GlueSync SQL to NoSQL for DB2 LUW


In order to have GlueSync working on your DB2 LUW instance you will need to have:

  • valid user credentials with permissions of reading, writing to the target tables and respective database

Basic configuration example

This module can be customized by using a configuration file, in JSON format. The file name to use must be specified as parameter when launching the app, with the -f or --file tokens. The file should be composed by union of common configuration file (see here Installation Steps) and source/destination specific configuration:

  "sourcePort": "50000",
  "sourceChangeRetention": 5

You can also specify few other options that applies to this configuration, like:

  • sourceChangeRetention (optional): defaults to 5. Number of retention days preserved into the GlueSync GDC action_logs table inside your DB2 database;

Got a clustered index in a table?

If you’ve got a clustered index configuration on one of your DB2 tables you can specificy which keys GlueSync should use in order to compose your unique row identifier instead of looking for a single Primary Key.

Here following the configuration snippet you can use and customize in order to sync your table with a clustered index config:

  "db2": {
    "tableKeys": {
      "articles": ["id1", "id2"],
      "customers": ["customer_name", "customer_surname", "customer_age", "customer_id"]
  • tableKeys: is the object that represents the key-value pair list of tables and its columns that are composing your clustered index;

Looking for data modelling features or other options?
