DataWorks provides DRDS Reader and DRDS Writer for you to read data from and write data to DRDS data sources. You can use the codeless user interface (UI) or code editor to configure synchronization nodes for DRDS data sources.

Background information

Workspaces in standard mode support the data source isolation feature. You can add data sources for the development and production environments separately and isolate the data sources to protect your data security. For more information, see Isolate connections between the development and production environments.

Procedure

  1. Go to the Data Source page.
    1. Log on to the DataWorks console.
    2. In the left-side navigation pane, click Workspaces.
    3. In the top navigation bar, select the region where your workspace resides. Find your workspace and click Data Integration in the Actions column.
    4. On the page that appears, click Connection in the left-side navigation pane. The Data Source page appears.
  2. On the Data Source page, click New data source in the upper-right corner.
  3. In the Add data source dialog box, click DRDS in the Relational Database section.
  4. In the Add DRDS data source dialog box, configure the parameters.
    You can use one of the following modes to add a DRDS data source: Alibaba Cloud Database (DRDS) and Connection string mode.
    • The following table describes the parameters you must configure if you add a DRDS data source by using the Alibaba Cloud database (DRDS) mode. Alibaba Cloud Database (DRDS)
      Parameter Description
      Data source type The type of the data source. Set this parameter to Alibaba Cloud Database (DRDS).
      Data Source Name The name of the data source. The name can contain letters, digits, and underscores (_) and must start with a letter.
      Data source description The description of the data source. The description can be a maximum of 80 characters in length.
      Environment The environment in which the data source is used. Valid values: Development and Production.
      Note This parameter is displayed only when the workspace is in standard mode.
      Instance ID The ID of the DRDS instance. You can log on to the DRDS console to view the ID.
      Master account ID The ID of the Alibaba Cloud account that is used to purchase the DRDS instance. To obtain the ID, perform the following steps: Log on to the DRDS console, move the pointer over the profile picture in the upper-right corner, and then select Security Settings. On the Security Settings page, you can view the value of the Account ID parameter, which is the ID of your Alibaba Cloud account.
      Database name The name of the database.
      User name The username that you use to connect to the database.
      Password The password that you use to connect to the database.
    • The following table describes the parameters you must configure if you add a DRDS data source by using the connection string mode. Connection string mode
      Parameter Description
      Data source type The type of the data source. Set this parameter to Connection string mode.
      Data Source Name The name of the data source. The name can contain letters, digits, and underscores (_) and must start with a letter.
      Data source description The description of the data source. The description can be a maximum of 80 characters in length.
      Environment The environment in which the data source is used. Valid values: Development and Production.
      Note This parameter is displayed only when the workspace is in standard mode.
      JDBC URL The Java Database Connectivity (JDBC) URL of the database, in the format of jdbc:mysql://ServerIP:Port/Database.
