This page describes how to prepare the MySQL database for use by CollectionSpace.


Before preparing the database, it is assumed that:

  1. You already have MySQL installed, as described in Install and configure MySQL
  2. It is assumed that you have either downloaded the pre-built CollectionSpace domains or followed the instructions on Configure JBoss and Nuxeo to use MySQL in order to prepare these domains.
The page Install and configure MySQL does not exist.

Service specific database tables

In addition to the steps above, you will also need to perform the following additional steps in order to create the tables needed by individual CollectionSpace services:

  1. ID Service. Follow the instructions in ID Service Configuration Guide to configure the database for the ID Service.
  2. Authentication Service. Follow the instructions in Authentication Service Configuration Guide to configure the database for the default identity provider.

Due to the modular nature of CollectionSpace services, these additional steps have not yet been consolidated into the database preparation described above.
