Databases for Microsoft Teams

A set of pre-packaged Database documents are provided that are used to collect Microsoft Teams operating data. While the running of these Databases is optional, it is recommended that they are started in order to obtain a full data collection for the reporting facility.

The pre-packaged databases include:

Windows Client:

From the Document Navigator expand the following folder path:

Knowledge → Collaborate → Microsoft → Teams → Databases

Locate and then drag the required Database item down to the Nodes Navigator onto the server that it is to be run on.
