Connect to Salesforce Pardot Data in as an External Source in Dremio



Use the CData JDBC Driver to connect to Salesforce Pardot as an External Source in Dremio.

The CData JDBC Driver for Salesforce Pardot implements JDBC Standards and allows various applications, including Dremio, to work with live Salesforce Pardot data. Dremio is a data lakehouse platform designed to empower self-service, interactive analytics on the data lake. With the CData JDBC Driver, you can include live Salesforce Pardot data as a part of your enterprise data lake. This article describes how to connect to Salesforce Pardot data from Dremio as an External Source.

The CData JDBC Driver enables high-speed access to live Salesforce Pardot data in Dremio. Once you install the driver, authenticate with Salesforce Pardot and gain immediate access to Salesforce Pardot data within your data lake. By surfacing Salesforce Pardot data using native data types and handling complex filters, aggregations, & other operations automatically, the CData JDBC Driver grants seamless access to Salesforce Pardot data.

Build the ARP Connector

To use the CData JDBC Driver in Dremio, you need to build an Advanced Relation Pushdown (ARP) Connector. You can view the source code for the Connector on GitHub or download the ZIP file (GitHub.com) directly. Once you copy or extract the files, run the following command from the root directory of the connector (the directory containing the pom.xml file) to build the connector.

mvn clean install

Once the JAR file for the connector is built (in the target directory), you are ready to copy the ARP connector and JDBC Driver to your Dremio instance.

Installing the Connector and JDBC Driver

Install the ARP Connector to %DREMIO_HOME%/jars/ and the JDBC Driver for Salesforce Pardot to %DREMIO_HOME%/jars/3rdparty. You can use commands similar to the following:

ARP Connector

docker cp PATH\TO\dremio-salesforcepardot-plugin-20.0.0.jar dremio_image_name:/opt/dremio/jars/

JDBC Driver for Salesforce Pardot

docker cp PATH\TO\cdata.jdbc.salesforcepardot.jar dremio_image_name:/opt/dremio/jars/3rdparty/

Connecting to Salesforce Pardot

Salesforce Pardot will now appear as an External Source option in Dremio. The ARP Connector built uses a JDBC URL to connect to Salesforce Pardot data. The JDBC Driver has a built-in connection string designer that you can use (see below).

Built-in Connection String Designer

For assistance in constructing the JDBC URL, use the connection string designer built into the Salesforce Pardot JDBC Driver. Double-click the JAR file or execute the jar file from the command line.

java -jar cdata.jdbc.salesforcepardot.jar

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

Salesforce Pardot supports connecting through API Version, Username, Password and User Key.

  • ApiVersion: The Salesforce Pardot API version which the provided account can access. Defaults to 4.
  • User: The Username of the Salesforce Pardot account.
  • Password: The Password of the Salesforce Pardot account.
  • UserKey: The unique User Key for the Salesforce Pardot account. This key does not expire.
  • IsDemoAccount (optional): Set to TRUE to connect to a demo account.

Accessing the Pardot User Key

The User Key of the current account may be accessed by going to Settings -> My Profile, under the API User Key row.

NOTE: To use the JDBC Driver in Dremio, you will need a license (full or trial) and a Runtime Key (RTK). For more information on obtaining this license (or a trial), contact our sales team.

Add the Runtime Key (RTK) to the JDBC URL. You will end up with a JDBC URL similar to the following:

jdbc:salesforcepardot:RTK=5246...;ApiVersion=4;User=YourUsername;Password=YourPassword;UserKey=YourUserKey;

Access Salesforce Pardot as an External Source

To add Salesforce Pardot as an External Source, click to add a new source and select SalesforcePardot. Copy the JDBC URL and paste it into the New SalesforcePardot Source wizard.

Save the connection and you are ready to query live Salesforce Pardot data in Dremio, easily incorporating Salesforce Pardot data into your data lake.
