Database Connection Building Block
The database connection building block manages the solution’s connection to the database. This includes connecting to the database, creating database tables, updating the database schema, and creating, reading, updating and deleting data from the database.
Users should not directly modify the database. Changes to the database schema must be performed through the supported services provided by the PTC.DBConnection.DBManagement_TS Thing Shape.
