Using Data Agents

Explains how to use Data Agents with Integration.

When you extract information from a JDBC-compliant database or a scripted data source, you must use a data agent. The data agent is hosted in a Windows service typi­cally deployed behind your firewall to allow access to specific customer data. It is an extensible component that manages secure access to applications as well as connections to the hosted Adaptive Planning Integration servers. You use the data agents to extract specified data from remote data sources.

You must have at least one agent on any computer that extracts information from a JDBC database for Adaptive Planning Integration.
