PostgreSQL as a target

The PostgreSQL target endpoint supports both cloud and on-premises endpoints. To connect to an on-premises database, your environment must have a self-managed Groundplex configured in the Classic Manager shared folder. Refer to Connect to on-premises endpoints for more information.

Supported load types

The PostgreSQL target endpoint supports the following load types:

  • Full load
  • Incremental (insert new, update changed)

Supported account types

Designer and Classic Manager provide multiple account types for most endpoints and not all types are compatible with AutoSync. When you create or edit a data pipeline, the existing credentials list only includes compatible Accounts.

For PostgreSQL, AutoSync supports:

  • Postgres Database Account

Connection configuration

PostgreSQL properties include the following:

  • Account Properties
    • Credential label: A unique, meaningful name such as Postgre-Sales. If a configuration with the same name exists, AutoSync displays an Asset conflict error message.
    • Hostname: The name of the machine hosting the database.
    • Port Number: The port number to connect to the database. Default value: 1521
    • Database name: The name of the database. For example, MyDB.
    • Username: A username for an account with the correct permissions for AutoSync to synchronize data.
    • Password: The password for the account. Multiple retries with an invalid password can cause your account to be locked.
    • Share: (Optional) Select a user group to share this configuration with. Org admins create user groups to share credentials. If you are a member of a user group, you can select it from the dropdown. You can also select the global shared folder to share the credentials with everyone in your Org.
  • Validate and save: After saving and validating, AutoSync adds the configuration to the list of saved credentials.
  • Select schema: AutoSync populates this list from the account. Choose the schema to use as the destination.
