PolyBase で外部データソースとしてSquare を連携利用

CData ODBC Driver for Square とSQL Server 2019 のPolyBase を使って、リアルタイムSquare 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 Square data を組み合わせて使うことで、SQL Server データと同じようにSquare 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Square data の設定から、T-SQL クエリを使ったSquare data へのアクセスを行います。

The CData ODBC drivers offer unmatched performance for interacting with live Square data using PolyBase due to optimized data processing built into the driver. When you issue complex SQL queries from SQL Server to Square, the driver pushes down supported SQL operations, like filters and aggregations, directly to Square 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 Square data, using a single query to pull data from distributed sources.

Square 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 Square Sys is created automatically).

Square uses the OAuth authentication standard. To authenticate using OAuth, you will need to register an app with Square to obtain the OAuthClientId, OAuthClientSecret, and CallbackURL. See the "Getting Started" chapter of the help documentation for a guide to using OAuth.

Additionally, you must specify the LocationId. You can retrieve the Ids for your Locations by querying the Locations table. Alternatively, you can set the LocationId in the search criteria of your query.

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

Square 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.

CREATE MASTER KEY ENCRYPTION BY PASSWORD = 'password';

Creating a Credential Database

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

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

CREATE DATABASE SCOPED CREDENTIAL square_creds
WITH IDENTITY = 'username', SECRET = 'password';

Create an External Data Source for Square

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

For Square, set SERVERNAME to 'localhost' or '127.0.0.1' 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_square_source
WITH ( 
  LOCATION = 'odbc://SERVERNAME[:PORT]',
  CONNECTION_OPTIONS = 'DSN=CData Square Sys',
  -- PUSHDOWN = ON | OFF,
  CREDENTIAL = square_creds
);

Square のExternal Table を作成

After creating the external data source, use CREATE EXTERNAL TABLE statements to link to Square data from your SQL Server instance. The table column definitions must match those exposed by the CData ODBC Driver for Square. 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 Square Refunds would look similar to the following:

CREATE EXTERNAL TABLE Refunds(
  Reason [nvarchar](255) NULL,
  RefundedMoneyAmount [nvarchar](255) NULL,
  ...
) WITH ( 
  LOCATION='Refunds',
  DATA_SOURCE=cdata_square_source
);

Having created external tables for Square 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 Square, freeing up local resources and computing power.
