InterSystems IRIS for SQLAlchemy

Project description


An InterSystems IRIS dialect for SQLAlchemy.


This dialect requires SQLAlchemy, InterSystems DB-API driver. They are specified as requirements so pip will install them if they are not already in place. To install, just:

pip install sqlalchemy-iris


In your Python app, you can connect to the database via:

from sqlalchemy import create_engine
engine = create_engine("iris://_SYSTEM:SYS@localhost:1972/USER")

InterSystems IRIS

You can run your instance of InterSystems IRIS Community Edition with Docker

docker run -d --name iris \
 -p 1972:1972 \
 -p 52773:52773 \

Port 1972 is used for binary communication (this driver, xDBC and so on), and 52773 is for web (Management Portal, IRIS based web-applications and API's).

The System Management Portal is available by URL: http://localhost:52773/csp/sys/UtilHome.csp

The default password - SYS, has to be changed after the first login to the management portal. Or start the container with a command that resets the change password flag

docker run -d --name iris \
 -p 1972:1972 \
 -p 52773:52773 \
 intersystemsdc/iris-community:preview \
 -a "iris session iris -U%SYS '##class(Security.Users).UnExpireUserPasswords(\"*\")'"
