Configuring a Property Provider
When a property is configured as persistent in ThingWorx, the property write values are stored in the model persistence provider database (for example, PostgreSQL). This default behavior can be changed so that the property write values are stored in the persistence provider of your choice.
* 
This configuration is not currently available for DataStax Enterprise (DSE) implementations.
Changing the Default Property Provider for PostgreSQL
The default property persistence provider is ThingworxPersistenceProvider. To change this, follow the steps below:
1. Create a new persistence provider instance. See Configuring a Persistence Provider Entity.
2. Create a property provider schema in your database by configuring and running the thingworxPostgresSchemaSetup.sh (non Windows) or thingworxPostgresSchemaSetup.bat (Windows) with the -o option set to property. Provide the database host (-h), port (-p), and schema name (-d).
For example, ./thingworxPostgresSchemaSetup.sh -h localhost -p 5432 -d MyPropertyProviderDatabase -o property
* 
The thingworxPostgresSchemaSetup.sh and thingworxPostgresSchemaSetup.bat files are located in the software download package, available on PTC Software Downloads.
* 
For more information on the thingworxPostgresSchemaSetup file options, refer to the ThingWorx PostgreSQL Guide.
3. In the Platform Subsystem configuration, in the Property Persistence Provider field, click the X next to ThingWorxPersistenceProvider and use the magic picker to select the persistence provider that you created.
4. Click Save.
