Storing Reports in PostgreSQL Database

By default Sahi stores its reports in a H2 database which is bundled in Sahi. Sahi reports can now also be logged in PostgreSQL database. To store in a PostgreSQL database, do the following:

Create a Database

Create a database in PostgreSQL using any PostgreSQL client. Let us assume that the name of the database is sahireports

Creating Tables

The tables will be created automatically, once Sahi is restarted after performing the following steps. There is no need to run the db script manually.

Add PostgreSQL Driver Jars to Sahi Classpath

Download the PostgreSQL Connector, extract and copy postgresql-xxxxxx.jar to sahi/userdata/extlib folder (create if needed).

Point Sahi to use the PostgreSQL Database

Add the following to in sahi/userdata/config folder
# Specifies database type.
# The inbuilt options are "mysql", "mssql", "postgresql", "oracle" and "h2"
# Change jdbc parameters accordingly

#JDBC parameters for postgresql database

Change the user_name, password and database name as required.

Restart and Run

Restart Sahi. This will create the required tables in the database.

Run a script and check!
