Teradata Parallel Transporter Connection Options

Teradata Parallel Transporter Connection Options

Use connection options to define a Teradata PT connection.
Enter connection options in the following format:
... -o option_name='value' option_name='value' ...
To enter multiple options, separate them with a space. To enter a value that contains a space or other non-alphanumeric character, enclose the value in quotation marks.
The following table describes Teradata PT connection options for infacmd isp CreateConnection and UpdateConnection commands:
Option Description
UserName Required. Teradata database user name with the appropriate write permissions to access the database.
Password Required. Password for the Teradata database user name.
DriverName Required. Name of the Teradata JDBC driver.
ConnectionString Required. JDBC URL to fetch metadata.
TDPID Required. Name or IP address of the Teradata database machine.
databaseName Required. Teradata database name.
If you do not enter a database name, Teradata PT API uses the default login database name.
DataCodePage Optional. Code page associated with the database.
When you run a mapping that loads to a Teradata target, the code page of the Teradata PT connection must be the same as the code page of the Teradata target.
Default is UTF-8.
Tenacity Optional. Number of hours that Teradata PT API continues trying to log on when the maximum number of operations run on the Teradata database.
Must be a positive, non-zero integer. Default is 4.
MaxSessions Optional. Maximum number of sessions that Teradata PT API establishes with the Teradata database.
Must be a positive, non-zero integer. Default is 4.
MinSessions Optional. Minimum number of Teradata PT API sessions required for the Teradata PT API job to continue.
Must be a positive integer between 1 and the Max Sessions value. Default is 1.
Sleep Optional. Number of minutes that Teradata PT API pauses before it retries to log on when the maximum number of operations run on the Teradata database.
Must be a positive, non-zero integer. Default is 6.
useMetadataJdbcUrl Optional.
Set this option to true to Indicate that the Teradata Connector for Hadoop (TDCH) must use the JDBC URL that you specified in the connection string.
Set this option to false to specify a different JDBC URL that TDCH must use when it runs the mapping.
tdchJdbcUrl Required.
JDBC URL that TDCH must use when it runs the mapping.
