Connect to SFTP Data in IntelliJ

Integrate connectivity to SFTP data with wizards in IntelliJ.

The CData JDBC Driver for SFTP enables you to access SFTP 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 SFTP data in IntelliJ.

Create a JBDC Data Source for SFTP

Follow the steps below to add the driver JAR and define connection properties required to connect to SFTP 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.sftp.jar, located in the installation directory.
    • JDBC Driver Class: In this menu, select cdata.jdbc.sftp.SFTPDriver from the list.
    • Database URL: Enter the connection URL in the JDBC URL property. The URL must start with jdbc:sftp: and includes connection properties separated with semicolons.

      SFTP can be used to transfer files to and from SFTP servers using the SFTP Protocol. To connect, specify the RemoteHost;. service uses the User and Password and public key authentication (SSHClientCert). Choose an SSHAuthMode and specify connection values based on your selection.

      Set the following connection properties to control the relational view of the file system:

      • RemotePath: Set this to the current working directory.
      • TableDepth: Set this to control the depth of subfolders to report as views.
      • FileRetrievalDepth: Set this to retrieve files recursively and list them in the Root table.
      Stored Procedures are available to download files, upload files, and send protocol commands. See gdatamodel for more on using SQL to interact with the server.

      Built-in Connection String Designer

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

      java -jar cdata.jdbc.sftp.jar

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

      A typical JDBC URL is the following:

      jdbc:sftp:RemoteHost=MyFTPServer;

Edit and Save SFTP 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.
