Hello, How can I create DB rule and use some external program for updating data? There is one kind of Action (update data by external system), but I don't know, how to use it. There is only field "URL". Can I use some local program (perl script)? How? How can I work with input and output of script? Thank you very much for any help...
Re: sd 4.5 DB rule - Update data by external program
this is an http request. Your external server must be able to receive http requests and will answer to the OVSD server. The values in the answer will be filled in in the fields you define in your rule.
Other way to update data from external system is that you use the command exec action and call a script with a dataexchange task that you predefined (with possible delta processing)
A program you designed that has some API's embedded in, agian you need to call this with the command exec action.
If data you need to import is only one record, you can use the sd_event command, that the external program needs to start and feed.
