DB2 CONNECTOR: Filter and Select Query Examples?


I have a Flow that writes data to DB2 tables. After a write is successful, I want to send out a report that shows ONLY the new records written to the database. 


I have a variable called varObjectIDs that is set earlier in the Flow. Its a string variable that looks like: "1,2,3" etc. and holds the ID's of the new tables.


Question is: 

  • How do I use varObjectIDs to select only the new records in a DB2 Get Rows action? 

I think the answer lies with the "Filter Query" or "Select Query" paramenters but I don't understand them enough to use them. 



I tried putting OBJECTID eq varObjectIDs in the Filter Query, but Flow didn't accept that.

Any other ideas?

Thank you!

Hi @ericonline 


I am no DB2 expert but if your variable contains the ids in string format

OBJECTID eq varObjectIDs will not work


you might have to loop through each varObjectIDs and test the query and check if record exists


one option would be to hardcode the id and check first if it works

example : OBJECTID eq '1' 

or OBJECTID eq 1


based on response you can set your query accordingly

Hi @ericonline,


If you use Filter array, you need to put the current item into the left or right blank, and the other side you need to put the value you want find.Annotation 2019-08-13 112236.png
