A Data store is the perfect tool for storing data from scenarios or transferring data between individual scenarios or scenario runs. You can use Data stores to store new data from various systems during synchronization. Data stores are similar to databases or simple tables.
Examples of the different uses can be found here.
You can create a new data store or select an existing data store from the drop-down list. To view the data store you have selected, click the Browse button. To create a new data store, click the Add button.
Clicking the Add button in the settings of any module from the Data store app will display the form for creating a new data store.
Type a name for the data store and prepare a data structure.
The total storage capacity of your data store depends on the plan you have purchased. You estimate how much storage space you will need for each data store and reserve a corresponding amount of space.
The reserved amount can be changed at any time later on.
A data structure, simply put, is a list of the columns for a table, that indicate the column name and data type. It is preferable to select a data type. This will enable you to work with individual data types later on. For example, you can add and subtract numbers, compare dates, or postpone a date by a month.
Give the data structure a name. The data structure can be then used to create another data store.
More information about data types can be found here.
Other parameters depend on the data type chosen.
