Configuring an Oracle datasource.

Host Address

The network location of your Oracle database. This can be a domain name or an IP address. To connect to a local Oracle database, see Connect Local Database for directions.


The port number to connect to on the server. Appsmith connects to port 1521 by default if you do not specify one.

Service Name

The service name for your database instance.


The username that you want to use to authenticate with the Oracle server.


Password to use if the server demands password authentication.

SSL Mode

Determines whether your queries use an SSL connection to communicate with the database.

  • TLS: Connection is encrypted but no client verification is done.
  • Disabled: Disables SSL completely, and all connections are established without encryption.

Query Oracle

The following section provides examples of creating basic CRUD queries for Oracle.


For Oracle SQL syntax, see the official documentation Oracle SQL Language Reference.

Fetch data

SELECT * FROM users OFFSET {{ UsersTable.pageOffset }} ROWS FETCH NEXT {{ UsersTable.pageSize }} ROWS ONLY;

In the above example, UsersTable is the name of the Table widget used to display the data using server-side pagination to control how much data is queried at once.

Insert data

(name, gender, email)
{{ NameInput.text }},
{{ GenderDropdown.selectedOptionValue }},
{{ EmailInput.text }}

In the above example,  NameInputGenderDropdown, and EmailInput are the names of the widgets used to capture input from the user for name, gender and email fields, respectively.

Update data

UPDATE users
SET email = {{ EmailInput.text }}
WHERE id = {{ }};

In the above example, EmailInput is the name of the Input widget used to capture the email entered by the user. UsersTable is the Table widget where the user selects the row to update the user's email.

Delete data

DELETE FROM users WHERE id = {{ }};

In the above example, UsersTable is the name of the Table widget where the user selects the row for deletion.


Prepared statements are turned on by default in your queries to help prevent SQL injection attacks. For more details, see Prepared Statements.
