Establishing a Connection
Connecting with the Greenplum Connection Manager
Adding a new Greenplum connection to the SSIS package is straightforward. Right-click within the Connection Manager window and select New Connection from the menu. Then, choose the Greenplum Connection Manager from the Add SSIS Connection Manager window.
Alternatively, you can create a new connection directly using the Greenplum Source or the Greenplum Destination. You can set the connection properties in the Greenplum Connection Manager window.
Connecting to Greenplum
To connect to Greenplum, set the Server, Port (the default port is 5432), and Database connection properties and set the User and Password you wish to use to authenticate to the server. If the Database property is not specified, the component connects to the user's default database (it will be the same name as the user).
The CData SSIS Components for Greenplum supports the md5, password, Kerberos and SASL (particulary, SCRAM-SHA-256) authentication methods.
The specific authentication method is setup in the pg_hba.conf file on the Greenplum Server. You may find instructions about authentication setup on the Greenplum Server here. The md5, password and SASL authentication methods do not require additional setup by the CData SSIS Components for Greenplum.
Authenticating with Kerberos
The authentication with Kerberos is initiated by Greenplum Server when the CData SSIS Components for Greenplum is trying to connect to it. You should setup Kerberos on the Greenplum Server to activate this authentication method. Once you have Kerberos authentication setup on the Greenplum Server, see Using Kerberos for details on how to authenticate with Kerberos by the component.
