Using Microsoft SQL Server modules

You can execute your custom logic directly on your database server through stored procedures. Adobe Workfront Fusion loads interface of input/output parameters and recordset dynamically so each parameter or value can be mapped individually. Before you start configuring your scenario, make sure the account you’re using to connect to your database has read access to INFORMATION_SCHEMA.ROUTINES and INFORMATION_SCHEMA.PARAMETERS views.

When Fusion establishes the connection to the SQL server destination, the Fusion user identifies the Host (the domain name or IP address where the server is hosted) and the port. Fusion can connect to any available host and port.

For information about specific IP addresses used by Workfront Fusion, see IP Addresses for accessing Adobe Workfront Fusion

To learn more about creating a stored procedure, see the Microsoft SQL Server documentation.


Workfront Fusion doesn’t support multiple recordsets. Only the first one is processed.

Troubleshooting error ER_LOCK_WAIT_TIMEOUT: Lock wait timeout exceeded; try restarting transaction

This error occurs when you modify the same data using multiple modules. It is caused by SQL transactions.

When any SQL module is executed, it starts a transaction. The transaction is finished after the scenario is fully executed.

If another module tries to access the same data, it has to wait until the previous transaction is finished. Since the first transaction will be finished after the scenario is finished, the second transaction can never begin.


Turn on Auto-commit. Auto-commit finishes (commits) every transaction immediately after the module execution is done.

  1. Click the Scenario settings icon at the bottom of the screen.
  2. Click the Auto commit checkbox.
  3. Click OK to save the scenario settings.
