This page describes how to configure the Oracle connector.

The Oracle connector is available as a Connector Service as of Flow 6.14.

For documentation about how to connect to Oracle using the Database Connector bundled with Flow Server, click here.


The Oracle Connector Service is used to integrate with Oracle with version number 10 and upwards. Oracle changed its version numbering system from version 12, to reflect the year of release instead. After versions 12c, 18c and 19c were released. The letter ā€˜cā€™ stands for Oracle Cloud.

Cleanup Command

Command timeout, in seconds, to use when executing a script or a query. If not set, the default value will be used (usually 30 seconds). Please note that this is the timeout between Flow Server and database. The communication between Flow Client and Flow server may timeout before the command timeout. If the client experiences timeout, but the database command does not, the database command will still be executed completely.

Connection Timeout

The timeout, in seconds, for establishing a connection to the Oracle Server.

Connection Pooling

Sets whether connection pooling should be used.

Override Connection String

If a connection string is specified here, it will be used instead of the one generated from the settings above.
