    Can we use the SQL Connection Objects in a script?

    I have a sql connection object with credentials to a database and the password is not shared. Its being entered by the application team the first time and we use this object for all SQL jobs.

    Is there a way I can use this object in a script, just like I am using as a connection?

    AE Version: 12.0.1

    Hi

     

    Is there a way I can use this object in a script, just like I am using as a connection?

    Which script functions do you want to use in combination with the CONN object?

     

    cheers, Wolfgang

    I want to use it in a shell script to run a SQL through a SQLPLUS command.

    I was able to find the function : GET_CONNECTION and get the username and password. But the password is encrypted and the SQLPLUS is not liking it.

    You'll have the run the encrypted password through the job messenger. eg. UC_JOBMD CMD=

     

    There should be quite a few community articles on this process
