Automate Your SQL Queries in Three Easy Steps


STEP #1 – Connect Your Database

Create a Generic Database Connection with the details about your database. This connection will be used as the target of your SQL query.


STEP #2 – Create A New Task

Create a new Task and select the SQL Runner from the Appl list:

  • Use the Alias field to name your Task
  • Select Run SQL Script With Date Parameters in the Action Type field
  • Use the Target Database Connection field to select the Database Connection that you created
  • Add the SQL query that you want to automate to the SQL Script field
    (Usually, this will be an Insert or Update statement to maintain a dataset that is built from data collected over time)
  • Provide User Defined Parameters, if you are using templates in your query
  • Use the Next Run Start Point field to specify the date in your data, to begin with
  • Set amount of data that you want to process in the Process Increment field
  • Click the Create button

You have successfully completed the creation of your Task.


STEP #3 – Create A New Sequence

Create a new Sequence to run your Task automatically:

  • Name your Sequence
  • Enable your Sequence
  • Select Task schedule:
    • Fixed schedule: defined with a CRON expression
    • Trigger Schedule: Set your task to run at the completion of another Task
  • Select the Task that you created
  • Click the Save button
  • Test your Task:
    • You can test your Task before it runs on the schedule by running the Sequence manually.

And that’s it, you have successfully automated your SQL query for free.
