BasPH commented Sep 24, 2018

I want to create connection validation when saving a connection. I started with Postgres. Would be nice to know if you agree with the PR, before I implement validation for other connection types.



  • Here are some details about my PR, including screenshots of any UI changes:

This PR adds validation for the Postgres connection type. After saving a Connection, it validates by creating a new database connection and executing SELECT 1. In case this fails, an error is displayed:



  • My PR adds the following unit tests OR does not need testing for this extremely good reason:


  • My commits all reference Jira issues in their subject lines, and I have squashed multiple commits if they address the same issue. In addition, my commits follow the guidelines from "How to write a good git commit message":
    1. Subject is separated from body by a blank line
    2. Subject is limited to 50 characters (not including Jira issue reference)
    3. Subject does not end with a period
    4. Subject uses the imperative mood ("add", not "adding")
    5. Body wraps at 72 characters
    6. Body explains "what" and "why", not "how"


  • In case of new functionality, my PR adds documentation that describes how to use it.
    • When adding new operators/hooks/sensors, the autoclass documentation generation needs to be added.

Awesome suggestion @BasPH

I really like this and makes setting up connections through the UI much easier. 2 points:

  • Can we also add this to the model hook? So we can generalize it also to other hooks than the Postgres one.
  • Can you add it to the rbac ui as well? The old UI will be removed soon (I hope).

Can you change this to with self.get_conn()? So it closes automagically.

Yup, duplicate Jira issues. One should be closed as a duplicate of the other.

@ashb not sure. This PR offers solution only for PostgreSQL.

Oh yes, I was basing my comment on the title of the this Jira - I've changed that to be more specific and linked the two issues.
