Description

Checks if the database is available. Optionally, it can check also the availability of the results for the SQL passed in as the second parameter.

Parameters

Return Type

Boolean (true/false)

Examples

Example 1

Let's suppose in our examples `TextField` is a custom field text already configured for the current Jira server instance and `TestDB` represents the database resource name configured in the server context. For more details see SQL data sources.

TextField=databaseAvailable("TestDB"); //will set 'TextField' value to 'true'

Example 2

TextField=databaseAvailable("TestDB", "select pname from project"); //will set 'TextField' value to 'true' if the SQL passed in can be executed

Example 3

TextField=databaseAvailable("TestDB", "select pname from inexistentTableName");//will set 'TextField' value to 'false', because the SQL passed in cannot be executed

Example 4

TextField=databaseAvailable("InexistentTestDB", "select pname from project");//will set 'TextField' value to 'false', because the database resource does not exist

To configure the data source check the SQL data sources configuration chapter.
