Query Oracle SCM Data in MySQL Workbench

Create a virtual MySQL database for Oracle SCM data in CData Connect (or Connect Server) and work with live Oracle SCM data in MySQL Workbench.

MySQL Workbench allows users to administer MySQL environments and gain better visibility into databases. When paired with CData Connect (on-premise or Connect Server), you get live access to Oracle SCM data as if it were a MySQL database. This article shows how to create a virtual database for Oracle SCM in Connect and work with live Oracle SCM data in MySQL Workbench.

Create a Virtual MySQL Database for Oracle SCM Data

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

  1. Login to Connect and click Connections.
  2. Select "Oracle SCM" from Available Data Sources.
  3. Enter the necessary authentication properties to connect to Oracle SCM.

    The following connection properties are required to connect to Oracle SCM data.

    • Url: The URL of the account that you want to connect to. Typically, this will be the URL of your Oracle Cloud service. For example,
    • User: The username of your Oracle Cloud service account.
    • Password: The password of your Oracle Cloud service account.
  4. Click Save Changes
  5. Click Privileges -> Add and add the new user (or an existing user) with the appropriate permissions.

With the virtual database created, you are ready to connect to Oracle SCM from MySQL Workbench.
