Connect to Oracle

To create an Oracle data source in Wyn Enterprise, follow these steps.

Note: The supported version is Oracle 10g and higher (the Oracle Client installation is required). For Oracle 11g or higher, the Oracle Client installation is not required.

To create an Oracle data source in Wyn Enterprise, follow these steps.

  1. On the Resource Portal, navigate to Create (+) > Create Data Source.

  2. Select Oracle in the data source list on the left or in the icon view on the right.

  3. Fill in the database configuration information for the selected data source.




A custom input data source name (required field).


A host name or host IP.


A port number, the default is 1521.


A user name to connect to the Oracle database.


A password of the Oracle user.

Service Name*

Enter the server Oracle instance name, such as ORCL, or click the drop-down to select the instance.

Use Configuration String (Advanced)

Use this option to connect to the data provider through a connection string. The format for the connection string is: USER ID=myUserId; Password=myPassword; Data Source="(DESCRIPTION=(ADDRESS=(PROTOCOL=TCP)(HOST= myOracleDBHost)(PORT=myOracleDBPort))(CONNECT_DATA=(SERVICE_NAME=myOracleDBServiceName)));In addition, you can use the user context attribute in the string to filter data, in the format "@{User context name}" such as "@{DBName}". See User Context for details.

Use Table/Field Name Mapping

If you check this option, you can either import a CSV file or manually enter the display names for the required tables or fields in the Mapping dialog. In case of the RDBMS databases, you can also import the name mapping information from another database. For more information on mapping table and column names, visit this topic.

* Required fields

  1. Verify the Oracle connection by clicking Test Connection. If the data source is available, and the credentials are correct, you receive a notification on successful connection.

  2. Click Create after the connection is successful.

    You can view the added data source in the Categories tab of the Resource Portal.

Note: If Wyn Enterprise is installed in a Linux system and needs to connect to the Oracle data source in the Windows system, you must first set the time zone in the Linux system to the same time zone as the Oracle data source and restart the Wyn Enterprise system.
