Possible to use multiple databases?

Oct 1, 2009 at 4:23 PM


I'll start off by saying I've been using SLAM for a while and find it's a great tool.

I've found myself with the need to SLAM SharePoint lists from different sites to different databases... is it possible to specify more than one connection string and then, in the DataMapping of the config file, specify in which database to SLAM?

If not, consider it a "nice to have" for the next version. ;)

Hi there,

Glad to hear you’re getting good use out of SLAM. 

Sorry we've been slow in responding to the forums.  We've just been "slammed" with projects (including a HUGE slam deployment this weekend).

Anyway, wanted to respond that we have recently added that capability to SLAM – the ability to map different site collections to different slam databases - and it will be released in v1.3.  We just haven't had the time recently to document the new features adequately to post an official version upgrade.  If you contact us at, we’re happy to send you a beta release.
