Connection to Oracle Cloud ODBC

If you do not have the Oracle ODBC. driver enabled, check our documentation below on how to enable it 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 System ODBC Data Source

Check below the entire step by step to create an ODBC data source to connect to Scriptcase.

NOTE: ODBC must be created on the same server where ScriptCase is installed.

1 - Access your ODBC Data Source Manager and select according to your architecture. We will select the x64 version:

ODBC Manager

2 - When entering the ODBC Data Sources Administrator, select the DSN System tab and click on Add to create your connection to your Oracle Database.

Creating DSN

3 - After that, it is necessary to select the Driver to connect to Oracle. Select Driver: Oracle in instantclient_19_6

Selecting ODBC Driver

4 - Now, enter the connection parameters as in the example below:

  • Data Source Name: Define here the name of the ODBC object that will be used when connecting to Scriptcase.

  • Description: Write a definition for the Data Source, what is the purpose for example.

  • TNS Service Name: It is the item is right after the IP on your Oracle Cloud console, as in the image below. EX: 192.168.254.189/DB.oracle.com

Check which endpoint to use for the connection:

Endpoint Oracle

  • User ID: Inform the user that will be used in the connection for authentication.

Configuring ODBC Driver

5 - Test the connection to check that all parameters have been filled in correctly.

You will be asked to enter the password for connection.

Testing ODBC Driver

6 - Click OK to complete this process.

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

Creating a new connection

or access the Database > New connection menu.

Creating a new connection

After that, a screen will appear with all database connections.

3 - Select the Oracle Cloud connection.

Selecting the database 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 Data Source Name created.
    • EX: 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.

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

  • Owner: Inform the user who sees the tables informed for display.
    • User must be capitalized as in the example above.
  • View: Choose whether tables for the informed owner are displayed.

NOTE: By using table filtering, you eliminate unnecessary tables for your project and improves the performance of your Oracle 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
