Oracle Database SSH Connector

Intro

Oracle Database is an object-relational database management system produced and marketed by Oracle Corporation. You can use Domo's Oracle Database SSH Connector to pull data from your Oracle database via an SSH tunnel and compile custom reports. You indicate the data you want by inputting an SQL query.

You connect to Oracle Database in the Data Center. This topic discusses the fields and menus that are specific to the Oracle Database SSH connector user interface. General information for adding DataSets, setting update schedules, and editing DataSet information is discussed in Adding a DataSet Using a Data Connector.

Prerequisites

To connect to Oracle Database with SSH and create a DataSet, you must have the following:

  • The username and password you use to log into your Oracle database

  • The SID of the Oracle database

  • The port number for the Oracle database

  • The Oracle database hostname or IP address

  • The SSH hostname or URL

  • The SSH username and password

  • The SSH port number

  • The SSH private key 

Before you can connect to Oracle Database, you must also whitelist a number of IP addresses on your database server on the port you want to connect to. For the full list of IP addresses, see Whitelisting IP Addresses for Connectors.

Connecting to Oracle Database

This section enumerates the options in the Credentials and Details panes in the Oracle Database SSH Connector page. The components of the other panes in this page, Scheduling and Name & Describe Your DataSet, are universal across most connector types and are discussed in greater length in Adding a DataSet Using a Data Connector.

Credentials Pane

This pane contains fields for entering credentials to connect to your database and SSH server. The following table describes what is needed for each field:  

Field

Description

SSH Server Hostname

Enter the SSH server hostname. 

SSH Username

Enter the SSH username.

SSH Password

Enter the SSH password.

SSH Port

Enter the SSH port number.

Database Hostname

Enter the host name for the Oracle database. 

SSH Private Key

Enter the SSH private key.

Database Name

Enter the Oracle database name.

Database Username

Enter your Oracle username.

Database Password

Enter your Oracle password.

Database Port

Enter your Oracle port number.

Once you have entered valid Oracle Database credentials, you can use the same account any time you go to create a new Oracle Database SSH DataSet. You can manage connector accounts in the Accounts tab in the Data Center. For more information about this tab, see Managing User Accounts for Connectors.

Details Pane

In this pane you create an SQL query to pull data from your database. The Query parameter is required. The other three parameters are here to help you construct this query if you choose.

Menu

Description

Query

Enter the Structured Query Language (SQL) query to use in selecting the data you want. For example:

select * from Employee

If you want help in constructing your query, 

Database Table (Optional)

Select the table containing the data you want to pull into Domo. The selected table will be added to the automatically generated query in the Query Helper field. 

Table Columns (Optional)

Select the table columns with data you want to pull into Domo. The selected columns will be added to the automatically generated query in the Query Helper field. 

Query Helper (Optional)

Copy and paste this query into the Query field if you need help building a query. This query is automatically generated when you select a table and columns in the Database Table and Table Columns fields, respectively.

Other Panes
