Posted on 2013-06-04

good day.

can someone please help me with simple queries running against a Lenel, Onguard database?

I would like to perform the following (data reading only):

1.  retrieve a list of users and their badge number (last name, first name, badge #)
2.  find out if the badge # is currently active

your help would be greatly appreciated.

i did find this article, however, it isn't exactly what i need (especially finding out if the badge is active):

Before providing any query support what database are you using to support your product - SQL or ORACLE? As far as I'm aware OnGuard 2010 supports SQL 2008, and Oracle 11.

Actualy on bothe DBs you would need to run a query like below and that would give you bothe answers in one shot:

select e.lastname, e.firstname, as badge_num,
from emp e inner join badge b  on b.empid =

You could also subscribe and post questions about speciffic queries at the forum you mentioned above.

Then the query above must work in SQL - just please double check to make sure I got the active field right from badge table (sorry - I currently do not have the OnGuard environment up and running.)

if you need the two record sets exactly like in your posting please run:

select e.lastname, e.firstname, as badge_num
from emp e inner join badge b  on b.empid =

select as badge_num, from badge b where = 1

--to get a list of emp names with active badges:

select e.lastname, e.firstname, as badge_num,
from emp e inner join badge b  on b.empid = and = 1

--to get a list with inactive badges:

select e.lastname, e.firstname, as badge_num,
from emp e inner join badge b  on b.empid = and = 0

--to get a full list run:

select e.lastname, e.firstname, as badge_num,
      case when = 0 then 'Inactive'
            when = 1 then 'Active'
            else 'unknown' end as badge_status
from emp e inner join badge b  on b.empid =

Just please double check my logic against badge table in the SQL database to make sure I remembered active column correctly

thanks for the prompt response - I don't have access to the badge table either; however, i should be able to return the table schema, if needed.

have a good one.

i think the field name for the badge status is "Status."  Active = 1 like you said.

i found a dataConduIT document on Onguard.  if anyone needs something like this in the future, this document seems to have the field names:

thanks again.

"Status" indeed - sorry I missed (forgot) that...

Find all active badges that are APB exempt:
select * from Lnl_Badge where Status=1 and APBExempt = TRUE

i was able to view a Lenel database (onguard 2013).  the data conduit document is fine; however, the tables name are a bit different.

the table for badges:

  PIN (varbinary(50)) <- i'm assuming they encrypt the PIN somehow

table for employees:


thought i would post in case anyone else needs the info.
