This module is designed to guide a user through the process of authenticating with a PostgreSQL database. The user is visually prompted for typical PostgreSQL connection parameters. User entered information is verified and once authenticated, a DBI::dbConnect() object is returned.

This module consists of the following components:

Module UI function

  • postgresql_setup_ui: A uiOutput that allows users to connect to provide connection parameters required to connect to a PostgreSQL database.

Module Server function

  • postgresql_setup_server: The logic that controls the graphical user interface, validates user inputs, and returns a DBI::dbconnect() object used to connect to the desired PostgreSQL database.
