iDashboards is able to connect to Oracle OCI Database (No SID) by using an Oracle OCI JDBC Driver. A JDBC driver is a software component enabling a Java application to interact with a database. To connect with individual databases, JDBC (Java Database Connectivity API) requires drivers for each database. The JDBC driver gives out the connection to the database and implements the protocol for transferring the query and result between client and database. iDashboards implements native protocols and do not require additional software installed on the driver host. In other words, iDashboards provides driver connectivity with JDBC Data Source via the specified driver. This document explains a step-by-step procedure to create the Data Source with the Oracle OCI JDBC Driver.
Follow the steps below to set up a data source in iDashboards Admin or Data Hub.
- Download the Basic Package and JDBC Supplement Package
- For non-Windows users: Oracle Instant Client Downloads, find those packages for your OS
- Run the Basic Package Installer
- Copy the driver, which is implemented as a .jar file to the following location:
- <iDashboards Installation Folder>\ivizgroup\drivers
- Restart the iDashboards service (iDashboardsSRV)
- Login to iDashboards Admin
- Select Data Sources
- Click New
- Set the Data Source Type to Generic JDBC
- In the Create a Data Source window fill in the highlighted fields:
