The databases component allows you to manage your connection strings, in addition to your external and internal databases. This is your goto component if you want to connect to an external database. It allows you to connect to any MySQL, PostgreSQL, SQL Server, or MariaDB database. Provide it with your connection string, give your connection string a name, and click connect.


In addition to allowing you to connect to external databases, this is also the place you go to create a new SQLite database.

Adding a connection string

It is important that you exchange your catalogue name, or database name, with the text “{database}”. This is because Magic needs to be able to dynamically connect to multiple catalogues or databases in your database server.
