Hi,

You can safely use the sql routine. You need to define a new datasource(even for the default JIRA database) and that's it. We also have the free Database Custom Field (DBCF) plugin. You can use it too if you just want to retrieve some data from database.

You can find examples here:

Hi Silviu,

I was able to use the sql() routine with my internal database(Oracle) without defining the datasource, I just use my oracle SID as the JNDIstring and it works well, is this OK?

Also should I not worry about closing the session/connection everytime i use sql() routine?

Thanks,

eric

Yes, it is ok.

Do not bother, we close it correctly on finally so you do not need to care about it. So you should be fine all the time.

Hi Eric,

Yes, that's ok, the first parameter is a JNDI name, as long as you have it configured, you can use it. You don't need to worry about session/connection. we handle that for you.

Best,

Silviu
