Is the Windows App Database Connector Persistent

I’m simply connecting a postgres db to my plotly account. I downloaded the Windows app and everything is up and running. For that data to be accessible within plot.ly 2.0, does that app need to be running, or will those creds hold on the account and connect whenever a new query is ran or data is pulled?

Hey @etreznicek

You’ll need to keep the database connector running. The database connector will execute queries on a schedule and will update your datasets and graphs in your Plotly account with that new data. The database credentials are always stored on the computer that is running the connector, they are never stored in your plotly account.

Here is some more information about how to schedule database queries.
