Installation Steps

GlueSync SQL to NoSQL for PostgreSQL


In order to have GlueSync working on your PostgreSQL instance you will need to have:

  • valid user credentials with permissions of reading, create triggers and writing to the target tables and respective database

To create a valid user for Gluesync on your Oracle database to run GCD you can run / adapt the following query:
ALTER USER gsuser WITH PASSWORD 'youdecide';

Basic configuration example

This module can be customized by using a configuration file, in JSON format. The file name to use must be specified as parameter when launching the app, with the -f or --file tokens. The file should be composed by union of common configuration file (see here Installation Steps) and source/destination specific configuration:

  "postgresql": {
    "certificatesPath": "/path/to/certs/dir/cert.pem"

  "sourceChangeRetention": 5

PostgreSQL specific configurations are listed under the postgresql property:

  • certificatesPath (optional): the path to the certificates that need to be used when connecting to a PostgreSQL instance using a secure connection. If omitted, no certificates are used;

You can also specify few other options that applies to this configuration, like: * sourceChangeRetention (optional): defaults to 5. Number of retention days preserved into the GlueSync GDC action_logs table inside your Postgres database;
