Connect to Google Sheets Data in IntelliJ

Integrate connectivity to Google Sheets data with wizards in IntelliJ.

The CData JDBC Driver for Google Sheets enables you to access Google Sheets as a JDBC data source, providing integration with rapid development tools in IDEs. This article shows how to use the data source configuration wizard to connect to Google Sheets data in IntelliJ.

Create a JBDC Data Source for Google Sheets

Follow the steps below to add the driver JAR and define connection properties required to connect to Google Sheets data.

  1. In the Data Sources window, right-click and then click Add Data Source -> DB Data Source.
  2. In the Data Source Properties dialog that appears, the following properties are required:

    • JDBC Driver Files: Click the button next to this menu to add the JDBC Driver file cdata.jdbc.googlesheets.jar, located in the installation directory.
    • JDBC Driver Class: In this menu, select cdata.jdbc.googlesheets.GoogleSheetsDriver from the list.
    • Database URL: Enter the connection URL in the JDBC URL property. The URL must start with jdbc:googlesheets: and includes connection properties separated with semicolons.

      You can connect to a spreadsheet by providing authentication to Google and then setting the Spreadsheet connection property to the name or feed link of the spreadsheet. If you want to view a list of information about the spreadsheets in your Google Drive, execute a query to the Spreadsheets view after you authenticate.

      ClientLogin (username/password authentication) has been officially deprecated since April 20, 2012 and is now no longer available. Instead, use the OAuth 2.0 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.

      See the Getting Started chapter in the help documentation to connect to Google Sheets from different types of accounts: Google accounts, Google Apps accounts, and accounts using two-step verification.

      Built-in Connection String Designer

      For assistance in constructing the JDBC URL, use the connection string designer built into the Google Sheets JDBC Driver. Either double-click the JAR file or execute the jar file from the command-line.

      java -jar cdata.jdbc.googlesheets.jar

      Fill in the connection properties and copy the connection string to the clipboard.

      A typical JDBC URL is the following:

      jdbc:googlesheets:Spreadsheet=MySheet;InitiateOAuth=GETANDREFRESH

Edit and Save Google Sheets Data

To discover schema information, right-click the data source you just created and click Refresh Tables. To query a table, right-click it and then click Open Tables Editor. You can also modify records in the Table Editor.
