide an SQL Query for Koverse to use to select the records to import, then fill out the details of your JDBC connection in the provided fields and click "Next."

Your import job will begin immediately.
