Connect to Basecamp Data in CloverETL

Transfer Basecamp data using the visual workflow in the CloverETL data integration tool.

The CData JDBC Driver for Basecamp enables you to use the data transformation components in CloverETL to execute create, read, update, and delete (CRUD) commands to Basecamp data. In this article, you will use the JDBC Driver for Basecamp to set up a simple transfer into a flat file.

Connect to Basecamp as a JDBC Data Source

  1. Create the connection to Basecamp data. In a new CloverETL graph, right-click the Connections node in the Outline pane and click Connections -> Create Connection. The Database Connection wizard is displayed.
  2. Click the plus icon to load a driver from a JAR. Browse to the lib subfolder of the installation directory and select the cdata.jdbc.basecamp.jar file.
  3. Enter the JDBC URL. A typical JDBC URL is below: jdbc:basecamp:User=test@northwind.db;Password=test123;

    Basecamp uses basic or OAuth 2.0 authentication. To use basic authentication you will need the user and password that you use for logging in to Basecamp. To authenticate to Basecamp via OAuth 2.0, you will need to obtain the OAuthClientId, OAuthClientSecret, and CallbackURL connection properties by registering an app with Basecamp.

    See the Getting Started section in the help documentation for a connection guide.

    Additionally, you will need to specify the AccountId connection property. This can be copied from the URL after you log in.

Query Basecamp Data with the DBInputTable Component

  1. Drag a DBInputTable from the Readers selection of the Palette onto the job flow and double-click it to open the configuration editor.
  2. In the DB connection property, select the Basecamp JDBC data source from the drop-down menu.
  3. Enter the SQL query. For example: SELECT * FROM Projects

Write the Output of the Query to a UniversalDataWriter

  1. Drag a UniversalDataWriter from the Writers selection onto the jobflow.
  2. Double-click the UniversalDataWriter to open the configuration editor and add a file URL.
  3. Right-click the DBInputTable and then click Extract Metadata.
  4. Connect the output port of the DBInputTable to the UniversalDataWriter.
  5. In the resulting Select Metadata menu for the UniversalDataWriter, choose the Projects table. (You can also open this menu by right-clicking the input port for the UniversalDataWriter.)
  6. Click Run to write to the file.
