setRdbcX stored procedure (Variation 2)

Defines a new data source connection on one or more endpoint nodes. This variation is intended for use with discrete parameters. The schema is DVSYS.

Input parameters

src_type
The type of this required parameter is VARCHAR(20). Specifies the data source type.
host_name
The type of this required parameter is VARCHAR(2000). Specifies the data source hostname.
db_port
The type of this required parameter is INTEGER. Specifies the network port of the data source service.
database_name
The type of this optional parameter is VARCHAR(128). Specifies the name of the database for the connection.
connection_options
The type of this optional parameter is VARCHAR(2000). Specifies a comma-delimited list of extra options in the following format: '<key1>=<value1>, <key2>=<value2>, ...'.
user
The type of this required parameter is VARCHAR(128). Specifies a database username .
password
The type of this unencrypted required parameter is VARCHAR(128). Specifies a database user password.
use_SSL
The type of this required parameter is INTEGER. Specifies whether the database connection uses SSL. Valid values are 0 (the connection does not use SSL) and 1 (the connection uses SSL).
validate_cert
The type of this required parameter is INTEGER. Specifies whether the endpoint validates the database server SSL certificate. Valid values are 0 (no validation) and 1 (validation is required).
cert_host_name
The type of this optional parameter is VARCHAR(2000). Specifies the name of the host that is associated with the SSL certificate. Specifying an empty string or the null value prevents hostname validation.
SSL_certificate
The type of this optional parameter is VARCHAR(32672). Specifies a database server certificate, if required.
node_name
The type of this required parameter is VARCHAR(32672). Specifies the names of the nodes on which the data source is defined.
additional_options
The type of this optional parameter is VARCHAR(32672). Specifies a comma-delimited list of extra parameters in the following format: '<key1>=<value1>, <key2>=<value2>, ...'. Supported options include EDITCID, DRIVERID, and JWTTOKEN. If you specify EDITCID, existing connection information is replaced with the new information that you provide. For example:
call DVSYS.setRdbcX('old_dsDriver', 'old_dsUrl', 'old_usr', '[email protected]', '', '', '', 'NodeIdForMyDB2', 'EDITCID=MYSQL11941', ?, ?, ?)
DRIVERID (the ID of the driver that is to be downloaded) and JWTTOKEN (the Java web token) are used together when these parameters are set. The connector/endpoint downloads the driver from the server.

Output parameters

connection_ID
The type of this parameter is VARCHAR(20). Represents the generated connection ID for Watson Query.
number_of_defined_connections
The type of this parameter is INTEGER. Represents the total number of added connections.
diagnostics
The type of this parameter is VARCHAR(32672). Represents diagnostic output if a failure occurs.

Example

call DVSYS.setRdbcX('DB2','9.30.167.128','50000','TPCDS','','<user>','<password>','0','0','','','qpendpoint_1','',?,?,?);
If you want to edit a data source with a new password, you can use the additional_options parameter with EDITCID.
call DVSYS.setRdbcX('DB2','9.30.167.128','50000','TPCDS','','<user>','<password>','0','0','','','qpendpoint_1','EDITCID=DB2002',?,?,?);
