NodeStep plugin for executing groovy sql scripts on databases using a jdbc connection.

Rundeck JDBC execution plugin

This is a plugin for Rundeck >= 3.3.7-20201208 that provide the ability to add a nodestep with Groovy SQL scripts that will be executed with using jdbc connection on the Database.


./gradle clean build


Copy the rundeck-jdbc-executor-plugin-<version>.jar file to the libext/ directory inside your Rundeck installation.
(${RDECK_BASE}/libext is for WAR, TOMCAT, and /var/lib/rundeck/libext is for RPM, DEB)

Also appropriate jdbc driver, groovy-sql-<version>.jar and groovy-jsr223-<version>.jar (tested with groovy-sql-2.4.21.jar and groovy-jsr223-2.4.21.jar) must be added to thelib/directory. (${RDECK_BASE}/libis for WAR, TOMCAT, and/var/lib/rundeck/lib` is for RPM, DEB.)


To configure connection to the database add the following parameters to the node description in Rundeck Project resourses.xml:

One of:

  • db-type : Database type. ORACLE and MYSQL has been tested. See com.github.strdn.rundeck.plugin.jdbcexecutor.DBTypes for full list of supported databases
  • driver-class-name: The fully-qualified name of the driver class. If provided, db-type will be ignored.

jdbc-connect : jdbc connection string

jdbc-username : database account name for connections

jdbc-password : password or jdbc-password-storage-path for using password from Rundeck key storage

node-executor="jdbc-command" (optional) for executing Groovy SQL scripts using Rundeck 'Command' tab.
jdbc-command node executor also can be set in the project.properties file for using jdbc-command executor for all project nodes: service.NodeExecutor.default.provider=jdbc-command


<node name="remotehost" node-executor="jdbc-command" db-type="oracle" jdbc-connect="jdbc:oracle:thin:@remotehost:1521:ee122" jdbc-username="system" jdbc-password="system" description="" tags="" hostname="remotehost" osArch="amd64" osFamily="unix" osName="Linux" osVersion="" username="root"/>


  1. add a "Groovy SQL script executor" step to Rundeck job.
  2. specify "script source" in the node step:
  • inline (default)
  • file

with 'inline' option add script body to "Groovy SQL inline script" area

with 'file' option specify path to the script file in "Groovy SQL script path" area

  1. "Script args" is optional

simple script example (with Oracle Database):

System.out.println("args =" + args.toString())
def query = "select username, account_status from dba_users where username = " + "'" + args[0] +"'";
sql.eachRow(query) { tp -> println(tp)}
query = "select operation, to_char(start_time, 'DD-MM-YYYY HH24-MI-SS') st, STATUS from DBA_OPTSTAT_OPERATIONS order by start_time desc"; 
sql.eachRow(query) { tp -> println([tp.operation, tp.st, tp.status])}
