ODBC Connection Options

ODBC Connection Options

Use connection options to define the ODBC 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 ODBC connection options for infacmd isp CreateConnection and UpdateConnection commands:
Optional. Enables pass-through security for the connection. When you enable pass-through security for a connection, the domain uses the client user name and password to log into the corresponding database, instead of the credentials defined in the connection object.
Connection string used to access data from the database.
Enter the connection string in the following format:
<database name>
Required. Code page used to read from a source database or write to a target database or file.
Optional. SQL commands to set the database environment when you connect to the database. The Data Integration Service executes the connection environment SQL each time it connects to the database.
For example,
Enclose special characters in double quotes.
Optional. SQL commands to execute before each transaction. The Data Integration Service executes the transaction SQL at the beginning of each transaction.
For example,
Enclose special characters in double quotes.
Optional. The character that you will use for quotes in this connection.
The type of character used to identify special characters and reserved SQL keywords, such as WHERE. The Data Integration Service places the selected character around special characters and reserved SQL keywords. The Data Integration Service also uses this character for the QuoteChar property. Default is 4.
ODBC Provider
Optional. The type of database to which the Data Integration Service connects using ODBC. For pushdown optimization, specify the database type to enable the Data Integration Service to generate native database SQL. The options are as follows:
  • Other
  • Sybase
  • Microsoft_SQL_Server
  • Teradata
  • Netezza
  • Greenplum
Default is Other.
Optional. Choose to enable quotes or not for this connection.
When enabled, the Data Integration Service places identifier characters around table, view, schema, synonym, and column names when generating and executing SQL against these objects in the connection. Use if the objects have mixed-case or lowercase names. Valid values are True or False. Default is False.
Optional. Enables connection pooling. When you enable connection pooling, the connection pool retains idle connection instances in memory. When you disable connection pooling, the Data Integration Service stops all pooling activity. Valid values are True or False. Default is True.
Optional. Maximum number of idle connections instances that the Data Integration Service maintains for a database connection. Set this value to be more than the minimum number of idle connection instances. Default is 15.
Optional. Number of seconds that a connection exceeding the minimum number of connection instances can remain idle before the connection pool drops it. The connection pool ignores the idle time when it does not exceed the minimum number of idle connection instances. Default is 120.
Optional. Minimum number of idle connection instances that the pool maintains for a database connection. Set this value to be equal to or less than the idle connection pool size. Default is 0.
