    Connect to PostgreSQL database

    Active Member



      I am trying to connect to a PostgreSQL database in Informatica PowerCenter, but there seems to be no option available. I read that I can use ODBC instead but there is only an option "ODBC for Oracle", "ODBC for SQL Server" and some Cassandra and MongoDB. Which one do I use?


      These are the drivers I have available:


      Thank you,

          The DataDirect ODBC drivers for PostgreSQL are not displayed in the ODBC driver manager on Windows even though the drivers are installed and available under ODBC folder (<InstallationDir>\ODBCx.x\lib)




          To get the drivers in the ODBC driver manager, do the following:



          Conduct a full registry backup before any operation on Windows Registry.

          1. Edit the registry.
          2. Add a New Registry Key as DataDirect 7.1 Postgre Wire Protocol under [], as shown in the following image:
          3. And update the driver to have <Installation install dir>\clients\tools\ODBC7.1\dwpsql27.dll
