Setup wizard and connection client for connecting MySQL/PostgreSQL databases to Chartio

Latest Version: Unknown


Chartio utilities for providing read-only user local database access.

Version 2.0.7

This project permits Chartio customers to provide database access by
opening an SSH reverse tunnel from a Chartio server to the customer

Errors, comments, questions may be sent to support at chart dot io.

Requires a read-only database role (or authorization to create one)
and a local SSH client. Requires JSON support (Python 2.6 or
Python 2.5 and simplejson).

Supported Databases
Oracle (command-line only)

To install, type::

$ python install

To uninstall, remove the files

Connecting an Oracle datasource to Chartio requires an existing
Chartio login and a read-only database role. In addition, all
information must be specified on the chartio_setup command-line. For
example, to connect the Oracle database named 'sales' using the
existing read-only role of 'sales_user'

% chartio_setup --oracle --database-name=sales --role=sales_user

The script will the prompt you for your Chartio login and password
and for the password of the 'sales_user' role.

If you encounter an error while running chartio_setup, the file
may contain details on what went wrong. In any event, please feel free
to contact support.

In addition, the log file
contains information about the chartio_connect process.
