Version 24.1.8910


You can use the Informix connector from the CData Sync application to capture data from Informix and move it to any supported destination. To do so, you need to add the connector, authenticate to the connector, and complete your connection.

Establish a Connection

To allow Sync to use data from Informix, you first must establish a connection to Informix. Follow these steps to connect Informix to your Sync account:

  1. Open the Connections page of the Sync dashboard.

  2. Click Add Connection to open the Select Connectors page.

  3. Click the Sources tab and locate the Informix row.

  4. Click the Configure Connection icon at the end of that row. If you do not see the Configure Connection icon, you need to add the connector according to the instructions in Connections.

  5. Enter connection settings on the Settings tab:

    • Connection Name - Enter a connection name of your choice.

    • Server - Enter the name of the IBM Informix server.

    • Port - Enter the port number that connects to the server that hosts your Informix database. The default port value is 50000.

    • Database - Enter the name of your Informix database.

    • Auth Scheme - Select the Auth scheme that you want to use for authentication. The default scheme is USRIDPWD.

    • User - Enter the username that you use to authenticate to Informix.

    • Password - Enter the password that you use to authenticate to Informix.

    • Use SSL - Select whether you want to enable Secure Sockets Layer (SSL). The default value is False.

  6. Click Create & Test to create the connection.

  7. Define advanced connection settings on the Advanced tab. (In most cases, though, you should not need these settings.)
