Create an SAP BusinessObjects Universe on the CData JDBC Driver for Google Campaign Manager

Provide connectivity to Google Campaign Manager data through an SAP BusinessObjects universe.

This article shows how to use the CData JDBC Driver for Google Campaign Manager to connect to Google Campaign Manager from SAP BusinessObjects Business Intelligence applications. You will use the Information Design Tool to analyze Google Campaign Manager data and create a universe on the CData JDBC Driver for Google Campaign Manager. You will then connect to the universe from Web Intelligence.

Create the JDBC Connection to Google Campaign Manager

Follow the steps below to create a connection to the Google Campaign Manager JDBC data source in the Information Design Tool.

  1. Copy the CData JAR and .lic file into the following subfolder in the installation directory for BusinessObjects: dataAccess\connectionServer\jdbc\drivers\jdbc. The CData JAR is located in the lib subfolder of the installation directory.
  2. Right-click your project and click New -> New Relational Connection.
  3. In the wizard that results, click Generic -> Generic JDBC datasource -> JDBC Drivers.
  4. On the next page of the wizard enter the connection details.
  5. On the next page, set the Authentication Mode option to "Use specified username and password". Enter the username, password, and JDBC URL. The JDBC URL begins with jdbc:googlecm: and is followed by a semicolon-separated list of connection properties.

    Google Campaign Manager uses the OAuth authentication standard. The data provider facilitates OAuth in various ways as described below. The following OAuth flow requires the authenticating user to interact with DoubleClick Campaign Manager, using the browser. You can also use a service account to authenticate.

    For authentication guides, see the Getting Started section of the data provider help documentation.

    A typical JDBC URL is below:

    jdbc:googlecm:UserProfileID=MyUserProfileID;
  6. Enter the driver class: cdata.jdbc.googlecm.GoogleCMDriver
  7. Finish the wizard with the default values for connection pooling and custom parameters.

Analyze Google Campaign Manager Data in the Information Design Tool

You can use the JDBC connection to analyze Google Campaign Manager data in the Information Design Tool.

  1. In the Local Projects view, double-click the connection (the .cnx file) to open the Google Campaign Manager data source.
  2. On the Show Values tab, you can load table data and enter SQL queries. To view table data, expand the node for the table, right-click the table, and click Show Values. Values will be displayed in the Raw Data tab.
  3. On the Analysis tab, you can then analyze data by dragging and dropping columns onto the axes of a chart.

Publish the Local Connection

To publish the universe to the CMS, you additionally need to publish the connection.

  1. In the Local Projects view, right-click the connection and click Publish Connection to a Repository.
  2. Enter the host and port of the repository and connection credentials.
  3. Select the folder where the connection will be published.
  4. In the success dialog that results, click Yes to create a connection shortcut.

Create a Universe on the JDBC Driver for Google Campaign Manager

You can follow the steps below to create a universe on the JDBC driver. The universe in this example will be published to a repository, so it uses the published connection created in the previous step.

  1. In the Information Design Tool, click File->New Universe.
  2. Select your project.
  3. Select the option to create the universe on a relational data source.
  4. Select the shortcut to the published connection.
  5. Enter a name for the Data Foundation.
  6. Import tables and columns that you want to access as objects.
  7. Enter a name for the Business Layer.

Publish the Universe

You can follow the steps below to publish the universe to the CMS.

  1. In the Local Projects view, right-click the business layer and click Publish -> To a Repository.
  2. In the Publish Universe dialog, enter any integrity checks before importing.
  3. Select or create a folder on the repository where the universe will be published.

Query Google Campaign Manager Data in Web Intelligence

You can use the published universe to connect to Google Campaign Manager in Web Intelligence.

  1. Copy the cdata.jdbc.googlecm.lic file to the following subfolder in the BusinessObjects installation directory: \dataAccess\connectionServer\jdbc\drivers\jdbc. The license file is located in the lib subfolder of the installation directory.
  2. Open Web Intelligence from the BusinessObjects launchpad and create a new document.
  3. Select the Universe option for the data source.
  4. Select the Google Campaign Manager universe. This opens a Query Panel. Drag objects to the Result Objects pane to use them in the query.
