Connect to Google Analytics Data in CloverETL

Transfer Google Analytics data using the visual workflow in the CloverETL data integration tool.

The CData JDBC Driver for Google Analytics enables you to use the data transformation components in CloverETL to execute queries to Google Analytics data. In this article, you will use the JDBC Driver for Google Analytics to set up a simple transfer into a flat file.

Connect to Google Analytics as a JDBC Data Source

  1. Create the connection to Google Analytics 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.googleanalytics.jar file.
  3. Enter the JDBC URL. A typical JDBC URL is below: jdbc:googleanalytics:Profile=MyProfile;

    Google uses the OAuth authentication standard. To access Google APIs on behalf on individual users, you can use the embedded credentials or you can register your own OAuth app.

    OAuth also enables you to use a service account to connect on behalf of users in a Google Apps domain. To authenticate with a service account, you will need to register an application to obtain the OAuth JWT values.

    In addition to the OAuth values, set Profile to the profile you want to connect to. This can be set to either the Id or website URL for the Profile. If not specified, the first Profile returned will be used.

Query Google Analytics Data with the DBInputTable Component

  1. Drag a DBInputTable from the Readers selection of the Palette onto the job flow and double-click it to open the configuration editor.
  2. In the DB connection property, select the Google Analytics JDBC data source from the drop-down menu.
  3. Enter the SQL query. For example: SELECT * FROM Traffic

Write the Output of the Query to a UniversalDataWriter

  1. Drag a UniversalDataWriter from the Writers selection onto the jobflow.
  2. Double-click the UniversalDataWriter to open the configuration editor and add a file URL.
  3. Right-click the DBInputTable and then click Extract Metadata.
  4. Connect the output port of the DBInputTable to the UniversalDataWriter.
  5. In the resulting Select Metadata menu for the UniversalDataWriter, choose the Traffic table. (You can also open this menu by right-clicking the input port for the UniversalDataWriter.)
  6. Click Run to write to the file.
