Create a database in SQL Server; name it jwdb (or another preferred database name).
Make sure that you grant the intended database user with sufficient access to "jwdb".
Download jwdb-mssql-ddl.sql and load this SQL file to "jwdb". This will populate all necessary Joget table structures into "jwdb".
In joget-installation-directory/wflow/, create a new datasource profile file - app_datasource-mssql.properties.
Open to edit joget-installation-directory/wflow/app_datasource-mssql.properties in text editor and insert contents as shown in Figure 1 below. You may need to edit the configurations (such as datasource URL, database user/password) according to your environment.
Open to edit joget-installation-directory/wflow/app_datasource.properties in text editor and change the content as shown in Figure 2 below. This is to activate the datasource profile named "mssql".
Restart Joget server.
Step 1: Datasource Profile Configurations
You may need to change the datasource URL, database user and database user's password accordingly.
Step 2: datasource.properties
Step 3: Enabling TCP/IP on Microsoft SQL Server 2005
In order to connect to the Microsoft SQL Server remotely (such as JDBC datasource), TCP/IP needs to be enabled. This is disabled by default on Microsoft SQL Server 2005 Express edition. TCP/IP may also be manually disabled on other editions of Microsoft SQL Server 2005.To enable TCP/IP on Microsoft SQL Server 2005:
In Microsoft SQL Server 2005 -> Configuration Tools, open 'Microsoft SQL Server Configuration Manager'.
Expand ‘SQL Server 2005 Network Configuration’ and then click on ‘Protocols for <Instance Name>’. <Instance Name> is the name of the database instance used by Joget.
Right-click on ‘TCP/IP’ and then click on ‘Enable’. The icon for the protocol will change to show that the protocol is enabled.
