Box JDBC Driver

Box クラウドストレージに連携するパワフルなJava アプリケーションを高速で開発・配布。



Use the CData JDBC Driver for Box with the Informatica Cloud Secure Agent to access live Box data from Informatica Cloud.

Informatica Cloud allows you to perform extract, transform, and load (ETL) tasks in the cloud. With the Cloud Secure Agent and the CData JDBC Driver for Box, you get live access to Box data, directly within Informatica Cloud. In this article, we will walk through downloading and registering the Cloud Secure Agent, connecting to Box through the JDBC Driver and generating a mapping that can be used in any Informatica Cloud process.

Informatica Cloud Secure Agent

To work with the Box data through the JDBC Driver, install the Cloud Secure Agent.

  1. Navigate to the Administrator page in Informatica Cloud
  2. Select the Runtime Environments tab
  3. Click "Download Secure Agent"
  4. Make note of the Install Token
  5. Run the installer on the client machine and register the Cloud Secure Agent with your username and install token

NOTE: It may take some time for all of the Cloud Secure Agent services to get up and running.

Connecting to the Box JDBC Driver

With the Cloud Secure Agent installed and running, you are ready to connect to Box through the JDBC Driver. Start by clicking the Connections tab and clicking New Connection. Fill in the following properties for the connection:

  • Connection Name: Name your connection (i.e.: CData Box Connection)
  • Type: Select "JDBC_IC (Informatica Cloud)"
  • Runtime Environment: Select the runtime environment where you installed the Cloud Secure Agent
  • JDBC Connection URL: Set this to the JDBC URL for Box. Your URL will look similar to the following:

    jdbc:box:OAuthClientId=MyOAuthClientId;OAuthClientSecret=MyOAuthClientSecret;CallbackURL=http://localhost:33333;InitiateOAuth=GETANDREFRESH;

    Box は、認証にOAuth スタンダードを使用します。Box への認証には、登録アプリのOAuthClientId、OAuthClientSecret、CallbackURL を入力します。詳細はヘルプドキュメントの「はじめに」を参照してください。

    尚、本製品はBox のファイルの一覧表示やユーザー管理情報の取得用です。Box に保管されているExcel、CSV、JSON などのファイル内のデータを読み込みたい場合には、Excel DriverCSV DriverJSON Driver をご利用ください。

    Built-In Connection String Designer

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

    java -jar cdata.jdbc.box.jar

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

  • JDBC Jar Directory: Set this to the lib folder in the installation location for the JDBC Driver (on Windows, typically C:\Program Files\CData\CData JDBC Driver for Box\)
  • Driver Class: Set this to cdata.jdbc.box.BoxDriver
  • Username: Set this to a placeholder value (since Box does not require a username)
  • Password: Set this to a placeholder value (since Box does not require a password)

Create a Mapping for Box Data

With the connection to Box configured, we can now access Box data in any Informatica process. The steps below walk through creating a mapping for Box to another data target.

  1. Navigate to the Data Integration page
  2. Click New.. and select Mapping from the Mappings tab
  3. Click the Source Object and in the Source tab, select the Connection and set the Source Type
  4. Click "Select" to choose the table to map
  5. In the Fields tab, select the fields from the Box table to map
  6. Click the Target object and configure the Target source, table and fields. In the Field Mapping tab, map the source fields to the target fields.

With the mapping configured, you are ready to start integrating live Box data with any of the supported connections in Informatica Cloud. Download a free, 30-day trial of the CData JDBC Driver for Box and start working with your live Box data in Informatica Cloud today.
