CData Connect



Use CData Connect Cloud to create a virtual SQL Server Database for Elasticsearch data and integrate live Elasticsearch data into apps built in Microsoft Power Apps.

Power Apps is a service for building and using custom business apps that connect to your data and work across the web and mobile — without the time and expense of custom software development. When paired with CData Connect Cloud, you get instant, cloud-to-cloud access to Elasticsearch data from the apps you build using Power Apps. This article shows how to connect Connect Cloud from Power Apps and build an app based on live Elasticsearch data.

CData Connect Cloud provides a pure SQL, cloud-to-cloud interface for Elasticsearch, allowing you to easily integrate with live Elasticsearch data in Power Apps — without replicating the data. CData Connect Cloud looks exactly like a SQL Server database to Power Apps and uses optimized data processing out of the box to push all supported SQL operations (filters, JOINs, etc) directly to Elasticsearch, leveraging server-side processing to quickly return Elasticsearch data.

Create a Virtual SQL Database for Elasticsearch Data

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

  1. Login to Connect Cloud and click Databases.
  2. Select "Elasticsearch" from Available Data Sources.
  3. Enter the necessary authentication properties to connect to Elasticsearch.

    接続するには、Server およびPort 接続プロパティを設定します。 認証には、User とPassword プロパティ、PKI (public key infrastructure)、またはその両方を設定します。 PKI を使用するには、SSLClientCert、SSLClientCertType、SSLClientCertSubject、およびSSLClientCertPassword プロパティを設定します。

    本製品は、認証とTLS/SSL 暗号化にX-Pack Security を使用しています。TLS/SSL で接続するには、Server 値に'https://' を接頭します。Note: PKI を 使用するためには、TLS/SSL およびクライアント認証はX-Pack 上で有効化されていなければなりません。

    接続されると、X-Pack では、設定したリルムをベースにユーザー認証およびロールの許可が実施されます。

  4. Click Test Database.
  5. Click Privileges -> Add and add the new user (or an existing user) with the appropriate permissions.

Connecting to CData Connect Cloud

To use Connect Cloud to integrate Elasticsearch data into your Power Apps, you need a new SQL Server connection:

  1. Log in to Power Apps
  2. Click Data -> Connections -> New connection
  3. Select SQL Server
  4. In the connection wizard:

    • Choose to connect directly
    • Set SQL server name to the address of your Connect Cloud instance (myinstance.cdatacloud.net)
    • Set SQL database name to the name of the virtual Elasticsearch database you created earlier (like elasticsearchdb)
    • Set the Username and Password and click Create

Building a Data-Centric App for Elasticsearch Data

With the connection to Connect Cloud configured, you are ready to integrate live Elasticsearch data into the apps you build in Power Apps.

  1. Log in to Power Apps
  2. Click Create, hover over "Start from data" and click Make this app
  3. Select the SQL Server connection you created
  4. Search for or choose a table to work with
  5. Click Connect
  6. Customize the newly created app just like you would any other, including changing the layout and setting the fields exposed in BrowseScreen, DetailScreen, and EditScreen

At this point, you have an app with read and write access to live Elasticsearch data that you can save and publish for use within your organization.

SQL Access to Elasticsearch Data from Cloud Applications

Now you have a direct connection to live Elasticsearch data from Microsoft Power Apps. You can create more connections and apps to drive business — all without replicating Elasticsearch data.
