Basic Information Page

Specify a name, description, and operation type on the Basic Info page of each trigger and invoke connection in your integration.

Element Description

What do you want to call your endpoint?

Identifies the connection with a meaningful name that defines the purpose of connection. For example, CreateEmployeeInDB for a database connection that adds new employee data. The name can include English alphabetic characters, numbers, underscores, and dashes. The name cannot include:

  • Blank spaces (for example, My DB Connection)

  • Special characters (for example,  #;83& or righ(t)now4)

  • Multibyte characters

What operation do you want to perform?

  • Invoke a Stored Procedure — Select to run a stored procedure on the database.

  • Run a SQL Statement — Select to run a SQL query on the database.

  • Perform an Operation On a Table — Select to perform one of the following operations on a table. You can update or insert multiple records in a single request.

    • Insert

    • Update

    • Insert or Update (Merge)

    • Select

  • When operations in a SQL statement such as Update, Concat, and Merge accept values for the inbound invocation of an integration, they do not work. For example, the following query does not work:

    select concat(empname, 'ss') from DB_AQ where empno=#empno
    select empno from DB_AQ where empname=concat(#empname, 'YY') 

    As a workaround, handle these scenarios during payload mapping. For example, perform a concatenation during mapping of the payload. The final output can then be passed as input to the SQL query.

  • IN/BETWEEN operators are not supported with bind parameters. Use greater than (>) and less than (<) operators instead.
