From Lumira/Pentaho to Couchbase Data via SIMBA JDBC


#1

Hi Folks,

I have downloaded and installed the Simba JDBC driver.

When I set up a new connection in my Lumira/Pentaho I can connect using the JDBC URL and Class - but I don’t see any of my buckets - I simply get:

CATALOG_VIEW
-> default

Underneath there are no buckets.

I checked the FAQ and I used the N1QL to create a primary index on the travel-sample bucket. Nevertheless I still can’t see my bucket.

Is there any detailed help? I have checked the installation guide but it’s not giving me much assistance.
Maybe someone can share a sample connection configuration along similar lines?

Best regards,

Mark

Hi Mark,
Can you pls check if the driver is configured to work in SQL mode (by setting query mode to 1). See page30 in http://cdn.simba.com/products/Couchbase/doc/Simba_Couchbase_JDBC_InstallGuide.pdf

Hi Prasad,

thanks for the quick reply. Actually there is currently a bug in the Simba driver that means SchemaMapOperation = 0 doesn’t work.

I used page 16 of the guide to set SchemaMapOperation = 1 (and the other parameters mentioned there) and now it works.

Best regards,

Mark.
