Description

This a component for working with object-relational database management systems. It works with the works with the MySQL, PostgreSQL, Oracle and MSSQL DBs.

Environment variables

For integration-testing is needed to specify following environment variables:

Connection to DB:

  • CONN_USER_name - user login
  • CONN_PASSWORD_name - user password
  • CONN_DBNAME_name - DataBase name
  • CONN_HOST_name - DataBase host
  • CONN_PORT_name - DataBase port

Where name can have these values: MySQL, PostgreSQL, Oracle or MSSQL. For example: CONN_USER_MySQL

Credentials

You need to use following properties to configure credentials:

DB Engine Port Limitation
MySQL 3306 compatible with MySQL Server 5.5, 5.6, 5.7 and 8.0
PostgreSQL 5432 compatible with PostgreSQL 8.2 and higher
Oracle 1521 compatible with Oracle Database 8.1.7 - 12.1.0.2
MSSQL 1433 compatible with Microsoft SQL Server 2008 R2 and higher

Completeness Matrix

The component completeness matrix gives the technical details about Salesforce objects this component covers.

Connection URI

Provide hostname of the server, e.g. acme.com

Database Name

Provide name of database at the instance that you want to interact with.

User

Provide a username that has permissions to interact with the Database.

Password

Provide a password of the user that has permissions to interact with the Database.

Configuration properties

Optional field. Provide a configuration properties for connections to the Database, e.g. useUnicode=true&serverTimezone=UTC

Limitation: Configuration properties value may not be checked during Credentials Verification, so in case of using this field make sure that it contains correct input.

Triggers

JDBC component includes the following triggers:

  1. Select trigger
    This trigger will execute an SQL query that returns multiple results, it has limitations on the query and suited only for SELECT type of queries. The trigger will remember last execution timestamp and let you build queries on it.

  2. Get Rows Polling trigger
    This trigger will execute select query from specified table with simple criteria of selected datetime or timestamp table. The trigger will remember last execution timestamp and let you build queries on it.s

  3. SELECT trigger (Deprecated)
    This action exists in JDBC component only for backward compatibility. New Select trigger is recommended to use.

Actions

JDBC component includes the following actions:

  1. Execute custom query action
    Action to execute custom SQL query from provided request string.

  2. Select action
    This action will execute an SQL query that returns multiple results, it has limitations on the query and suited only for SELECT type of queries.

  3. Lookup Row By Primary Key action
    This action will execute select query from specified table, as criteria can be used only PRIMARY KEY. The action returns only one result (a primary key is unique).

  4. Insert action
    This action will execute insert query into the specified table. The action returns boolean value is execution insert successful or not.

  5. Delete Row By Primary Key action
    This action will execute delete query from specified table, as criteria can be used only PRIMARY KEY. The action returns an integer value that indicates the number of rows affected, the returned value can be 0 or 1 (a primary key is unique).

  6. Execute stored procedure action
    This action calls stored procedure from selected DB Schema and Stored procedure name.

  7. Upsert Row By Primary Key action
    This action will execute select command from specified table, as search criteria can be used only PRIMARY KEY, and execute insert command by PRIMARY KEY with specified field, if result does not found, else - action will execute update command by PRIMARY KEY with specified field. The action returns only one result row (a primary key is unique).

  8. Create or update record action (Deprecated)
    This action exists in JDBC component only for backward compatibility. Please use Upsert row by primary key instead.

Current limitations

  1. Only tables with one PRIMARY KEY is supported. You will see the message Table has not Primary Key. Should be one Primary Key , if the selected table doesn’t have a primary key. Also, you will see the message Composite Primary Key is not supported , if the selected table has composite primary key.

  2. The current implementation of the action Upsert By Primary Key doesn’t mark non-nullable fields as required fields at a dynamic metadata. In case of updating such fields with an empty value you will get SQL Exception Cannot insert the value NULL into.... You should manually fill in all non-nullable fields with previous data, if you want to update part of columns in a row, even if data in that fields doesn’t change.

  3. The current implementation of the action Execute stored procedure doesn’t support:
    • ResultSet MSSQL output.
    • Any array types parameters.
    • MySQL schemas dropdown list. (MySQL does not have schemas by definition)
  4. Rebound mechanism only works for this SQL State:
    • MySQL: 40001, XA102
    • Oracle: 61000
    • MSSQL: 40001
    • PostgreSQL: 40P01
