Provide connectivity to Gmail data through an SAP BusinessObjects universe.

This article shows how to use the CData JDBC Driver for Gmail to connect to Gmail from SAP BusinessObjects Business Intelligence applications. You will use the Information Design Tool to analyze Gmail data and create a universe on the CData JDBC Driver for Gmail. You will then connect to the universe from Web Intelligence.

Create the JDBC Connection to Gmail

Follow the steps below to create a connection to the Gmail JDBC data source in the Information Design Tool.

  1. Copy the CData JAR and .lic file into the following subfolder in the installation directory for BusinessObjects: dataAccess\connectionServer\jdbc\drivers\jdbc. The CData JAR is located in the lib subfolder of the installation directory.
  2. Right-click your project and click New -> New Relational Connection.
  3. In the wizard that results, click Generic -> Generic JDBC datasource -> JDBC Drivers.
  4. On the next page of the wizard enter the connection details.
  5. On the next page, set the Authentication Mode option to "Use specified username and password". Enter the username, password, and JDBC URL. The JDBC URL begins with jdbc:gmail: and is followed by a semicolon-separated list of connection properties.

    Gmail に接続する方法は2つあります。ログインクレデンシャルかOAuth のいずれかを選択する前に、まずGmail のアカウント設定でIMAP アクセスを有効にしてください。詳しくは、ヘルプドキュメントの「はじめに」-「Gmail への接続」を参照してください。

    Authentication セクションのUser とPassword プロパティに、有効なGmail ユーザー資格情報を設定します。

    あるいは、Password を指定する代わりに、OAuth 認証標準を使います。 個々のユーザーに代わってGoogle API にアクセスするには、埋め込みクレデンシャルを使用するか、独自のOAuth アプリを登録することができます。

    また、OAuth を利用することで、Google Apps ドメイン内のユーザーに代わってサービスアカウントを使用して接続することができます。サービスアカウントで認証するには、アプリケーションを登録してOAuth JWT 値を取得する必要があります。

    OAuth 値に加え、User を指定する必要があります。詳しくは、ヘルプドキュメントの「はじめに」を参照してください。

    A typical JDBC URL is below:

    jdbc:gmail:User=username;Password=password;
  6. Enter the driver class: cdata.jdbc.gmail.GmailDriver
  7. Finish the wizard with the default values for connection pooling and custom parameters.

Analyze Gmail Data in the Information Design Tool

You can use the JDBC connection to analyze Gmail data in the Information Design Tool.

  1. In the Local Projects view, double-click the connection (the .cnx file) to open the Gmail data source.
  2. On the Show Values tab, you can load table data and enter SQL queries. To view table data, expand the node for the table, right-click the table, and click Show Values. Values will be displayed in the Raw Data tab.
  3. On the Analysis tab, you can then analyze data by dragging and dropping columns onto the axes of a chart.

Publish the Local Connection

To publish the universe to the CMS, you additionally need to publish the connection.

  1. In the Local Projects view, right-click the connection and click Publish Connection to a Repository.
  2. Enter the host and port of the repository and connection credentials.
  3. Select the folder where the connection will be published.
  4. In the success dialog that results, click Yes to create a connection shortcut.

Create a Universe on the JDBC Driver for Gmail

You can follow the steps below to create a universe on the JDBC driver. The universe in this example will be published to a repository, so it uses the published connection created in the previous step.

  1. In the Information Design Tool, click File->New Universe.
  2. Select your project.
  3. Select the option to create the universe on a relational data source.
  4. Select the shortcut to the published connection.
  5. Enter a name for the Data Foundation.
  6. Import tables and columns that you want to access as objects.
  7. Enter a name for the Business Layer.

Publish the Universe

You can follow the steps below to publish the universe to the CMS.

  1. In the Local Projects view, right-click the business layer and click Publish -> To a Repository.
  2. In the Publish Universe dialog, enter any integrity checks before importing.
  3. Select or create a folder on the repository where the universe will be published.

Query Gmail Data in Web Intelligence

You can use the published universe to connect to Gmail in Web Intelligence.

  1. Copy the cdata.jdbc.gmail.lic file to the following subfolder in the BusinessObjects installation directory: \dataAccess\connectionServer\jdbc\drivers\jdbc. The license file is located in the lib subfolder of the installation directory.
  2. Open Web Intelligence from the BusinessObjects launchpad and create a new document.
  3. Select the Universe option for the data source.
  4. Select the Gmail universe. This opens a Query Panel. Drag objects to the Result Objects pane to use them in the query.
