Applies to Collaborator 12.2, last modified on October 31, 2019

Collaborator supports several databases:

  • Embedded. A zero-configuration embedded database useful for trials.

  • MySQL versions 4.1, 5.0, 5.1, 5.4, 5.5, 5.6, 5.7, 8.0.

  • Microsoft SQL Server versions 2008, 2012, 2014, 2016, 2017.

  • Oracle versions 11gR2 and 12c.

For trials, the zero-configuration embedded database is the easiest way to get started. MySQL is the best choice if you need a free open-source database.

The Collaborator server must be able to access your database server via TCP/IP. Collaborator requires an empty schema on the database server in which a dedicated database user can create, alter, read, write, update, and delete objects.

A built-in database migration tool allows you to move between any of the supported databases, so you can always get started on one and switch to another later on.

Note: MySQL database is supported in Collaborator Team and Collaborator Enterprise. Oracle and SQL Server databases are only supported in Collaborator Enterprise. For a complete list of different between Collaborator editions, see the comparison page.

For more about the database format, see Database Schema.
