Connection to Oracle Cloud

If you do not have the Oracle 8.0.5 or Higher, Oracle PDO, and Oracle 8. drivers enabled, check our documentation below on how to enable both in Scriptcase for connection.

CAUTION: If you do not have an Oracle 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 and the Oracle database.

1 - Access a project from your Scriptcase.

2 - Click the New Connection icon to create a connection

Connection

Enter the parameters for connecting to your Oracle Cloud database as follows:

Connecting to the database

  • Connection name: Define the name of your new connection. By default, Scriptcase adds the prefix conn along with the database name.

  • DBMS Driver: Select the Oracle Driver to connect. In this example, we use the Oracle PDO Driver.

  • Database Name: Enter the IP or domain of the server where the database is installed together with the Service Name (Endpoint) which is right after the IP in the image below. EX: 192.168.254.189/DB.oracle.com

Check which endpoint to use for the connection:

Endpoint Oracle

  • Username: Inform the user to authenticate the connection to your Oracle database.
    • For Oracle connections, the user must be capitalized, as in the example.
  • 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.
