Connect to Adobe Analytics Data in IntelliJ

Integrate connectivity to Adobe Analytics data with wizards in IntelliJ.

The CData JDBC Driver for Adobe Analytics enables you to access Adobe Analytics as a JDBC data source, providing integration with rapid development tools in IDEs. This article shows how to use the data source configuration wizard to connect to Adobe Analytics data in IntelliJ.

Create a JBDC Data Source for Adobe Analytics

Follow the steps below to add the driver JAR and define connection properties required to connect to Adobe Analytics data.

  1. In the Data Sources window, right-click and then click Add Data Source -> DB Data Source.
  2. In the Data Source Properties dialog that appears, the following properties are required:

    • JDBC Driver Files: Click the button next to this menu to add the JDBC Driver file cdata.jdbc.adobeanalytics.jar, located in the installation directory.
    • JDBC Driver Class: In this menu, select cdata.jdbc.adobeanalytics.AdobeAnalyticsDriver from the list.
    • Database URL: Enter the connection URL in the JDBC URL property. The URL must start with jdbc:adobeanalytics: and includes connection properties separated with semicolons.

      Adobe Analytics uses the OAuth authentication standard. To authenticate using OAuth, you will need to create an app to obtain the OAuthClientId, OAuthClientSecret, and CallbackURL connection properties. See the "Getting Started" section of the help documentation for a guide.

      Retrieving GlobalCompanyId

      GlobalCompanyId is a required connection property. If you do not know your Global Company ID, you can find it in the request URL for the users/me endpoint on the Swagger UI. After logging into the Swagger UI Url, expand the users endpoint and then click the GET users/me button. Click the Try it out and Execute buttons. Note your Global Company ID shown in the Request URL immediately preceding the users/me endpoint.

      Retrieving Report Suite Id

      Report Suite ID (RSID) is also a required connection property. In the Adobe Analytics UI, navigate to Admin -> Report Suites and you will get a list of your report suites along with their identifiers next to the name.

      After setting the GlobalCompanyId, RSID and OAuth connection properties, you are ready to connect to Adobe Analytics.

      Built-in Connection String Designer

      For assistance in constructing the JDBC URL, use the connection string designer built into the Adobe Analytics JDBC Driver. Either double-click the JAR file or execute the jar file from the command-line.

      java -jar cdata.jdbc.adobeanalytics.jar

      Fill in the connection properties and copy the connection string to the clipboard.

      A typical JDBC URL is the following:

      jdbc:adobeanalytics:GlobalCompanyId=myGlobalCompanyId; RSID=myRSID; OAuthClientId=myOauthClientId; OauthClientSecret=myOAuthClientSecret; CallbackURL=myCallbackURL;

Edit and Save Adobe Analytics Data

To discover schema information, right-click the data source you just created and click Refresh Tables. To query a table, right-click it and then click Open Tables Editor.
