Steps to integrate Oracle storage with Atlan

Atlan natively supports Oracle, which allows you to seamlessly integrate your Oracle with your Atlan workspace.

๐Ÿ’ญ TL;DR

You can set up an Oracle integration in four easy steps:

  1. Select the source, aka Oracle ๐Ÿ˜‰

  2. Provide your credentials โœ๏ธ

  3. Set up your configuration ๐Ÿ—„๏ธ

  4. Schedule automatic updates ๐Ÿ•‘

๐Ÿ”‘ Oracle user permissions

Oracle schemas are synonymous with owners. So if you want to integrate all tables from a schema into Atlan, you will have to add credentials for the schema's owner.

If you only want Atlan to access certain tables in the schema, you can create a user and grant permission for those specific tables. Wildcard-based (*) table assignment is not possible here.

To integrate specific tables, replace the <schema>, <table_name> and <pass> in the code below:

GRANT create session, SELECT_CATALOG_ROLE TO atlan_user;
--- Repeat the below statement for the tables you want to grant access
GRANT SELECT ON "<schema>"."<table_name>" TO atlan_user;

๐Ÿ“œ Prerequisites for an Oracle integration

Before you get started, you'll need some information to help establish a connection between Atlan and your Oracle account.

  • Hostname: The hostname of your Oracle deployment.

  • Port: The default TCP port for Oracle is usually 1521.

  • Username & password: This is the username and password for your Oracle login credentials.

  • SID: Oracle SID (System Identifier) is the unique name that uniquely identifies your instance/database

๐ŸŒŸ Pro Tip: If you don't have this information handy, reach out to your cloud or database administrator to get these details before you get started!
