OpKey provides an inbuilt database connectivity engine which helps users to perform different kind of database operations. Currently OpKey supports following databases:
- ORACLE and
- SQL SERVER
ConnectDatabse (String DriverName, String ConnectionString).
ConnectDatabse Keyword takes two parameters DriverName and ConnectionString.
Here is the list of databases, their Drivers, and connection string.
* For Oracle Data base connectivity, Oracle Data Access Components (compatible ODAC drivers to the installed Oracle version) needs to be installed on the machine from where the user wants to establish the database connection. For downloading compatible ODAC drivers, please Click here
To connect MySQl through ODBC
- User will have to check the connectivity of the agent machine and where the database is
- User will have to check the version of MySQL Database.
- The ODBC driver will have to be installed of the same version as that of MySQL Database. User will have to install the ODBC Connector. It can be downloaded online or a user can check with their respective IT Department.
ODBC Configuration with MySQL
To configure ODBC for MySQL Database the user will have to follow the below steps:

How User Can Connect MySQL through OpKey
Users can verify with the help of “Two Keywords”: “Connect Database” for securing the connection and “ExecuteQuery” to run a query, fill the details and click OK.
Connect Database has two components, one is Driver, and the second is Connection String.
The user will have to put details of “system.data.odbc” on the Driver column and “DSN=Required DSN Name Configured in ODBC” on the Connection String Column.
For the Execute Query, the user will have to fill in details of “Sample Query” and “Command Time”
For respective queries, there will be respective results. When the connection gets established, both the queries will be executed which will display the results as True or False.
ODBC Configuration with PostgreSQL
User will have to enter the data for Driver as “system.data.odbc” and Connection as DriverODBC for PostgreSQL.
To connect ODBC with PostgreSQL
1.User will have to check the connectivity of the agent machine and where the database is installed.
