Creating the Rules Repository Database
This procedure creates the database that will be used as the Rules Repository.
Most database distributions include the JDBC connector that is needed; if this is not the case, you must download it from the vendor’s site. Genesys does not provide the JDBC connector. Genesys Rules System 8.1 can use either Java 6 or 7.
- Create a new database. The database will be populated by the Genesys Rules Authoring Tool.
- Create a database user. This user must have full access, including CREATE and INDEX.
- Test the connector according to the database vendor’s installation instructions to ensure that it can connect to the configured database.
- (For all databases) Copy the JDBC connector to the application server common library directory (for example, <Tomcat installation directory\Lib>). The installation script prompts for the correct information.
Changes in 8.1.3
Because the 8.1.3 repository is not compatible with earlier versions of the repository, you must create a new repository database as part of the GRAT 8.1.3 installation process. Please refer to Migration to 8.1.3.
