Important: This connector requires an on-premise agent and is only for SQL (not SODA).
A. Set up an Oracle DB (SQL) connection
Start establishing a connection to Oracle DB (SQL) in either of the following ways:
- From the Resources menu, select Connections. Then, click + Create connection at the top right.
– or –
- While working in a new or existing integration, you can add an application to a flow simply by clicking Add source or Add destination/lookup.
In the resulting Application list, select Oracle DB (SQL).
The Create connection pane opens with required and advanced settings.
B. Describe the Oracle DB connection
At this point, you’re presented with general settings about the Oracle DB connection:
Name (required): Provide a clear and distinguishable name. Throughout integrator.io imports and exports, you will have the option to choose this new connection, and a unique identifier will prove helpful later when selecting among a list of connections that you’ve created.
Application (required, not-editable): A reminder of the app you’re editing.
Agent (required): To connect to an on-premise application integrator.io requires that an agent be installed on a computer that has network access to the on-premise application. Once the agent has been installed you can reference the agent with the drop-down menu here. A single agent can be used by multiple different connections.
C. Edit required Oracle DB (SQL) settings
At this point, you’re presented with a series of options for establishing Oracle DB (SQL) authentication.
Host (required): Enter the hostname or IP address of the server you are connecting to.
Username (required): Enter the username to authenticate with the server.
Password (required): Enter the password to authenticate with the server.
Instance name (optional): This field specifies the instance name to connect to. The SQL Server Browser service must be running on the database server, and UDP port 1434 on the database server must be reachable. If you set this field you cannot also set the port field because "instanceName" and "port" are mutually exclusive connection options.
Port (optional): The server port to connect to. The default port is 1521.
D. Edit advanced Oracle DB settings
Before continuing, you have the opportunity to provide additional configuration information, if needed, for the Oracle DB connection.
Service Name: Enter the service name. In this case "ORCL".
Server Type: Choose one of the following server types from the drop-down menu:
E. Test and save the connection
Once you have configured the Oracle DB connection, you have a few options for continuing:
- Save – click this button to test the connection, commit the new connection so that it will be available to all integrations for your account
- Save & close – click to test and save the connection and exit the Create connection pane
- Cancel – click to exit without saving any new changes
- Test connection – click this button to verify that your new connection is free of errors
When you test or save the connection, it is verified before continuing.
The new connection is now successfully added to your account. It will be applied to the current source or destination app, if you created it within a flow. Otherwise, you may proceed to register the connection with an integration.
