The Fact Store component stores the facts that you want to be able to retrieve. You can set up a Fact Store either by configuring an IDOL Content component, or by using a SQL database.
The Fact Store content is structured data, containing the entities and properties for your facts. As such, HPE recommends that you use a SQL database as the backend component for your fact store, because it is optimized for querying structured content.
Alternatively, you can use a Lua script to retrieve facts from an external fact store.
The following sections describe how to set up each type of Fact Store backend.
