Database sources can be configured in Settings > Configuration -> Data sources.

Depending on the database, you need:
  • to install unixodbc and python-pyodbc packages to use ODBC connections.
  • to install FreeTDS driver (tdsodbc package) and configure it through ODBC to connect to Microsoft SQL Server.
  • to install and configure Oracle Instant Client and cx_Oracle python library to connect to Oracle.
