Repository

Description

 

Repositories are compartments held in a single database. Instead of handling the whole data source as a single block of data, repositories handle a smaller subset. As a result, Repositories allows you to manage a massive amount of entries as you normally would, without experiencing diminished performance. Since the database isn't broken into multiple smaller databases, you only have to maintain a single set of users, security groups and roles.

A locked data source can be exported and imported, but its content will not be accessible for use unless a password is entered when the data source is selected. See Lock Data Source for more information.
