credentials = None
with open('/var/run/secrets/user_credentials/db2_credentials') as f:
credentials = json.load(f)
# Check and make sure the credentials were pulled correctly
if credentials:
username = credentials.get('username')
password = credentials.get('password')
hostname = credentials.get('hostname')
# Setup the connection to the database
connection = ibm_db.connect(
# Statement you want to execute

result = ibm_db.fetch_both(query)
