Connect to IBM Cloud SQL Query Data in CloverETL

Transfer IBM Cloud SQL Query data using the visual workflow in the CloverETL data integration tool.

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

Connect to IBM Cloud SQL Query as a JDBC Data Source

  1. Create the connection to IBM Cloud SQL Query 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.ibmcloud.jar file.
  3. Enter the JDBC URL. A typical JDBC URL is below: jdbc:ibmcloud:Api Key=MyAPIKey;Instance CRN=myInstanceCRN;Region=myRegion;Schema=mySchema;OAuth Client Id=myOAuthClientId;OAuth Client Secret=myOAuthClientSecret;

    IBM Cloud uses the OAuth and HMAC authentication standards. See the "Getting Started" chapter of the help documentation for a guide to using OAuth.

Query IBM Cloud SQL Query 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 IBM Cloud SQL Query JDBC data source from the drop-down menu.
  3. Enter the SQL query. For example: SELECT * FROM Jobs

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 Jobs table. (You can also open this menu by right-clicking the input port for the UniversalDataWriter.)
  6. Click Run to write to the file.
