MariaDB Partition Connector

Version 2

 

Intro

MariaDB is a community-developed fork of the MySQL relational database management system. Partitioning enables faster query execution and distribution of files over multiple storage devices. You can easily and securely access your data in minutes to get more visibility. Use Domo's MariaDB Partition Connector to get your data into Domo based on the number of past days provided. To learn more about MariaDB, visit https://mariadb.com/docs/.

You connect to your MariaDB data account in the Data Center. This topic discusses the fields and menus that are specific to the MariaDB Partition 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 your MariaDB database and create a DataSet, you must have the following:

  • The username and password you use to log into your MariaDB account

  • The host name for the database

  • The port number for the database

  • The database or schema name

You can also include the URL where your SSL CA Certificate is located, though this is optional.

Before you can connect to a MariaDB database, you must also white list 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 Your MariaDB Database

This section enumerates the options in the Credentials and Details panes in the MariaDB Partition 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 MariaDB database. The following table describes what is needed for each field:  

Field

Description

Host Enter the hostname or IP address of your database server. Example: db.company.com
Port Enter the port number for your database.
Database Name Enter your database name.
Username Enter your MariaDB username.
Password Enter your MariaDB password.
CA Certificate Paste the text for your CA certificate or enter the URL where your certificate is located. This is optional.

Once you have entered valid MariaDB credentials, you can use the same account any time you go to create a new MariaDB Partition 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. You can choose a specific database table and partition column name. You can also specify the number of past days you want to get data for.

Menu

Description

Query Enter the SQL query to execute. Example: select DATE from employee
Table Name Select the database table.
Partition Column Name Select partition column name.
Past Days Enter the number of past days that you want to get data for. Value can be X, where X is a positive integer. Example: 30.
Date Format Select the required date format. By default yyyy-MM-dd will be used.
Custom Date Format Enter the custom date format you wish to apply to your data.
Tinyint values treated as bit (boolean) values Select Yes if you want the tiny integer values to be treated as boolean values, else select No.
