Use an Alternative Database for Vendr Tables

How-To Guide to configure using an alternative database for the tables of Vendr, the eCommerce solution for Umbraco

By default Vendr will use the same database as Umbraco to store it's data in, but as e-commerce and content management have very different database needs, it may be benefitial to house the Vendr database tables in an alternative database.

To do this, you can configure a Vendr specific connection string in your app settings ConnectionStrings section using the vendrDbDSN prefix.

    "ConnectionStrings": {
        "umbracoDbDSN": "Server=umbracoServerAddress;Database=myUmbracoDb;User Id=myUsername;Password=myPassword;",
        "umbracoDbDSN_ProviderName": "Microsoft.Data.SqlClient",
        "vendrDbDSN": "Server=vendrServerAddress;Database=myVendrDb;User Id=myUsername;Password=myPassword;",
        "vendrDbDSN_ProviderName": "Microsoft.Data.SqlClient"

Now when Vendr runs, it will perform all of it's migrations and opperations against this database instead of the default Umbraco database.
