MariaDB
6.2.1.3. MariaDB as Airlock IAM database

This page describes how to use an MariaDB database with the Airlock IAM database schema.

The chosen data layer has to be well managed and monitored. IAM is not responsible for operation and backup/recovery. For productive usage, the data layer should be clustered.

Compatibility

MariaDB version 10.2 or higher is required for full compatibility with the IAM database schema. See Techzone for information on using older MariaDB versions.

Database settings

In order to use Airlock IAM with MariaDB a JDBC connector/driver library is required.

The following MariaDB database settings may be useful:

Purpose
Command Line
my.cnf
table names are used case insensitive
Note: use this option to avoid issues with older Demo Configurations using table names in upper case
--lower_case_table_names=1
[mysqld]
lower_case_table_names=1

Schema creation and upgrade

SQLs scripts for MariaDB databases are available here:
