Connect to Cosmos DB Data in IntelliJ

Integrate connectivity to Cosmos DB data with wizards in IntelliJ.

The CData JDBC Driver for Cosmos DB enables you to access Cosmos DB as a JDBC data source, providing integration with rapid development tools in IDEs. This article shows how to use the data source configuration wizard to connect to Cosmos DB data in IntelliJ.

Create a JBDC Data Source for Cosmos DB

Follow the steps below to add the driver JAR and define connection properties required to connect to Cosmos DB data.

  1. In the Data Sources window, right-click and then click Add Data Source -> DB Data Source.
  2. In the Data Source Properties dialog that appears, the following properties are required:

    • JDBC Driver Files: Click the button next to this menu to add the JDBC Driver file cdata.jdbc.cosmosdb.jar, located in the installation directory.
    • JDBC Driver Class: In this menu, select cdata.jdbc.cosmosdb.CosmosDBDriver from the list.
    • Database URL: Enter the connection URL in the JDBC URL property. The URL must start with jdbc:cosmosdb: and includes connection properties separated with semicolons.

      To obtain the connection string needed to connect to a Cosmos DB account using the SQL API, log in to the Azure Portal, select Azure Cosmos DB, and select your account. In the Settings section, click Connection String and set the following values:

      • AccountEndpoint: The Cosmos DB account URL from the Keys blade of the Cosmos DB account
      • AccountKey: In the Azure portal, navigate to the Cosmos DB service and select your Azure Cosmos DB account. From the resource menu, go to the Keys page. Find the PRIMARY KEY value and set AccountKey to this value.

      Built-in Connection String Designer

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

      java -jar cdata.jdbc.cosmosdb.jar

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

      A typical JDBC URL is the following:

      jdbc:cosmosdb:AccountEndpoint=myAccountEndpoint;AccountKey=myAccountKey;

Edit and Save Cosmos DB Data

To discover schema information, right-click the data source you just created and click Refresh Tables. To query a table, right-click it and then click Open Tables Editor. You can also modify records in the Table Editor.
