Tivoli Directory Integrator: Connect to MySQL Database

by Michael Urspringer - 22.01.2013

As I did not found it somewhere documented, here are the instructions to connect Tivoli Directory Integrator (TDI) to a MYSQL database:

  • Get the MySQL JDBC driver
  • Copy the file “mysql-connector-java-5.1.22-bin.jar” (the version number may differ!)  from the archive to “<TDI install directory\ jars\3rdparty\others”
  • Restart TDI if it is already running
  • In a TDI assembly line add a new component of type “Database Connectors (JDBC)”
  • As “Database Type” select “JDBC”
  • As “JDBC URL” use: “jdbc:mysql://<dbhostname>:<port>/<databasename>” (e.g. “jdbc:mysql://localhost:3306/test”)
  • As “JDBC Driver” use “com.mysql.jdbc.Driver”

Now you should be able to successfully connect to your MySQL database.
