No add option on Real-Time Data source Type

Kevin asked 6 years ago
I have an issue that when we try and add a real-time data source, the only option along the top is “Linked Maps”, and I don’t see a way to “Add” a data source. Is there something I need to do to enable this?
We are on version

under Maps | realtime data sources, there should be a drop down for Realtime Data Source Type that you can select your type of data source.
once you select that, it would show the existing ones (which you wouldn’t if just starting to set it up).  There should be an Add and Delete button to the left of the Linked Maps button.
if you don’t have these, it might be that you aren’t set up as Admin.  Or the other possibility is that the GP Connector user doesn’t have permissions to create the tables/triggers that these types will need to create.

Patrick, Thanks. There is no option next to “Linked Maps” for either Add or Delete. I am setup as an admin user. The GP Connector user is ‘sa’. Any ideas?

I tried to go through SmartConnect maintenance and “Re-Register Real-Time Triggers”. I noticed in the “Details” section, these references to Real-Time data sources:
Real-Time Data Sources Deregistered.
Deregistering Real-Time Data Sources…
Microsoft Dynamics Gp Real-Time Datasources Upgraded.
Upgrading Microsoft Dynamics Gp Real-Time Datasources…

Why would it be Deregistering them?

1. “Any ideas? “
never run into this. only thing I can think of is the font size setting.

2. “Why would it be Deregistering them? “
because maintenance unreisters the triggers then re-registers them again. there is a checkbox to do that or not.

I checked the font setting, and it isn’t that, I have tried “running as administrator” and everything else I can think of but still don’t get the option to add a real time data source. This is really frustrating where this is a key functionality of the product, and yet, we can’t use it.

To create a real-time data source, select the data source type (SQL or CRM), then click the Create button in the ribbon.  (Same button you’d use to create a map).
