I am currently using the JDBC Producer stage to insert new records in my mysql databases. This works fine without issues. I now need to UPDATE some of the records with something like:

UPDATE db.table SET login_date=${(record:value("/myfield")}  WHERE prikey=${(record:value("/key")}

But there doesn't seem to be any input box where i can put in a query like the one above.

Also, I looked at the JDBC lookup stage but it seems that it is only for querying, not writing.

What stages do I need in order to DB updates like this?

thank you.

See the documentation on setting the CRUD operation in the record. You need to set the sdc.operation.type to 1 for INSERT or 3 for UPDATE, and ensure that the record field corresponding to the table's primary key is set; the JDBC Producer destination will automatically generate an update statement of the form you described.

Hi Pat, Thanks for this. I might have missed that section of the link where it says there is an implicit "WHERE" clause in the stage. The example given in that section was quite useful.

Hi Pat, a follow up question. For the non-CRUD enabled source, do we need to have a jdbc lookup to determine if the record already exists and then set the operation type? I am currently finding the existence of the record by performing jdbc lookup. Is there any way to set default operation as merge?
