Connection to Google Cloud PostgreSQL

If you do not have the PostgreSQL PDO, PostgreSQL 7 or above, PostgreSQL 6.4 or above and PostgreSQL 6.3 or below drivers enabled, check below our documentation on how to enable both in Scriptcase for connection.

ATTENTION: If you don’t have a Google Cloud database created, check how to create it by clicking here.

Creating a connection to Scriptcase

See below how to create a connection in your Scriptcase project, using the enabled Driver (PostgreSQL PDO, PostgreSQL 7 or above, PostgreSQL 6.4 or above and PostgreSQL 6.3 or below.) and the Google Cloud PostgreSQL database.

1 - Access a project from your Scriptcase.

2 - Click the New Connection icon to create a connection.

Creating a new connection

  • SGDB Driver: Select the PostgreSQL Driver for connection. In this example, we use the PostgreSQL PDO Driver.

  • SGDB server: Enter the IP or domain of the Google Cloud server where the database is installed.
  • EX: domain.com ou 192.168.254.178

  • Port: Enter the port for connection. By default, the defined port is 5432.

  • Eschema: Enter the schema for connection to the database.

  • Database: List and select the database you will connect to.
  • EX: samples

  • User: Inform the user to authenticate the connection to your database.

  • Password: Enter the password to complete the authentication process.

  • Test connection: Click this button to get a response to the Scriptcase request to find out if the parameters entered are correct.

Testing the database connection

Filter

Accessing this tab, you can configure which Database items will be displayed on the connection, depending on the owner or not.

Filtering the database connection

Show


It allows the connection to see tables, views, system tables and procedures depending on the items selected by the user. By default, the items Tables and Views are already selected by Scriptcase.

  • Tables: Selecting this option, the tables in your database will be displayed.
    • By default, Scriptcase enables this option.

  • Views: By selecting this option, the views of your database will be displayed.
    • By default, Scriptcase enables this option.

  • System Tables: Selecting this option, the system tables of your database will be displayed.

  • Procedures: Selecting this option, the procedures of your database will be displayed.

Filters


Allows you to define which tables and owners are displayed.

  • Tables: You can define in this option which tables will be displayed. The configuration can contain a PREFIX%% or name of the tables to display.

    • EX:

    Example of using the prefix


  • Owner: Inform the user who sees the tables informed for display.
    • The user must be in capital letters as in the example above.

  • Show: Choose whether tables for the informed owner are displayed.

NOTE: By using table filtering, you eliminate unnecessary tables for your project and improve the performance of your database connection.

Advanced

In this tab, you have access to specific settings for the connection. The settings made in this session impact the data display and application performance.

Advanced database connection configuration

  • client_encoding: Select the encoding used in your database. In the example above, we use the client_encoding utf8.
    • By default, the utf8 charset is set.

  • Decimal Separator: Select the separator type of the decimal records, between comma and period.
    • By default, the point . is selected as a separator.

  • Persistent Connection: Define whether connections will be closed after the execution of your scripts in Scriptcase applications.
