Create an Oracle Cloud data source using Wallet and Thin driver

Official documentation and software

Oracle Wallet is a set of files that stores all the user credentials such as certificates, certificate requests, and private keys. You can create a wallet by using the Oracle tooling or ask your Oracle server administrator to generate the wallet. For more information about Wallets, refer to Creating and Managing Oracle Wallet and Download Client Credentials (Wallets) at


  • Running Oracle Cloud instance with access permissions for your user.

  • Oracle Wallet.

Preparing the wallet files

Prepare a ZIP archive with wallet files. For more information about downloading a Wallet, refer to Download Client Credentials (Wallets) at

  1. Create a directory (for example, ~/Oracle/).

  2. Extract the ZIP archive with wallet files to the created directory.

Creating the Oracle data source

  1. To connect to the database, create a data source that will store your connection details. You can do this using one of the following ways:

    • In the main menu, go to File | New | Data Source and select Oracle.

    • In the Database Explorer ( View | Tool Windows | Database Explorer) , click the New icon (the New icon) in the toolbar. Navigate to Data Source and select Oracle.

    Create a new data source
  2. From the Connection type list, select TNS.

  3. From the Driver list, select Thin.

  4. In the TNSADMIN field, click the Open button (the Open button) and navigate to the directory with extracted wallet files (in our case, ~/Oracle/Wallet_Frankfurt21/).

  5. Specify the credentials for your connection.

    1. In the TNS name field, use the automatic completion (Ctrl+Space) to select which service name to use (the values of an alias are given in the tnsnames.ora file provided with wallet).

    2. In the User and Password fields, type your user credentials.

      To use no password, leave the Password field empty.

      To delete a once entered password, right-click the Password field and select Set Empty.

      the Set Empty context menu action

    Alternatively, enter the JDBC URL into the URL field.

  6. Ensure that the connection to the database can be established using the provided details. To do that, click the Test Connection link at the bottom of the connection details area.

  8. Click OK to create the data source.

  9. Find your new data source in Database Explorer (⌘ 1) .

    • For more information about Database Explorer, see the corresponding reference topic.

    • For more information about working with database objects in DataGrip, refer to Database objects.

    • To write and run queries, open the default query console by clicking the data source and pressing F4.

    • To view data of a database object, open Data editor and viewer by double-clicking the object.
