The default database connection method for OnBase servers and applications requires ADO.NET connection strings. An ODBC connection is still required for the OnBase Client and the OnBase Configuration module.

A connection string contains the information required to connect to a database, and each connection string has a unique identifying name for that data source connection. This unique data source name is referenced by other applications to connect to the database configured in the connection string.
