  1. Sorry for the late reply Mike!

    Yes, the plugin allows to connect to remote databases. You can create remote database connections from the Data Explorer main page (the + button after the databases drop down list).

  2. I am not allowed to enter a publish number its greyed out also the table names arent showing ?

    Thanks

    1. Hi Simon,

      You don’t need to enter en publication ID. The plugin generates one for you when you save your publication the first time.

      Before you can create a publication, you need to grant access to the tables you want to use in your publication. This is to ensure that users have only access to tables you have authorized. Please check out the video on this page on how to use tables in your publication:

      Best regards,
      Peter
