Custom descriptions for data sources

You can use you own description for a data source, rather than accepting the default description that Exonar Reveal generates.

Creating data sources manually

Exonar Reveal automatically assigns a description to each data source.

By default, the description is made up of a hierarchy representation of the selected data source target.

Descriptions must be unique. They can be up to 1000 characters long.

See Connecting to data for details of how to use a custom description for any data source.

Creating data sources from a definition file

When you create data sources manaully, you set them up one at a time.

Alternatively, you can use a definition file to load the configuration of multiple data sources at the same time.

See Loading data sources from file for more information.
