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.
dataEncryption
Required.
Enables full security encryption of SQL requests, responses, and data on Windows.
To enable data encryption on Unix, add the command UseDataEncryption=Yes to the DSN in the odbc.ini file.
authenticationType
Required. Authenticates the user.
Enter of the following values for the type of the authentication:
  • Native. Authenticates your user name and password against the Teradata database specified in the connection.
  • LDAP. Authenticates user credentials against the external LDAP directory service.
Default is Native.
hadoopConnector
Required if you want to enable Sqoop connectivity for the data object that uses the JDBC connection. The Data Integration Service runs the mapping in the Hadoop run-time environment through Sqoop.
You can configure Sqoop connectivity for relational data objects, customized data objects, and logical data objects that are based on a JDBC-compliant database.
Set the value to
SQOOP_146
to enable Sqoop connectivity.
hadoopConnectorArgs
Optional. Enter the arguments that Sqoop must use to connect to the database. Enclose the Sqoop arguments within single quotes. Separate multiple arguments with a space.
For example,
hadoopConnectorArgs='--<Sqoop argument 1> --<Sqoop argument 2>'
To read data from or write data to Teradata through Teradata Connector for Hadoop (TDCH) specialized connectors for Sqoop, define the TDCH connection factory class in the hadoopConnectorArgs argument. The connection factory class varies based on the TDCH Sqoop Connector that you want to use.
  • To use Cloudera Connector Powered by Teradata, configure the hadoopConnectorArgs argument as follows:
    hadoopConnectorArgs='-Dsqoop.connection.factories=com.cloudera.connector.teradata.TeradataManagerFactory'
  • To use Hortonworks Connector for Teradata (powered by the Teradata Connector for Hadoop), configure the hadoopConnectorArgs argument as follows:
    hadoopConnectorArgs='-Dsqoop.connection.factories=org.apache.sqoop.teradata.TeradataManagerFactory'
If you do not enter Sqoop arguments, the Data Integration Service constructs the Sqoop command based on the JDBC connection properties.
