When granting Zoola an account for database access, it is strongly recommended that the access provided is to a replica database (as opposed to direct access to your production database). This replica database can be a backup, if you choose.
Note that if you opt to instead provide access to your production database, queries run against this database may negatively impact
the performance of your Learning Management System. The replication frequency of this database will determine the time-based availability of your data in Zoola.
Vendor & Version
Zoola Analytics requires that each table name
in your Moodle or Totara database have the following default prefix: mdl_ i.e. 'mdl_user'
Zoola Analytics requires a JDBC connection to the Moodle or Totara database.
Database Connection Security
Zoola Analytics requires a Transport Layer Security (TLS) encrypted connection to your database. Lambda Solutions will work with you to ensure the appropriate security is in place to ensure your data remains safe.
