Plaid 連携ソリューション


Use the CData JDBC Driver for Plaid to create a virtual data source for Plaid data in the Denodo Virtual DataPort Administrator.

Denodo Platform is a data virtualization product providing a single point of contact for enterprise database data. When paired with the CData JDBC Driver for Plaid, Denodo users can work with live Plaid data alongside other enterprise data sources. This article walks through creating a virtual data source for Plaid in the Denodo Virtual DataPort Administrator.

With built-in optimized data processing, the CData JDBC Driver offers unmatched performance for interacting with live Plaid data. When you issue complex SQL queries to Plaid, the driver pushes supported SQL operations, like filters and aggregations, directly to Plaid and utilizes the embedded SQL engine to process unsupported operations client-side (often SQL functions and JOIN operations). Its built-in dynamic metadata querying allows you to work with and analyze Plaid data using native data types.

Create a Plaid Virtual Port

To connect to live Plaid data from Denodo, you need to copy the JDBC Driver JAR file to the external library directory for Denodo and create a new JDBC Data Source from the Virtual DataPort Administrator tool.

  1. Download the CData JDBC Driver for Plaid installer, unzip the package, and run the JAR file to install the driver.
  2. Copy the JAR File (and license file if it exists) from the installation location (typically C:\Program Files\CData\CData JDBC Driver for Plaid\lib\) to the Denodo external library directory (C:\Denodo\Denodo Platform\lib-external\jdbc-drivers\cdata-plaid-19).
  3. Open the Denodo Virtual DataPort Administrator tool and navigate to the Server Explorer tab.
  4. Right-click "admin" and select New -> Data source -> JDBC.
  5. Configure the JDBC Connection:
    • Name: your choice, e.g.: plaid
    • Database adapter: Generic
    • Driver class path: C:\Denodo\Denodo Platform\lib-external\jdbc-drivers\cdata-plaid-19
    • Driver class: cdata.jdbc.plaid.PlaidDriver
    • Database URI: Set this to a JDBC URL using the necessary connection properties. For example,

      jdbc:plaid:AccountId=123456789;InitiateOAuth=GETANDREFRESH

      Information on creating the Database URI follows:

      Built-In Connection String Designer

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

      java -jar cdata.jdbc.plaid.jar

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

      You can connect to Plaid using the embedded OAuth connectivity. When you connect, the Plaid OAuth endpoint opens in your browser. Log in and grant permissions to complete the OAuth process. See the OAuth section in the online Help documentation for more information on other OAuth authentication flows.

      Optionally set the Account Id property to return data related to a specific Account.

  6. Click the "Test connection" button to confirm the configuration and click Save.

View Plaid Data in the VirtualPort Administrator Tool

After creating the data source, you can create a base view of Plaid data for use in the Denodo Platform.

  1. Click the "Create base view" button in the newly created VirtualPort (admin.Plaid).
  2. Expand the object tree and select the objects (tables) you wish to import.
  3. Click the "Create selected" button to create views of the Plaid data.
    Optional: Click "Create associations from foreign keys" to define relationships between the objects.
  4. With the view(s) created, navigate to a table (cdata_plaid_transactions) in the Server Explorer and double-click the selected table.
  5. In the new tab, click "Execution panel" to open a query panel.
  6. Customize the query in the "Execute" tab or use the default:
    SELECT * FROM cdata_plaid_transactions CONTEXT ('i18n'='us_est', 'cache_wait_for_load'='true')
    
  7. Click Execute to view the data.

With the base view created, you can now work with live Plaid data like you would any other data source in Denodo Platform, for example, querying Plaid in the Denodo Data Catalog.
