createOrUpdateDataSources

Creates or updates the data sources that are defined by properties files. The properties files will be processed for property replacement using ${{VARIABLE_NAME}} format. See Property Replacement Support for more information about property replacement.

If using multiple files, make sure that the lists contain unique values across files. Best practice would be to use the WebLogic DataSource Name as the list identifier for datasources.

Inputs

Property Name

Property Code

Required

Description

Properties File Path

FILE_PATH_TO_PROPERTIES

No

Comma-separated list of paths to the properties file(s).
If relative paths are given, they are assumed relative to the FD_ARTIFACTS_DIR directory.
If this property is not specified, all properties files in the FD_ARTIFACTS_DIR directory will be processed.

Outputs

Output Name

Required

Description

FDWLS_OUT_IS_RESTART_REQUIRED

No

A boolean value that indicates whether the server needs to be restarted to finish applying the configuration changes. You could use this in a workflow condition.

Artifacts

This operation consumes properties-file artifacts.

Endpoint Selection

This operation will select all available endpoints associated to the Environment/Instance which have a resource type of WLS Admin Server . Since the admin server only runs on one server, it is expected that for a given domain, there will only be one endpoint with a resource type set to WLS Admin Server

Endpoint Execution

This operation will execute on the Admin Server endpoint selected using the WLS Admin Server resource type.

Special Considerations

If Properties File Path is not specified, the FD_ARTIFACTS_DIR folder will be used. If a relative path is specified, the path will be relative to the FD_ARTIFACTS_DIR directory.
WebLogic configuration files including Data Sources are backed up to FD_TEMP_DIR/configbackup before modifications. As with all files in the endpoint working directory, these files will be saved for 3 days before being deleted.

It is important to set up the properties files like the examples below.

Example Folder Structure

  • Properties file can be named as per your requirements. See Example Properties File below.
  • datasources.properties – This is the main properties file. The path to it is referenced by the Properties File Path input.
  • DEV/datasources.properties - optionally create a file here and override some properties with it per environment. The filename must match.
  • PROD/datasources.properties - optionally have several environments.
    • Sub folder names for environment overrides must be FlexDeploy environment code.

Example Property File

This sample file defines two simple data sources with a sub-set of the available properties.

Example Gridlink DataSource Property File

This sample file defines a GridLink data source with a sub-set of the available properties. It could be combined with other data sources in one file, but is separate here for clarity.

Properties File Format

Multiple data sources can be defined in the properties files. The properties files must start with a list of data sources present in the format DSList=ds1,ds2,ds3. Change ds1, ds2, ds3 to names that make sense for your project. Any number of data sources is acceptable. The properties files will be processed for property replacement using ${{VARIABLE_NAME}} format. See the Appendix for more information about property replacement.

If using multiple files, make sure that the lists contain unique values across files. Best practice would be to use the Weblogic Datasource Name as the list identifier for datasources.

Required Properties for Generic and Gridlink Datasources

At a minimum, each data source must contain these properties:

Property Name

Description

DataSourceType

Generic or GridLink (GridLink is supported on WebLogic 12c+ only)

URL

The full JDBC connection URL

ConnectionClass

The JDBC driver

DSName

The display name of the Data Source

User

Database user name

Password

Database Password

JNDINames

Comma-separated list of JNDI names. (e.g. /jdbc/name1,/jdbc/name2)

Required Properties for Multi Data Source DataSources

At a minimum, each data source must contain these properties:

Property Name

Description

DataSourceType

MultiDataSource

DSName

The display name of the Data Source

JNDINames

Comma-separated list of JNDI names. (e.g. /jdbc/name1,/jdbc/name2)

DataSourceListComma-Separated list of DataSource display names (DSName property of those datasources)

Optional Properties for Generic and Gridlink DataSources

These properties are optional. If the property is unsupported by the version of WebLogic you are running, it will be ignored. If not specified in your properties file, the WebLogic 12c defaults shown below will apply. This is also true on updating databases, so it is important to include all the properties you use if modifying an existing environment. You may use as many or as few as you like per data source.
