  1. To create tables in the registry and user manager database (WSO2CARBON_DB ), use the below script:

    Code Block
  2. Restart the server.


    You can create database tables automatically when starting the product for the first time by using the -Dsetup parameter as follows:

    • For Windows: <PRODUCT_HOME>/bin/wso2server.bat -Dsetup

    • For Linux: <PRODUCT_HOME>/bin/wso2server.sh -Dsetup

Changing the identity/storage/product-specific databases

The topics above show how to change the WSO2_CARBON_DB, which is used to store registry and user manager information. If you changed the product-specific database that come by default or set up a separate database for identity or storage related data, the instructions are the same. In summary:

  1. Add a new datasource configuration to the following files for each of the separate databases that you need to create.

    For the identity databaseAdd it to the <PRODUCT_HOME>/repository/conf/datasources/<check the correct path and add file name (something like master-datasources.xml)>
    For the storage databaseAdd it to the <PRODUCT_HOME>/repository/conf/datasources/<check the correct path and add file name (something like master-datasources.xml)
    For the product-specific databaseAdd it to the <PRODUCT_HOME>/repository/conf/><check the correct path and add file name (something like api-manager.xml)
  2. Create the database tables using the following scripts:

    For the identity databaseUse <PRODUCT_HOME>/dbscripts/identity/<check the correct path and add file name (something like mysql.sql)>
    For the storage databaseUse <PRODUCT_HOME>/dbscripts/storage/<check the correct path and add file name (something like /mysql/resoucre.sql)>
    For the product-specific databaseUse  <PRODUCT_HOME>/dbscripts/<check the correct path and add file name (something like /apimgt/mysql.sql)> 
  3. Update the following configurations, with the defined datasource name of the corresponding database configuration you added to the <PRODUCT_HOME>/repository/conf/datasources/master-datasources.xml file.

    • If you are setting up a separate database to store identity related data, update the following configurations in the <PRODUCT_HOME>/repository/conf/identity.xml file.

      Code Block
      		<!-- Include a data source name (jndiConfigName) from the set of datasources defined in master-datasources.xml -->

      Note to writers: For step 3, add content on the XML files which include references on any of the additional databases and require edits that are relevant to your product similar to the given example.
