A database is a table-based data storage system. AgilePoint uses its own databases, and it can integrate with external databases.

Note: A database is not required to store application data in AgilePoint NX. You can use Data Entities as an alternative.

How AgilePoint NX Uses Databases

AgilePoint NX integrates in these ways with databases:

Third-Party Database Integration Types

AgilePoint NX integrates with these databases in various ways. Some database types can be used as back end data storage for AgilePoint NX, while others can be used through process activities or lookups.

AgilePoint Databases

ComponentDatabase Name (Suggested but Optional)Database Optional for Component?Function

Workflow Database



Stores application data in AgilePoint NX. This is the main AgilePoint NX database.

Data Entities



Stores the data for the Data Entities component.

Data Services



An AgilePoint server-side application that stores data you want to track and report in AgilePoint apps.

After your installation is complete, if you want to use advanced mode, create a table that is named based on the app, and create the table columns based on the fields from the form. The Primary Key should be the process instance ID (type varchar 50).

Analytics Center



The database for Analytics Center.

Reports Center Database

The Reports Center database is only used by AgilePoint customers who purchased the Reports Center component (sometimes called AgileReports) in AgilePoint NX v7.0 or lower.

Report Center



The database for Report Center data.

Note: The Report Center component (sometimes referred to as AgileReports) can only be used by customers who purchased this component before April 1, 2020. This version is no longer available for purchase, including by current and previous purchasers of AgilePoint NX or the Report Center component. In AgilePoint NX v8.0 and higher, Report Center has been replaced with the Analytics Center component.
