Integrate Live Oracle Eloqua Data into Custom Business Apps Built in Power Apps



CData Connect

Use CData Connect Cloud to create a virtual SQL Server Database for Oracle Eloqua data and integrate live Oracle Eloqua 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 Oracle Eloqua 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 Oracle Eloqua data.

CData Connect Cloud provides a pure SQL, cloud-to-cloud interface for Oracle Eloqua, allowing you to easily integrate with live Oracle Eloqua 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 Oracle Eloqua, leveraging server-side processing to quickly return Oracle Eloqua data.

Create a Virtual SQL Database for Oracle Eloqua 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 "Oracle Eloqua" from Available Data Sources.
  3. Enter the necessary authentication properties to connect to Oracle Eloqua.

    Oracle Eloqua への標準的な認証方法は、ログインメソッドによるものです。ログインメソッドでは、Company を設定し、User およびPassword をログインに使用するクレデンシャルに設定する必要があります。このメソッドは、SSL でHTTP Basic 認証を使用します。

    あるいは、Oracle Eloqua OAuth 認証を使用して接続することもできます。これは、ユーザー名やパスワードへのアクセスを保有していない場合や、それらを使いたくない場合に使用できます。OAuth は、他のユーザーが彼らのデータにアクセスできるようにするのに適しています。ログインクレデンシャルを使う方法は、自分のデータへのアクセスに適しています。

  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 Oracle Eloqua 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 (
    • Set SQL database name to the name of the virtual Oracle Eloqua database you created earlier (like eloquadb)
    • Set the Username and Password and click Create

Building a Data-Centric App for Oracle Eloqua Data

With the connection to Connect Cloud configured, you are ready to integrate live Oracle Eloqua 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 Oracle Eloqua data that you can save and publish for use within your organization.

SQL Access to Oracle Eloqua Data from Cloud Applications

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