External DB configuration

Hi,
Plz let me know how to configure external db in modeler?

cheers,
Alok

The modeler doesn’t use a database, so this is no possible.

@Niall,

Thanks Niall…Just wanted to know in the below model any configuration is needed for db which I am pointing to?

the model itself wouldn’t need any particular DB and when it’s run in the platform it would use Camunda’s DB

@Niall
but here my requirement is to monitor external DB (ms-sql) ?

You’re going to need to follow the installation instructions in order to connect to a different database:
