Integrate database (Cloud)

Refer to the following instructions to integrate Unravel with a database other than the default PostgreSQL that is shipped with the installer.

You can integrate Unravel managed database as well as an external database for usage with Unravel. Unravel supports MySQL, MariaDB, and PostgreSQL (Postgres). Check the compatibility matrix for the versions of MySQL, MariaDB, and Postgres compatible with the corresponding Unravel platform version.

MySQL

You can integrate Unravel-managed MySQL as well as external MySQL with Unravel.

Unravel managed MySQL

Important

The following packages must be installed for fulfilling the OS level requirements for MySQL:

  • numactl-libs (for libnuma.so)

  • libaio (for libaio.so)

To integrate with Unravel managed MySQL, do the following:

  1. Create a mysql directory in /tmp. Provide permissions and make them accessible to the user who installs Unravel.

  2. Download the following tar files for MySQL/MariaDB server to /tmp/mysql directory:

    • mysql-5.7.27-linux-glibc2.12-x86_64.tar.gz

    • mysql-connector-java-5.1.48.tar.gz

  3. Run the setup command, as an Unravel user, to set up Unravel with MySQL database:

    <unravel_installation_directory>/unravel/versions<Unravel version>/setup --enable-<platform> --extra /tmp/mysql
    
    #For platform specify databricks or emr

This will configure and manage MySQL for usage with Unravel.

External MySQL

For configuring an external MySQLdatabase with Unravel, you must provide the JDBC connector. This can either be as a tar file or as a jar file.

To integrate Unravel with an external database, do the following:

  1. Create unravel schema and user on the target database where the unravel user should have full access to the schema.

    ## For example:
    CREATE DATABASE unravel_mysql_prod;
    CREATE USER 'unravel'@'localhost' IDENTIFIED BY 'password';
    GRANT ALL PRIVILEGES ON unravel_mysql_prod.* TO 'unravel'@'localhost';
  2. Create a directory for MySQL in /tmp. Provide permissions and make them accessible to the user who installs Unravel.

  3. Add the JDBC connector to /tmp/<MySQL-directory>/<jdbcconnector> directory. This can be either a tar file or a jar file.

  4. Run the setup command, as an Unravel user, to set up Unravel with MySQL database:

    <unravel_installation_directory>/unravel/versions/<Unravel version>/setup --enable-<platform> --extra /tmp/<MySQL-directory> --external-database mysql <HOST> <PORT> <SCHEMA> <USERNAME> <PASSWORD>
    #For platform specify databricks or emr
    ##The HOST, PORT, SCHEMA, USERNAME, PASSWORD are optional fields and are prompted if missing.
    

This will configure and manage external MySQL for usage with Unravel.

Note

In the case of MySQL 8.0, the client does not support the authentication protocol requested by the server, and there can be a failed connection to the database. Run the following to resolve this authentication issue:

ALTER USER 'unravel'@'unravel-host' IDENTIFIED WITH mysql_native_password BY 'password';flush privileges;

Where unravel is your user, unravel-host is the URL, and password is your password.

MariaDB

You can integrate Unravel with MariaDB by providing a Java JDBC connector.

Unravel managed MariaDB

Important

The following packages must be installed for fulfilling the OS level requirements for MariaDB:

  • numactl-libs (for libnuma.so)

  • libaio (for libaio.so)

To configure with Unravel managed MariaDB, do the following:

  1. Create a mariadb directory in /tmp. Provide permissions and make them accessible to the user who installs Unravel.

  2. Download the following tar files for mariadb server to /tmp/mariadb directory:

    • mariadb-10.4.13-linux-x86_64.tar.gz

    • mariadb-java-client-2.6.0.jar

  3. Run the setup command, as an Unravel user, to set up Unravel with MariaDB database:

    <unravel_installation_directory>/unravel/versions/<Unravel version>/setup --enable-<platform>  --extra /tmp/mariadb
    #For platform specify databricks or emr

This will configure and manage MariaDB for usage with Unravel.

External MariaDB

For configuring an external MariaDB database with Unravel, you must provide the JDBC connector. This can either be as a tar file or as a jar file.

To integrate Unravel with external MariaDB, do the following:

  1. Create unravel schema and user on the target database where the unravel user should have full access to the schema.

    ## For example:
    CREATE DATABASE unravel_mariadb_prod;
    CREATE USER 'unravel'@'localhost' IDENTIFIED BY 'password';
    GRANT ALL PRIVILEGES ON unravel_mariadb_prod.* TO 'unravel'@'localhost';
  2. Create a directory for MariaDB in /tmp. Provide permissions and make them accessible to the user who installs Unravel.

  3. Add the JDBC connector to /tmp/<MariaDB-directory>/<jdbcconnector> directory. This can be either a tar file or a jar file.

  4. Run the setup command, as Unravel user, to set up Unravel with an external MariaDB database:

    <unravel_installation_directory>/unravel/versions/<Unravel version>/setup --enable-<platform> --extra /tmp/<MariaDB-directory> --external-database mariadb <HOST> <PORT> <SCHEMA> <USERNAME> <PASSWORD>
    #For platform specify databricks or emr
    ##The HOST, PORT, SCHEMA, USERNAME, PASSWORD are optional fields and are prompted if missing.
    

This will set up Unravel with an external MariaDB.

PostgreSQL

You can configure external PostgreSQL, as well as, the Unravel managed PostgreSQL.

Unravel managed PostgreSQL

To configure the Unravel managed PostgreSQL database, run the setup command:

<unravel_installation_directory>/unravel/versions/<Unravel version>/setup --enable-<platform> 
#For platform specify databricks or emr

This will set up Unravel with PostgreSQL.

External PostgreSQL

To configure external PostgreSQL, do the following:

  1. Create unravel schema and user on the target database where the unravel user should have full access to the schema.

  2. Run the setup command from the installation directory:

    <unravel_installation_directory>/unravel/versions/<Unravel version>/setup --enable-<platform> --external-database postgresql <HOST> <PORT> <SCHEMA> <USERNAME> <PASSWORD>
    #For platform specify databricks or emr
    ##The HOST, PORT, SCHEMA, USERNAME, PASSWORD are optional fields and are prompted if missing.
    

This will set up Unravel with an external PostgreSQL.
