Connections Using On-Premise Agent

A connection determines where requests will be made from. With a direct connection, requests will be executed from Workato servers. A connection using an on-premise agent will have requests sent from the environment where the agent is installed in.

For some of your connections, you may want to specify whether it connects through Workato servers or through your on-premise agent. The triggers and actions available in the chosen connector are the same regardless of your choice of connection. An on-premise app connection needs to point to a specific connection profile in your on-premise agent.

Connecting to database profiles

All database connectors give you the option to connect through an on-premise agent. In the connection fields, Select the desired on-premise agent from the field labelled Is this app in a private network?.

Once you select the on-premise agent, enter the On-prem connection profile name. This profile name should be the same as what you configured in the database section of the config.yml configuration file.

In the following example, we are connecting to a SQL Server database with the profile name production.

database:
  production:
    adapter: sqlserver
    host: localhost
    username: me
    password: foobar

When configuring a SQL Server connection to this profile, we will need to provide the profile name accordingly.

Connecting to on-premise file system profiles

All on-premise files connectors must be connected through an on-premise agent. In the connection fields, Select the desired on-premise agent from the field labelled Is this app in a private network?.

Once you select the on-premise agent, enter the On-prem connection profile name. This profile name should be the same as what you configured in the database section of the config.yml configuration file.

files:
  hrfiles:
    base: "C:/Documents/HR"

When configuring an on-premise files connection to this profile, we will need to provide the profile name accordingly.
