Data sources are effectively a saved set of connection parameters used to connect to a specific database.  

Data models are used to make data easier for end-users to use and for WireBootstrap to query on their behalf.   Reasons for using a data model include:

  • Hide certain database objects so users don't see them
  • Specify table relationships
  • Specify how data is to be aggregated when summarizing
