    Can we get data streamed to out own databases

    Asked by John McBride on October 13, 2011 at 06:17 AM

    I like the looks of your product but the nature of our business means we would not want submissions/data being sved to off site facilities.


    I note that there appears to be a number of companies that have a similar setup to you s and we have in the past turned them all down as a desirable product.

    Hi John,

    Automatic connection to your databse using JotForm isn't supported. But if you are reffering on sending of submitted information via HTTP POST then you can manipulate the said data and save them to an SQL database you have.

    To enable sending via HTTP POST:

    1.  Go to Setup & Embed
    2.  Click Preferences button
    3.  Click Advanced Settings tab

    4.  Configure Send Post Data to "Yes"

    Hope this post helps in any way. Feel free to search or ask around the forum if you have more questions.

    Just a quick note regarding your query. There is actually no way that the submitted information will not be saved to our database before getting sent to yours. Not unless you use the form's full source code and change the action URL of the form to your own form processor page.

    In that case, you'll only be using JotForm to design the form's aesthetics.
