» Oracle Database Plugin HTTP API

The Oracle database plugin is one of the supported plugins for the database secrets engine. This plugin generates database credentials dynamically based on configured roles for the Oracle database.

» Configure Connection

In addition to the parameters defined by the Database Backend, this plugin has a number of parameters to further configure a connection.

Method Path Produces
POST /database/config/:name 204 (empty body)

» Parameters

  • connection_url (string: <required>) - Specifies the Oracle DSN.

  • max_open_connections (int: 2) - Specifies the maximum number of open connections to the database.

  • max_idle_connections (int: 0) - Specifies the maximum number of idle connections to the database. A zero uses the value of max_open_connections and a negative value disables idle connections. If larger than max_open_connections it will be reduced to be equal.

  • max_connection_lifetime (string: "0s") - Specifies the maximum amount of time a connection may be reused. If <= 0s connections are reused forever.

» Statements

Statements are configured during role creation and are used by the plugin to determine what is sent to the datatabse on user creation, renewing, and revocation. For more information on configuring roles see the Role API in the database secrets engine docs.

» Parameters

The following are the statements used by this plugin. If not mentioned in this list the plugin does not support that statement type.

  • creation_statements (string: <required>) – Specifies the database statements executed to create and configure a user. Must be a semicolon-separated string, a base64-encoded semicolon-separated string, a serialized JSON string array, or a base64-encoded serialized JSON string array. The '{{name}}' and '{{password}}' values will be substituted.

  • revocation_statements (string: "") – Specifies the database statements to be executed to revoke a user. Must be a semicolon-separated string, a base64-encoded semicolon-separated string, a serialized JSON string array, or a base64-encoded serialized JSON string array. The '{{name}}' value will be substituted. If not provided defaults to a generic drop user statement.
