Integrate Amazon Marketplace Data in Your Informatica Cloud Instance

Use the CData JDBC Driver for Amazon Marketplace with the Informatica Cloud Secure Agent to access live Amazon Marketplace data from Informatica Cloud.

Informatica Cloud allows you to perform extract, transform, and load (ETL) tasks in the cloud. With the Cloud Secure Agent and the CData JDBC Driver for Amazon Marketplace, you get live access to Amazon Marketplace data, directly within Informatica Cloud. In this article, we will walk through downloading and registering the Cloud Secure Agent, connecting to Amazon Marketplace through the JDBC Driver and generating a mapping that can be used in any Informatica Cloud process.

Informatica Cloud Secure Agent

To work with the Amazon Marketplace data through the JDBC Driver, install the Cloud Secure Agent.

  1. Navigate to the Administrator page in Informatica Cloud
  2. Select the Runtime Environments tab
  3. Click "Download Secure Agent"
  4. Make note of the Install Token
  5. Run the installer on the client machine and register the Cloud Secure Agent with your username and install token

NOTE: It may take some time for all of the Cloud Secure Agent services to get up and running.

Connecting to the Amazon Marketplace JDBC Driver

With the Cloud Secure Agent installed and running, you are ready to connect to Amazon Marketplace through the JDBC Driver. Start by clicking the Connections tab and clicking New Connection. Fill in the following properties for the connection:

  • Connection Name: Name your connection (i.e.: CData Amazon Marketplace Connection)
  • Type: Select "JDBC_IC (Informatica Cloud)"
  • Runtime Environment: Select the runtime environment where you installed the Cloud Secure Agent
  • JDBC Connection URL: Set this to the JDBC URL for Amazon Marketplace. Your URL will look similar to the following:

    jdbc:amazonmarketplace:AWS Access Key Id=myAWSAccessKeyId;AWS Secret Key=myAWSSecretKey;MWS Auth Token=myMWSAuthToken;Seller Id=mySellerId;Marketplace=United States;

    To connect to the Amazon Marketplace Webservice (MWS), AWSAccessKeyId, MWSAuthToken, AWSSecretKey and SellerId are required. You can optionally set the Marketplace property. For more information on obtaining values for these properties, refer to the Help documentation.

    Built-In Connection String Designer

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

    java -jar cdata.jdbc.amazonmarketplace.jar

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

  • JDBC Jar Directory: Set this to the lib folder in the installation location for the JDBC Driver (on Windows, typically C:\Program Files\CData\CData JDBC Driver for Amazon Marketplace\)
  • Driver Class: Set this to cdata.jdbc.amazonmarketplace.AmazonMarketplaceDriver
  • Username: Set this to a placeholder value (since Amazon Marketplace does not require a username)
  • Password: Set this to a placeholder value (since Amazon Marketplace does not require a password)

Create a Mapping for Amazon Marketplace Data

With the connection to Amazon Marketplace configured, we can now access Amazon Marketplace data in any Informatica process. The steps below walk through creating a mapping for Amazon Marketplace to another data target.

  1. Navigate to the Data Integration page
  2. Click New.. and select Mapping from the Mappings tab
  3. Click the Source Object and in the Source tab, select the Connection and set the Source Type
  4. Click "Select" to choose the table to map
  5. In the Fields tab, select the fields from the Amazon Marketplace table to map
  6. Click the Target object and configure the Target source, table and fields. In the Field Mapping tab, map the source fields to the target fields.

With the mapping configured, you are ready to start integrating live Amazon Marketplace data with any of the supported connections in Informatica Cloud.
