Enable TeamForge (Oracle Datamart) for queries from external tools

You must enable, then restart TeamForge so that you can use an external tool to query the datamart directly.

You can use external reporting tools to connect directly to a datamart only if you do not have a single-box installation using localhost:SERVICES.

  1. In site-options.conf, set REPORTS_DATABASE_READ_ONLY_USER and REPORTS_DATABASE_READ_ONLY_PASSWORD with your user and password.
  2. On the TeamForge host machine, enable REPORTS_DATABASE_HOST and REPORTS_DATABASE_PORT for remote access.
  3. Provision services.
    • teamforge provision

    TeamForge 17.4 (and later) installer expects the system locale to be LANG=en_US.UTF-8. TeamForge "provision" command fails otherwise.

You can now enable trusted users to establish connections by providing them with values of options REPORTS_DATABASE_HOST, REPORTS_DATABASE_PORT, REPORTS_DATABASE_READ_ONLY_USER, and REPORTS_DATABASE_READ_ONLY_PASSWORD.
