myDBR offers a command-line tool mydbr_sync which will extract myDBR reports and other objects to the local filesystem. This will allow you to change reports in the server and extract the changes to the local filesystem from where you can easily to put the files into your version control system. If you do not have direct access to the remote database you can use an SSH tunnel.
mydbr_sync is a java-program that requires minimum Java 1.6 installed.
mydbr_sync separates different objects from mydbr-database and places them on separate directories. mydbr_sync will by default produce the following file structure into the directory where it is run:
. ├── mydbr_sync.properties └── mydbr └── default ├── functions ├── procedures ├── reports └── views
Go to the directory where you wish to extract mydbr-objects to. When you run mydbr_sync the first time it will ask you the configuration parameters and create the configuration file mydbr_sync.properties. Once the configuration file exists you just run the mydbr_sync command.
java -jar mydbr_sync.jar [filename]
The user names and password must be the ones used in myDBR
user=mydbr pass=mydbr_pass host=localhost port=3306 database=mydbr_demo db_type=mysql
for Microsoft SQL Server:
user=mydbr pass=mydbr_pass host=localhost port=1433 database=mydbr_demo db_type=mssql
for Sybase ASA:
user=mydbr pass=mydbr_pass host=172.16.125.139 port=5000 database=mydbr db_type=sybase
If you have a larger reporting structure and wish to separate different sub-projects into separate directories, you can define stored routine prefixes and define sub-folders for file storage make the definition in your database configuration file with the following syntax
Each prefix is defined by prefix / subdir pairs:
Additional definitions into mydbr_sync.properties:
prefix.1=sp_DBR_sales subdir.1=sales prefix.2=sp_DBR_development subdir.2=development prefix.3=fn_sales subdir.3=sales
