Database connection overview
Count can't do much without your database.
Workspace owners and admins can create a database connection using the "Connect a database" button in the left hand menu of the workspace home page.
Count supports many of the most popular databases, and support for more is coming soon.
Information on how to connect to each database can be found on the following pages:
Workspace owners and admins can connect their workspace to Count's demo connection.
This provides a fully working database connection and comes loaded with example canvases and tutorials to help you learn more about how Count works.
If you haven't connected a database yet, you can choose to connect to our demo database instead.
Count is built with security in mind and we have a number of measures in place to protect your data and take care of your database's integrity:
- 1.All traffic between your database, count.co and any workspace users is fully encrypted using HTTPS and SSL/TLS.
- 2.We don't take a copy of your database or alter your tables.
- 3.We make sure to protect your database from too much load by only running queries when necessary and limiting the number of results which get returned.
A database connection can be deleted at the bottom of the connection's settings menu.
Deleting a database connection will access to it from any projects referencing the connection. This will cause your canvas queries and visuals to error.
