Allow custom jdbc connection properities in installer

Mike Zhao shared this idea 4 months ago

Currently when building the connection to the Yellowfin configuration database, our installer will construct the jdbc url for the client based on certain properties (db name, host, etc)

Unfortunately this means any additional parameters required by the client (namely SSL connections) are not available without modifying the web.xml file after installation. It would be nice to be able to specify the connection string manually or allow users the option to include additional parameters of their own:

option.db.jdbcurl = jtds:jdbc://localhost:1433/mydb?param1=x

option.db.connectionparams = usessl=true;myparam=false;

Hi Mike,

Thanks for reaching out to support with your idea, personally I think it's a good one, that would benefit many! We've gone ahead and created a developer task to look into this desired functionality on your behalf. Updates to the task will be provided here as they are available. I will in turn mark this as Idea Logged for now, feel welcome to reply here with further related inquiries.

Thanks,

Hi Eric,

Thanks for the quick feedback. I will track this ticket, this will allow us to provide all installer customization in an unified approach.

There could be some minor implementation details, like when url is provided, then no need to provide JDBC type etc. But I will let the development team to make their choices.


Thanks,

Mike
