Oracle Developer Cloud Service is a hosted team development and delivery platform with all kinds of tools to help your team be more efficient. In this post, I will cover how to use an SSH tunnel to connect to your database in a build job.
This is current as of October 2018.
Connecting to your database through an SSH tunnel is fairly simple and you won’t have to ask your network admin to open a port in your firewall and or load balancers.
If you’re connecting to an Oracle Cloud Database it should be pre-configured to allow database connections through an SSH tunnel. If not check with your server admin for assistance.
