Mimer SQL Specific Configuration Settings


Please note the following specific settings.


  • Select the .NET Framework Data Provider for Mimer SQL that‘s not part of the Layer2 Cloud Connector, which should be installed separately from the Mimer SQL download site.
  • You can use a connection string like this to connect:
    Database=mimer_database;Protocol=local;User Id=myuser;Password=mypassword;
  • You can make use of SQL like queries like "SELECT * FROM myschema.mytable" to query your data as supported by the data provider and source system. For any specification of query language supported see Mimer SQL documentation
  • You can map your data fields to specific external source fields in the Layer2 Cloud Connector. Please take care about data types (simple type conversions are supported).
  • Please enter an appropriate primary key (column with unique values), depending on query (see data preview for this).

Mimer SQL Data Integration - Known Issues and Workarounds


  • If the data provider does not apperar in the provider dropdown, it is not installed - or the installed provider architecture (32/64-bit) does not fit to the installed Layer2 Cloud Connector.
  • You can generally use the connection for uni-directional synchronization (read access). We cannot support writing back to this entity as most of the tables are read-only and only available through views.
  • No programming required to setup a connection. No need to open your local network for access from outside. No need to modify the connected systems.
  • For more detailed setting options please take a look at the Layer2 Cloud Connector User's Guide.
