PowerExchange for PostgreSQL Connection Properties

PowerExchange for PostgreSQL Connection Properties

When you configure a PowerExchange for PostgreSQL connection, you define the connection attributes that the PowerCenter Integration Service uses to connect to the PostgreSQL database.
The following table describes the PostgreSQL connection properties:
Connection Property
Description
Host Name
Host name of the PostgreSQL server to which you want to connect.
Port
Port number for the PostgreSQL server to which you want to connect.
Default is 5432.
Database
The PostgresSQL database name.
User Name
User name to access the PostgreSQL database.
Password
Password for the PostgreSQL database user name.
Encryption Method
Determines whether the data exchanged between the PowerCenter Integration Service and the PostgreSQL database server is encrypted:
Select one of the following encryption methods:
  • noEncryption. Establishes a connection without using SSL. Data is not encrypted.
  • SSL. Establishes a connection using SSL. Data is encrypted using SSL. If the PostgreSQL database server does not support SSL, the connection fails.
  • requestSSL. Attempts to establish a connection using SSL. If the PostgreSQL database server does not support SSL, the PowerCenter Integration Service establishes an unencrypted connection.
Default is noEncryption.
Validate Server Certificate
Applicable if you enable the encryption method to SSL or requestSSL.
Select the
Validate Server Certificate
option so that the PowerCenter Integration Service validates the server certificate that is sent by the PostgreSQL database server. If you specify the
Hostname In Certificate
parameter, the PowerCenter Integration Service also validates the host name in the certificate.
TrustStore
Applicable if you select SSL or requestSSL as the encryption method and the Validate Server Certificate option.
The path and name of the truststore file, which contains the list of the Certificate Authorities (CAs) that the PostgreSQL client trusts.
TrustStore Password
Applicable if you select SSL or requestSSL as the encryption method and the Validate Server Certificate option.
The password to access the truststore file that contains the SSL certificate.
Host Name In Certificate
Optional when you select SSL or requestSSL as the encryption method and the Validate Server Certificate option.
Specifying a host name ensures additional security and the PowerCenter Integration Service validates the host name included in the connection with the host name in the SSL certificate.
KeyStore
Applicable if you select SSL as the encryption method and when client authentication is enabled on the PostgreSQL database server.
The path and the file name of the key store. The keystore file contains the certificates that the PostgreSQL client sends to the PostgreSQL server in response to the server's certificate request.
KeyStore Password
Applicable if you select SSL as the encryption method and when client authentication is enabled on the PostgreSQL database server.
The password for the keystore file required for secure communication.
Key Password
Applicable if you select SSL as the encryption method and when client authentication is enabled on the PostgreSQL database server.
Required when individual keys in the keystore file have a different password than the keystore file.
Additional Connection Properties
Additional connection parameters that you want to use.
You must provide the connection parameters as semicolon-separated key-value pairs. For example,
ConnectionRetryCount=2; ConnectionRetryDelay=5
Crypto Protocol Versions
Required if you enable the encryption method to SSL or requestSSL.
Specifies a cryptographic protocol or a list of cryptographic protocols when you use an encrypted connection.
You can select from the following protocols:
  • SSLv3
  • TLSv1
  • TLSv1_1
  • TLSv1_2
