PolyBase で外部データソースとしてQuickBooks POS を連携利用





QuickBooks POS ODBC Driver

QuickBooks ODBC ドライバーは、ODBC 接続をサポートする任意のアプリケーションからリアルタイムなQuickbooks Point of Sale データに直接接続できるパワフルなツールです。標準のODBC ドライバーインタフェースを使用して、データベースのようにQuickBooks POS データにアクセスし、QuickBooks のインベントリ、トランザクション、アカウントなどの読み、書き、更新を実行できます。

CData ODBC Driver for QuickBooks POS とSQL Server 2019 のPolyBase を使って、リアルタイムQuickBooks POS data に外部データソースとしてアクセス。

SQL Server のPolyBase は、データベーステーブルをクエリするTransact-SQL シンタックスを使って、外部データにクエリする仕組みです。 CData ODBC Drivers for QuickBooks POS data を組み合わせて使うことで、SQL Server データと同じようにQuickBooks POS data へのアクセスが可能です。 本記事では、PolyBase 外部データソースへのQuickBooks POS data の設定から、T-SQL クエリを使ったQuickBooks POS data へのアクセスを行います。

The CData ODBC drivers offer unmatched performance for interacting with live QuickBooks POS data using PolyBase due to optimized data processing built into the driver. When you issue complex SQL queries from SQL Server to QuickBooks POS, the driver pushes down supported SQL operations, like filters and aggregations, directly to QuickBooks POS and utilizes the embedded SQL engine to process unsupported operations (often SQL functions and JOIN operations) client-side. And with PolyBase, you can also join SQL Server data with QuickBooks POS data, using a single query to pull data from distributed sources.

QuickBooks POS への接続

If you have not already, first specify connection properties in an ODBC DSN (data source name). This is the last step of the driver installation. You can use the Microsoft ODBC Data Source Administrator to create and configure ODBC DSNs. To create an external data source in SQL Server using PolyBase, configure a System DSN (CData QuickBooks POS Sys is created automatically).

ローカルQuickBooks インスタンスに接続する場合は、接続プロパティを設定する必要はありません。

本製品 はリモートコネクタ経由でQuickBooks にリクエストを作成します。リモートコネクタはQuickBooks POS と同じマシン上で動作し、軽量の組み込みWeb サーバーを介して接続を受け入れます。サーバーはSSL/TLS をサポートし、ユーザーにリモートマシンからのセキュアな接続を可能にします。

初めて接続するときは、リモートコネクタをQuickBooks POS で認可する必要があります。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。

Click "Test Connection" to ensure that the DSN is connected to QuickBooks POS properly. Navigate to the Tables tab to review the table definitions for QuickBooks POS.

QuickBooks POS Data の外部データソースの作成

After configuring the connection, you need to create a master encryption key and a credential database for the external data source.

Creating a Master Encryption Key

Execute the following SQL command to create a new master key, 'ENCRYPTION,' to encrypt the credentials for the external data source.


Creating a Credential Database

Execute the following SQL command to create credentials for the external data source connected to QuickBooks POS data.

NOTE: Since QuickBooks POS does not require a User or Password to authenticate, you may use whatever values you wish for IDENTITY and SECRET.

WITH IDENTITY = 'username', SECRET = 'password';

Create an External Data Source for QuickBooks POS

Execute the following SQL command to create an external data source for QuickBooks POS with PolyBase, using the DSN and credentials configured earlier.

For QuickBooks POS, set SERVERNAME to 'localhost' or '' and leave PORT empty. PUSHDOWN is set to ON by default, meaning the ODBC Driver can leverage server-side processing for complex queries.

CREATE EXTERNAL DATA SOURCE cdata_quickbookspos_source
  CREDENTIAL = quickbookspos_creds

QuickBooks POS のExternal Table を作成

After creating the external data source, use CREATE EXTERNAL TABLE statements to link to QuickBooks POS data from your SQL Server instance. The table column definitions must match those exposed by the CData ODBC Driver for QuickBooks POS. You can refer to the Tables tab of the DSN Configuration Wizard to see the table definition.

Sample CREATE TABLE Statement

The statement to create an external table based on a QuickBooks POS Customers would look similar to the following:

  ListId [nvarchar](255) NULL,
  AccountLimit [nvarchar](255) NULL,
) WITH ( 

Having created external tables for QuickBooks POS in your SQL Server instance, you are now able to query local and remote data simultaneously. Thanks to built-in query processing in the CData ODBC Driver, you know that as much query processing as possible is being pushed to QuickBooks POS, freeing up local resources and computing power.
