ibmdb2_session resource

[edit on GitHub]

Use the ibmdb2_session Chef InSpec audit resource to test SQL commands run against an IBM Db2 database. Make sure you are using the IBM Db2 database instance user credentials to run the InSpec test.

Availability

Installation

This resource is distributed along with Chef InSpec itself. You can use it automatically.

Syntax

A ibmdb2_session resource block declares the db2_executable_file_path, db_instance and db_name to use for the session, and then the query to be run:

describe ibmdb2_session(db2_executable_file_path: "/opt/ibm/db2/V11.5/bin/db2", db_instance: "db2inst1", db_name: "sample").query("select rolename from syscat.roleauth") do
  its("output") { should match(/SYSTS_MGR/) }
end

Windows

describe ibmdb2_session(db_name: "sample").query("select rolename from syscat.roleauth") do
  its("output") { should match(/SYSTS_MGR/) }
end

where

  • ibmdb2_session declares a db2_executable_file_path, db_instance and db_name to connect.
  • db2_executable_file_path is the path of the db2 binary file. For Windows this is not required.
  • db_instance is the name of the database instance. For Windows this is not required.
  • db_name is the name of the database to query on.
  • query('QUERY') contains the query to be run.
  • its('output') { should eq(/expected-result/) } compares the results of the query against the expected result in the test.

Examples

The following examples show how to use this Chef InSpec audit resource.

Test for matching role name

describe ibmdb2_session(db2_executable_file_path: "/opt/ibm/db2/V11.5/bin/db2", db_instance: "db2inst1", db_name: "sample").query("select rolename from syscat.roleauth") do
  its("output") { should match(/SYSTS_MGR/) }
end

Test for matching database

describe ibmdb2_session(db2_executable_file_path: "/opt/ibm/db2/V11.5/bin/db2", db_instance: "db2inst1", db_name: "sample").query("list database directory") do
  its("output") { should match(/SAMPLE/) }
end
