Connect to Exact Online Data in Aqua Data Studio

Access Exact Online data from tools in Aqua Data Studio such as the Visual Query Builder and the Table Data Editor.

The CData JDBC Driver for Exact Online integrates Exact Online data with wizards and analytics in IDEs like Aqua Data Studio. This article shows how to connect to Exact Online data through the connection manager and execute queries.

Create a JDBC Data Source

You can use the connection manager to define connection properties and save them in a new JDBC data source. The Exact Online data source can then be accessed from Aqua Data Studio tools.

  1. In Aqua Data Studio, select Register Server from the Servers menu.
  2. In the Register Server form, select the 'Generic - JDBC' connection.
  3. Enter the following JDBC connection properties:
    • Name: Enter a name for the data source; for example, Exact Online.
    • Driver Location: Click the Browse button and select the cdata.jdbc.exactonline.jar file, located in the lib subfolder of the installation directory.
    • Driver: Enter the Driver's class name, cdata.jdbc.exactonline.ExactOnlineDriver.
    • URL: Enter the JDBC URL, which starts with jdbc:exactonline: and is followed by a semicolon-separated list of connection properties. You will find information on the required connection string options in the help documentation. A typical JDBC URL is below:

      jdbc:exactonline:Region='United States';Division=5512;
  4. Exact Online uses the OAuth authentication standard. The InitiateOAuth connection property facilitates the OAuth flow -- by default, this is set to GETANDREFRESH. You can also use the embedded OAuth credentials or you can register an OAuth app with Exact to obtain your own. In addition to the OAuth values, provide the Region. If Division is not set, the default Division is determined.

    See the "Getting Started" chapter of the help documentation for more information.
