This week we’re adding custom driver settings to Ajilius.

While our driver settings are chosen for optimal performance, there have been times when customers have asked for the ability to tailor connections to specific requirements.

We’re now supporting that request through two settings:

  • Connection Parameters. These are extensions to the connection string used by JDBC drivers. Specify connection string parameters in a single line, including delimiters after every parameter.
  • Driver Properties. These are JDBC properties which modify the behaviour of drivers through an API call instead of the connection string. Specify properties as a combination of property-value pairs, with one property per row.

 

The above example shows a modification to the connection string for the Salesforce driver, which adjusts the Salesforce API to version 36, and reduces the timeout setting to 30 seconds.

Please use custom driver settings with extreme care, as invalid settings could cause your ELT jobs to fail. We recommend you check with us before making changes regarding the specific format requirements of each driver.

Ajilius. Customisable automation.
