What is a Source

A Source is the origin of data where we want to build an OpenNMS requisition with. Each requisition requires a source definition in the requisition.properties file. Depending on the type of the source, different configuration parameters are available. A JDBC source, for example, has different configuration parameters versus an XLS source. The existing sources with their respective configuration parameters are described in this section.

A source is configured in the requisition.properties for the requisition.
