Connect to ActiveCampaign Data in HULFT Integrate

Connect to ActiveCampaign as a JDBC data source in HULFT Integrate

HULFT Integrate is a modern data integration platform that provides a drag-and-drop user interface to create cooperation flows, data conversion, and processing so that complex data connections are easier than ever to execute. When paired with the CData JDBC Driver for ActiveCampaign, HULFT Integrate can work with live ActiveCampaign data. This article walks through connecting to ActiveCampaign and moving the data into a CSV file.

With built-in optimized data processing, the CData JDBC Driver offers unmatched performance for interacting with live ActiveCampaign data. When you issue complex SQL queries to ActiveCampaign, the driver pushes supported SQL operations, like filters and aggregations, directly to ActiveCampaign and utilizes the embedded SQL engine to process unsupported operations client-side (often SQL functions and JOIN operations). Its built-in dynamic metadata querying allows you to work with and analyze ActiveCampaign data using native data types.

Enable Access to ActiveCampaign

To enable access to ActiveCampaign data from HULFT Integrate projects:

  1. Copy the CData JDBC Driver JAR file (and license file if it exists), cdata.jdbc.activecampaign.jar (and cdata.jdbc.activecampaign.lic), to the jdbc_adapter subfolder for the Integrate Server
  2. Restart the HULFT Integrate Server and launch HULFT Integrate Studio

Build a Project with Access to ActiveCampaign Data

Once you copy the JAR files, you can create a project with access to ActiveCampaign data. Start by opening Integrate Studio and creating a new project.

  1. Name the project
  2. Ensure the "Create script" checkbox is checked
  3. Click Next
  4. Name the script (e.g.: ActiveCampaigntoCSV)

Once you create the project, add components to the script to copy ActiveCampaign data to a CSV file.

Configure an Execute Select SQL Component

Drag an "Execute Select SQL" component from the Tool Palette (Database -> JDBC) into the Script workspace.

  1. In the "Required settings" tab for the Destination, click "Add" to create a new connection for ActiveCampaign. Set the following properties:
    • Name: ActiveCampaign Connection Settings
    • Driver class name: cdata.jdbc.activecampaign.ActiveCampaignDriver
    • URL: jdbc:activecampaign:URL=yourUrl;APIKey=yourApiKey

      Built-in Connection String Designer

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

      java -jar cdata.jdbc.activecampaign.jar

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

      ActiveCampaign supports authenticating with the API Key. To connect to ActiveCampaign, set the following:

      • URL: This can be found in your account on the My Settings page under the Developer tab. For example: https://{yourAccountName}
      • APIKey: This can be found in your account on the Settings page under the Developer tab. Each user in your ActiveCampaign account has their own unique API key.
  2. Write your SQL statement. For example:
    SELECT LastName, Email FROM Contacts
  3. Click "Extraction test" to ensure the connection and query are configured properly
  4. Click "Execute SQL statement and set output schema"
  5. Click "Finish"

Configure a Write CSV File Component

Drag a "Write CSV File" component from the Tool Palette (File -> CSV) onto the workspace.

  1. Set a file to write the query results to (e.g. Contacts.csv)
  2. Set "Input data" to the "Select SQL" component
  3. Add columns for each field selected in the SQL query
  4. In the "Write settings" tab, check the checkbox to "Insert column names into first row"
  5. Click "Finish"

Map ActiveCampaign Fields to the CSV Columns

Map each column from the "Select" component to the corresponding column for the "CSV" component.

Finish the Script

Drag the "Start" component onto the "Select" component and the "CSV" component onto the "End" component. Build the script and run the script to move ActiveCampaign data into a CSV file.
