CData Connect



Use CData Connect Cloud to create a virtual SQL Server Database for YouTube Analytics data and integrate live YouTube Analytics data into apps built in Microsoft Power Apps.

Power Apps is a service for building and using custom business apps that connect to your data and work across the web and mobile — without the time and expense of custom software development. When paired with CData Connect Cloud, you get instant, cloud-to-cloud access to YouTube Analytics data from the apps you build using Power Apps. This article shows how to connect Connect Cloud from Power Apps and build an app based on live YouTube Analytics data.

CData Connect Cloud provides a pure SQL, cloud-to-cloud interface for YouTube Analytics, allowing you to easily integrate with live YouTube Analytics data in Power Apps — without replicating the data. CData Connect Cloud looks exactly like a SQL Server database to Power Apps and uses optimized data processing out of the box to push all supported SQL operations (filters, JOINs, etc) directly to YouTube Analytics, leveraging server-side processing to quickly return YouTube Analytics data.

Create a Virtual SQL Database for YouTube Analytics Data

CData Connect Cloud uses a straightforward, point-and-click interface to connect to data sources and generate APIs.

  1. Login to Connect Cloud and click Databases.
  2. Select "YouTube Analytics" from Available Data Sources.
  3. Enter the necessary authentication properties to connect to YouTube Analytics.

    YouTube Analytics への接続には、OAuth 認証標準を使います。ユーザーアカウントまたはサービスアカウントで認証できます。組織全体のアクセススコープを本製品に許可するには、サービスアカウントが必要です。下記で説明するとおり、本製品はこれらの認証フローをサポートします。

    ユーザー資格情報の接続プロパティを設定せずに接続できます。次を設定して、接続してください。ChannelId:YouTube チャンネルのId に設定。指定しない場合、認証されたユーザーのチャンネルのデータが返されます。ContentOwnerId:コンテンツ所有者のレポートを生成する場合に設定。接続すると、本製品はデフォルトブラウザでOAuth エンドポイントを開きます。ログインして、アプリケーションにアクセス許可を与えます。本製品がOAuth プロセスを完了します。

    他のOAuth 認証フローについては、ヘルプドキュメントの「OAuth 認証の使用」を参照してください。

  4. Click Test Database.
  5. Click Privileges -> Add and add the new user (or an existing user) with the appropriate permissions.

Connecting to CData Connect Cloud

To use Connect Cloud to integrate YouTube Analytics data into your Power Apps, you need a new SQL Server connection:

  1. Log in to Power Apps
  2. Click Data -> Connections -> New connection
  3. Select SQL Server
  4. In the connection wizard:

    • Choose to connect directly
    • Set SQL server name to the address of your Connect Cloud instance (myinstance.cdatacloud.net)
    • Set SQL database name to the name of the virtual YouTube Analytics database you created earlier (like youtubeanalyticsdb)
    • Set the Username and Password and click Create

Building a Data-Centric App for YouTube Analytics Data

With the connection to Connect Cloud configured, you are ready to integrate live YouTube Analytics data into the apps you build in Power Apps.

  1. Log in to Power Apps
  2. Click Create, hover over "Start from data" and click Make this app
  3. Select the SQL Server connection you created
  4. Search for or choose a table to work with
  5. Click Connect
  6. Customize the newly created app just like you would any other, including changing the layout and setting the fields exposed in BrowseScreen, DetailScreen, and EditScreen

At this point, you have an app with read and write access to live YouTube Analytics data that you can save and publish for use within your organization.

SQL Access to YouTube Analytics Data from Cloud Applications

Now you have a direct connection to live YouTube Analytics data from Microsoft Power Apps. You can create more connections and apps to drive business — all without replicating YouTube Analytics data.
