Connect to Dynamics AX Data in IntelliJ

Integrate connectivity to Dynamics AX data with wizards in IntelliJ.

The CData JDBC Driver for Dynamics AX enables you to access Dynamics AX 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 Dynamics AX data in IntelliJ.

Create a JBDC Data Source for Dynamics AX

Follow the steps below to add the driver JAR and define connection properties required to connect to Dynamics AX 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.dynamicsax.jar, located in the installation directory.
    • JDBC Driver Class: In this menu, select cdata.jdbc.dynamicsax.DynamicsAXDriver from the list.
    • Database URL: Enter the connection URL in the JDBC URL property. The URL must start with jdbc:dynamicsax: and includes connection properties separated with semicolons.

      To connect to DynamicsAX, specify User, Domain, and ObjectServer. You can also surface tables for a specific Company; when this property is blank, the default company is used.

      Alternatively, you can use the .NET Business Connector to connect on behalf of DynamicsAX users. You can obtain the ProxyUser and ProxyDomain properties on the System service accounts form: Click System Administration -> Setup -> System -> System Service Accounts. Additionally, set ProxyPassword.

      By default, only transaction data and base information from the TRANSACTION and MAIN table groups is returned. You can specify which groups to return with TableGroups.

      Set Language to use the same language you use in your DynamicsAX labels.

      Built-in Connection String Designer

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

      java -jar cdata.jdbc.dynamicsax.jar

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

      A typical JDBC URL is the following:

      jdbc:dynamicsax:User=MyUser;Domain=MyDomain;objectserver=MicrosoftDynamicsAX@WIN-1IP52JPQVJS:2712;

Edit and Save Dynamics AX 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. You can also modify records in the Table Editor.
