By default, Node-RED uses a local file-system implementation to store its runtime data; more information on this can be found here.
The ActiveControl Node-RED integration framework includes a custom storage module for storing runtime data in the SAP database of the ActiveControl Domain Controller system
This exists in a separate namespace to ActiveControl’s /BTI/ namespace – as it will also be used by Basis Technologies’ other flagship product Testimony in the future.
Storing the data in the SAP database enables ActiveControl customers to leverage their existing backup strategy; the following content will be stored:
- flow configuration
- flow credentials
- user settings
- user sessions
- node library content
