Premium Feature — Available with all Premium Editions of LabKey Server. Learn more or contact LabKey.

You can set up a remote connection to another instance of LabKey Server to support ETLs that move data from one to the other. Remote connections are not a direct connection to a database; instead data is accessed through API calls to the target server, generally as part of an ETL.

The connection is limited to a single specified folder on the target server, connected only to a specific folder on the originating server, making it easier to limit user access to data.

Set up a Remote Connection

  • To encrypt the login to the remote server, define an encryption key in the LabKey configuration file labkey.xml (or ROOT.xml). For details on setting a encryption key see: Installation: LabKey Configuration File.
  • Select a folder on the accessing server. The data retrieved from the target server will be available in this folder on the accessing server.
  • Go to (Admin) > Developer Links > Schema Browser > Manage Remote Connections.
  • Click Create New Connection and complete the form.
  • Click Save.
  • Click Test to see if the connection is successful.
