OpenBase Manager

Database Browser

The OpenBase Manager allows you to view and edit database table information using the Database Browser. To do this select a started database (one with a green dot) and click the View Data icon. This will bring up the Data Viewer tab shown in Figure 19.

Database Configuration

OpenBase Manager provides options for managing server information. This includes Network access, License information, and Security. These settings are accessed by clicking File on the OpenBase Manager menu bar, selecting the Server option, and then Configure Local Host.

DataBase Synchronization

OpenBase provides full two-way synchronization of databases. This means that you can make changes to any database in a group of synchronized databases and those changes will make their way to all other databases.

Misc Manager Topics

The OpenBase Manager provides some tools for transferring database information to and from a bulk saved ASCII format. The Backup to ASCII and Restore from ASCII functions are accessed from the Action menu or icon. These functions transfer all information in the database including archived Objects and BLOBs. While it does save user account information, the ASCII format does not record table permissions. Another method to backup your databases is to copy the .db bundle.

OpenBase Manager Overview

The OpenBase Manager application provides graphical tools for managing database servers across your local area network. It also includes tools for viewing database tables, editing database schemas, managing database security and starting database servers.

Schema Design

The Database Schema Editor allows administrators and database developers to view and change the database schema (the design of data tables and relationships). The Database Schema Editor offers a graphical database view showing tables as boxes and relationships as lines connecting boxes. It also offers a tabular view that lists the tables in alphabetical order and allows you to see the table columns as an easy to edit list.

User Manager

The OpenBase Manager has a built in facility for managing database users. A database user is simply a login/password combination that gives a person access to a database. Databases are considered to be network resources and therefore must have their own user authentication system.
