Connect to Acumatica Data in RapidMiner

Integrate Acumatica data with standard components and data source configuration wizards in RapidMiner Studio.

This article shows how you can easily integrate the CData JDBC driver for Acumatica into your processes in RapidMiner. This article uses the CData JDBC Driver for Acumatica to transfer Acumatica data to a process in RapidMiner.

Connect to Acumatica in RapidMiner as a JDBC Data Source

You can follow the procedure below to establish a JDBC connection to Acumatica:

  1. Add a new database driver for Acumatica: Click Connections -> Manage Database Drivers.
  2. In the resulting wizard, click the Add button and enter a name for the connection.
  3. Enter the prefix for the JDBC URL: jdbc:acumatica:
  4. Enter the path to the cdata.jdbc.acumatica.jar file, located in the lib subfolder of the installation directory.
  5. Enter the driver class: cdata.jdbc.acumatica.AcumaticaDriver
  6. Create a new Acumatica connection: Click Connections -> Manage Database Connections.
  7. Enter a name for your connection.
  8. For Database System, select the Acumatica driver you configured previously.
  9. Enter your connection string in the Host box.

    Set the following connection properties to connect to Acumatica:

    • User: Set this to your username.
    • Password: Set this to your password.
    • Company: Set this to your company.
    • Url: Set this to your Acumatica URL, in the format http://{Acumatica ERP instance URL}/entity/{Endpoint name}/{Endpoint version}/.
      For example: https://acumatica.com/entity/Default/17.200.001/

    See the Getting Started guide in the CData driver documentation for more information.

    Built-in Connection String Designer

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

    java -jar cdata.jdbc.acumatica.jar

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

    A typical connection string is below:

    Url = https://try.acumatica.com/ISV/entity/Default/17.200.001/;User=user;Password=password;Company=CompanyName;
  10. Enter your username and password if necessary.

You can now use your Acumatica connection with the various RapidMiner operators in your process. To retrieve Acumatica data, drag the Retrieve operator from the Operators view. With the Retrieve operator selected, you can then define which table to retrieve in the Parameters view by clicking the folder icon next to the "repository entry." In the resulting Repository Browser, you can expand your connection node to select the desired example set.

Finally, wire the output to the Retrieve process to a result, and run the process to see the Acumatica data.
