  4. In the Example URL box, enter jdbc:datarobot:
  5. In the Extra Class Path tab, click Add.
  6. In the file explorer dialog that opens, select the JAR file for the driver, located in the lib subfolder of the installation directory.
  7. Click List Drivers to populate the Class Name menu with the class name for the driver, cdata.jdbc.datarobot.DataRobotDriver.

Define Connection Properties

Follow the steps below to save connection properties in the driver alias.

  1. Click Windows -> View Aliases.
  2. In the pane that lists the aliases, click the plus icon.
  3. In the Add Alias wizard that opens, the following fields are required for the JDBC driver:

    • Name: Enter a name for the alias; for example, CData DataRobot Source.
    • Driver: Select the CData JDBC Driver for DataRobot.
    • URL: Enter jdbc:datarobot:
    • User Name: Enter the username, which is added to the JDBC URL.
    • Password: Enter the password, which is added to the JDBC URL.
  4. If you want to define any additional properties, click Properties.
  5. In the Driver properties tab of the dialog that appears, select the Use driver properties checkbox.
  6. In the Specify column, select the checkboxes for the required connection properties.

    To connect to DataRobot, the following connection properties are required: User, Password, and PredictionInstance. DataRobotKey may also be required depending on your type of DataRobot predictions instance. If using the Predictions API, DataFile is required. The CSV DataFile should include a header row as the first row of the datafile. APIKey is not required, but can be supplied. If not supplied, the driver will handle obtaining an APIKey.

    User, DataRobotKey, and APIKey are the credentials for the DataRobot account.

    ProjectID, DataFile, and ModelId are the parameters for the project, dataset, and model type.

    Below is a typical connection string:

    jdbc:datarobot:PredictionInstance=myinstance.orm.datarobot.com;DataFile=PATH\TO\input_file.csv;DataRobotKey=123-abc-456-def;User=username;Password=password;

  7. In the dialog that appears after you click OK, click connect to test the connection.

Discover Schemas and Query DataRobot Data

After the metadata has loaded, a new tab for the DataRobot data source is displayed. On the Objects subtab, you can discover schema information, such as the available tables and views.

To view table data, select the table on the Objects tab. The table data is then loaded in a grid on the Content tab.

To execute an SQL query, enter the query on the SQL tab and then click Run SQL (the runner icon). For example:

SELECT Id, Prediction1Value FROM Predictions
