Before You Begin
This tutorial shows you how to connect SQL Developer to a database in Oracle Autonomous Data Warehouse Cloud, and then create tables. This tutorial takes approximately 10 minutes to complete.
Oracle Autonomous Data Warehouse Cloud Tutorial Series
This is the second in a series of tutorials for the Oracle Autonomous Data Warehouse Cloud. Perform the tutorials sequentially.
- Provisioning Autonomous Data Warehouse Cloud
- Connecting SQL Developer and Creating Tables
- Loading Your Data
- Running a Query on Sample Data
- Using Oracle Machine Learning with Autonomous Data Warehouse Cloud (set of additional tutorials)
Oracle SQL Developer can connect to Oracle Autonomous Data Warehouse Cloud using a security credentials zip file that you created in the previous tutorial, or a credentials zip file provided by your Autonomous Data Warehouse Cloud administrator.
In this tutorial, you define a SQL Developer connection to a database in Autonomous Data Warehouse Cloud. You then use SQL Developer to create tables in the database.
What Do You Need?
- Access to an instance of Autonomous Data Warehouse Cloud (see Using Autonomous Data Warehouse Cloud)
- Completion of previous tutorial, Getting
Started with Oracle Autonomous Data Warehouse Cloud,
in which the user
adwc_useris created and a client credentials wallet zip file is downloaded
- The password for the data
adwc_userthat was created in the previous tutorial
- Oracle SQL Developer (see Oracle
Technology Network download site). We recommend that you
download version 18.2 or later, because this version contains
enhancements for key Autonomous Data Warehouse Cloud features.
SQL Developer 17.3.1 or later will also work with Autonomous
Data Warehouse Clou; versions earlier than 17.3.1 will not.
If you are a Windows user on 64-bit platform, download the 'Windows 64-bit with JDK 9 included' distribution as it includes the files necessary to run SQL Developer and connect to your Autonomous Data Warehouse Cloud database.
If you are a non-Windows user, download and install the appropriate Java 8 JDK for your Operating System.
- A client credentials zip file and its keystore password, that you defined in the previous tutorial or obtained from your Autonomous Data Warehouse Cloud administrator. This file contains security credentials to connect SQL Developer to your Autonomous Data Warehouse Cloud database.
Define a SQL Developer Connection
First, define a SQL Developer connection as the user
to a database in your Autonomous Data Warehouse Cloud.
- Open SQL Developer on your local computer. In the
Connections panel, right-click Connections
and select New
Do not right-click Database Schema Service Connections. That menu selection is for connecting to a different Oracle cloud service, the Oracle Database Schema Service.
- The New/Select Database Connection dialog appears. Enter the following information:
- Connection Name - Enter the name for this cloud connection.
- Username - Enter the database username . Use the
adwc_userdatabase account that you created in the previous tutorial.
- Password - Enter the password that you specified when
adwc_userin the previous tutorial.
Note: as a reminder, the password you specified in the previous tutorial met the following requirements:
- The password must be between 12 and 60 characters long and must include at least one uppercase letter, one lowercase letter, and one numeric character.
- The password cannot contain the username.
- The password cannot be one of the last four passwords used for the same username.
- The password cannot contain the double quote (") character
- Connection Type - Select Cloud PDB.
- Configuration File - Click Browse, and select the path to your local copy of the Client Credentials zip file, downloaded from the Autonomous Data Warehouse Cloud service console by you, or given to you by your Autonomous Data Warehouse Cloud administrator.
- Keystore Password -
If using SQL Developer 18.2.0 or newer: Starting with version 18.2.0, SQL Developer does not require that you enter a Keystore Password and does not provide the Keystore Password field.
If using a version of SQL Developer older than 18.2.0: Enter the password that was generated when you or your Autonomous Transaction Processing administrator downloaded the Client Credentials zip file from the Autonomous Transaction Processing console.
- Service -In the drop-down menu, service selections are
prepended with database names. Select the low, medium or
high menu item for your database. These service levels map
to the LOW, MEDIUM, and HIGH consumer groups, which provide
different levels of performance and concurrency.
Note: Earlier versions of SQL Developer may not support this feature.
Status: Success displays at the bottom left of the New/Select Database Connection dialog.
An entry for the new connection appears under Connections.
Create SH Tables in your Autonomous Data Warehouse Cloud Database
After you have connected SQL Developer to your Autonomous Data
Warehouse Cloud database, use a SQL Developer worksheet to
CREATE TABLE statements to create the SH
tables (sales history tables from an Oracle
sample schema) in the
schema. In the next tutorial, you will load data into these
tables from an object store.
- Copy and paste this
code snippet to a SQL Developer worksheet. Run the
script to create the
SHtables and click Commit.
Examine the SH Tables that you Created
Now that you have created the
SH tables, take a
moment to examine them. In the next tutorial, you will load data
into these tables from an object store.
- The SQL Developer Script
Output panel shows the tables that have been created in the
user named adwc_user.
- Note that the new tables also
appear in the SQL Developer Connections panel.
- Examine the details of each
column of the
- Click the Data
tab of the CHANNELS table. Note that so far, you
have defined tables, but these tables are not yet populated
- In the next tutorial, "Loading
Your Data", you will load data from an object store into
