Connect to Exact Online Data in CloverETL

Transfer Exact Online data using the visual workflow in the CloverETL data integration tool.

The CData JDBC Driver for Exact Online enables you to use the data transformation components in CloverETL to execute create, read, update, and delete (CRUD) commands to Exact Online data. In this article, you will use the JDBC Driver for Exact Online to set up a simple transfer into a flat file.

Connect to Exact Online as a JDBC Data Source

  1. Create the connection to Exact Online data. In a new CloverETL graph, right-click the Connections node in the Outline pane and click Connections -> Create Connection. The Database Connection wizard is displayed.
  2. Click the plus icon to load a driver from a JAR. Browse to the lib subfolder of the installation directory and select the cdata.jdbc.exactonline.jar file.
  3. Enter the JDBC URL. A typical JDBC URL is below: jdbc:exactonline:Region='United States';Division=5512;

    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.
