IBM Db2 Data Management Console

Using cURL scripts to Manage the Db2 Console

By Peter KOHLMANN posted Fri February 14, 2020 03:16 PM

Today I added a new lesson to the Db2 Console Hands-On Lab.

The hands-on lab is free to access through a web browser. You get to use of a 16GB, 8 CPU virtual machine with 50GB of disk space. The Db2 Console and Db2 are pre-installed and ready for you to start learning. All of the examples in the lab are also available through GITHUB and available for your own projects.

This new lesson contains examples of how to setup and manage the Db2 Data Management Console using cURL in simple BASH scripts. If you don't want to setup or use Jupyter or Python, cURL is a command-line tool for getting or sending data, including RESTful API calls, using URL syntax. The  new lesson takes about 10-15 minutes. Even if you have completed the hands-on lab already, come back for this new lesson.

Please let me know how you like the new lesson, if you run into an issues, and of course what would you like me to add next.
