Short Description
SQL Agent HTTP interface
Full Description

SQL Agent

SQL Agent is an HTTP service for executing ad-hoc queries on remote databases. The motivation for this service is to be part of a data monitoring process or system in which the query results will be evaluated against previous snapshots of the results.

The supported databases are:

  • PostgreSQL
  • MySQL, MariaDB
  • Oracle
  • Microsoft SQL Server
  • SQLite

In addition to the service, this repo also defines a sqlagent package for using in other Go programs.

Install

At the moment, it is recommended to run the service using Docker because there are no pre-built binaries yet.

docker run -d -p 5000:5000 dbhi/sql-agent

Usage

To execute a query, simply send a POST request with a payload containing the driver name of the database, connection information to with, and the SQL statement with optional parameters. The service will connect to the database, execute the query and return the results as a JSON-encoded array of maps (see details below).

Request

POST

Headers:

  • 'Accept': application/json or application/x-ldjson
{
    "driver": "postgres",
    "connection": {
        "host": "localhost",        
        "user": "postgres"
    },
    "sql": "SELECT name FROM users WHERE zipcode = :zipcode",
    "params": {
        "zipcode": 18019
    }
}

Response

[
    {
        "name": "George"
    },
    ...
]

Connection Options

The core option names are standardized for ease of use.

  • host - The host of the database.
  • port - The port of the database.
  • user - The user to connect with.
  • password - The password to authenticate with.
  • database - The name of the database to connect to. For SQLite, this will be a filesystem path. For Oracle, this would be the SID.

Other options that are supplied are passed query options if they are known, otherwise they are they ignored.

Details

  • Only SELECT statements are supported.
  • Statements using parameters must use the :param syntax and must have a corresponding entry in the params map.

Constraints

  • Columns must be uniquely named, otherwise the conversion into a map will include only one of the values.

Library

The SQL Agent library does not include any drivers by default. To add them include them like so:

package main

import (
    _ "github.com/alexbrainman/odbc"
    _ "github.com/denisenkom/go-mssqldb"
    _ "github.com/go-sql-driver/mysql"
    _ "github.com/lib/pq"
    _ "github.com/mattn/go-oci8"
    _ "github.com/mattn/go-sqlite3"
)

func main() {
    //...
}

Help

Install Oracle client libraries

General

In order to install the go-oci8 driver, you must install Oracle's client libraries.

Download the instantclient-basic and instantclient-sdk package from Oracle's website and uncompress to the same directory. Make sure that you selected the platform and architecture.

The installations instructions are listed at the bottom of the page with the download links.

Install pkg-config.

Create oci8.pc file in your $PKG_CONFIG_PATH (such as /usr/local/lib/pkgconfig) and add the below contents:

prefix=/usr/local/lib/instantclient_11_2
libdir=${prefix}
includedir=${prefix}/sdk/include/

Name: OCI
Description: Oracle database engine
Version: 11.2
Libs: -L${libdir} -lclntsh
Libs.private:
Cflags: -I${includedir}

Change the prefix to path to location of the Oracle libraries.

OS X specific Help

Assuming the instantclient_11_2 folder is located in /usr/loca/lib, link the following files:

ln /usr/local/lib/instantclient_11_2/libclntsh.dylib /usr/local/lib/libclntsh.dylib
ln /usr/local/lib/instantclient_11_2/libocci.dylib.* /usr/local/lib/libocci.dylib.*
ln /usr/local/lib/instantclient_11_2/libociei.dylib /usr/local/lib/libociei.dylib
ln /usr/local/lib/instantclient_11_2/libnnz11.dylib /usr/local/lib/libnnz11.dylib

Install pkg-config via Homebrew, brew install pkg-config.
