UFT API testing – Database connection
Question ID: 107874

I’m fairly inexperienced with databases. If I want to use the database activities in a UFT API test, is there anything special I need to know about specifying a connection? The database is an IBM Netezza database. I’m not sure what to ask the developers for. Should I ask them for a JDBC connection string?

I have not worked with IBM Netezza or JDBC connection with UFT API and it is not listed in UFT documentation. Recommend looking at the following Microfocus online help.

- [Add data sources to an API test][1]
- [Database Data Source Properties Tab - (Properties Pane - API Testing)][2]
- [Set Database Connection Page][3]
