You can create connections to one or more Oracle databases from Designer Cloud Enterprise Edition.
NOTE: Dots (.) in the names of Oracle tables or table columns are not supported.
- If you haven't done so already, you must create and deploy an encryption key file for the Alteryx node to be shared by all relational connections. For more information, see Create Encryption Key File.
NOTE: You cannot disable type inference for Oracle sources. This is a known issue.
If you are connecting to the Oracle database using SSL, additional configuration is required in Oracle.
Designer Cloud Enterprise Edition supports the use of the following SSL ciphers to communicate with Oracle:
SSL_RSA_WITH_3DES_EDE_CBC_SHA SSL_RSA_WITH_RC4_128_SHA SSL_RSA_WITH_RC4_128_MD5 SSL_RSA_WITH_DES_CBC_SHA SSL_DH_anon_WITH_3DES_EDE_CBC_SHA SSL_DH_anon_WITH_RC4_128_MD5 SSL_DH_anon_WITH_DES_CBC_SHA SSL_RSA_EXPORT_WITH_RC4_40_MD5 SSL_RSA_EXPORT_WITH_DES40_CBC_SHA
For more information, please see the documentation that is provided with your Oracle distribution.
To create this connection:
- In the Import Data page, click the Plus sign. Then, select the Relational tab. Click the Oracle card.
- You can also create connections through the Connections page. See Connections Page.
For additional details on creating an Oracle connection, see Enable Relational Connections.
