How to setup multiple SQL statements in a single DB Connection input

Explorer

Hi Everyone,

I am creating DB inputs in the Splunk DB Connector 3.0.2. I would like to run 2 sql statements or possibly more in some instances . When I use a semi column to separate in the Choose and Preview with the editor version sql I get

Invalid Query
java.sql.SQLSyntaxErrorException: ORA-00922: missing or invalid option

Here is an example:

alter session set currentschema=test;
select
column1
from
test
table

Any help appreciated.

In your example why not just use:
select
column1
from
test.test_table

Some databases might allow multiple queries via JDBC statements (where JDBC statements are what the DB input is really running) but by default most will not.

Thanks. That is what I have done so maybe this is a bad example. I guess the ultimate question is does it support multiple sql statements or do I have to combine into one? I have looked for the answer but did not find anything in the docs.

I do not believe the underlying JDBC statement will allow this but happy to be proven wrong here !
