Integrate Authorize.Net Data into Automated Tasks with Power Automate

Use the CData Cloud Hub to create a virtual SQL Server database for Authorize.Net data and integrate live Authorize.Net data into your Power Automate (Microsoft Flow) tasks.

Power Automate (Microsoft Flow) is an online service that automates events (known as workflows) across the most common apps and services. When paired with the CData Cloud Hub, you get instant, cloud-to-cloud access to Authorize.Net data for visualizations, dashboards, and more. This article shows how to connect to the Cloud Hub from Power Automate and integrate live Authorize.Net data into your workflows and tasks.

The CData Cloud Hub provides a pure SQL, cloud-to-cloud interface for Authorize.Net, allowing you to easily integrate with live Authorize.Net data in Power Automate — without replicating the data. The CData Cloud Hub looks exactly like a SQL Server database to Power Automate and uses optimized data processing out of the box to push all supported SQL operations (filters, JOINs, etc) directly to Authorize.Net, leveraging server-side processing to quickly return Authorize.Net data.

Create a Virtual SQL Database for Authorize.Net Data

CData Cloud Hub uses a straightforward, point-and-click interface to connect to data sources and generate APIs.

  1. Login to Cloud Hub and click Databases.
  2. Select "Authorize.Net" from Available Data Sources.
  3. Enter the necessary authentication properties to connect to Authorize.Net.

    You can obtain the necessary connection properties on the Security Settings -> General Settings page after logging into your Merchant Account.

    • UseSandbox: The Authorize.Net API to be used to process transactions. If you are using a production account, this property can be left blank. If you are using a developer test account, set this to 'TRUE'.
    • LoginID: The API login Id associated with your payment gateway account. This property is used to authenticate that you are authorized to submit website transactions. Note that this value is not the same as the login Id that you use to log in to the Merchant Interface.
    • TransactionKey: The transaction key associated with your payment gateway account. This property is used to authenticate that you are authorized to submit website transactions.
  4. Click Test Database.
  5. Click Privileges -> Add and add the new user (or an existing user) with the appropriate permissions.

Connecting to the CData Cloud Hub

To use the Cloud Hub to integrate Authorize.Net data into your Power Automate tasks, you need a new SQL Server connection:

  1. Log in to Power Automate
  2. Click Data -> Connections -> New connection
  3. Select SQL Server
  4. In the connection wizard:

    • Choose to connect directly
    • Set SQL server name to the address of your Cloud Hub instance (myinstance.cdatacloud.net)
    • Set SQL database name to the name of the virtual Authorize.Net database you created earlier (like authorizedotnetdb)
    • Set the Username and Password and click Create

Integrating Authorize.Net Data into Power Automate Tasks

With the connection to the Cloud Hub configured, you are ready to integrate live Authorize.Net data into your Power Automate tasks.

  1. Log in to Power Automate
  2. Click My flows -> New and choose to create the flow from blank or template
  3. Add (or configure) a SQL Server action (like Get rows) and configure the action to connect to your Cloud Hub connection
  4. Select a Table to work with (from the drop-down menu) and configure any advanced options (like filters, orders, etc)
  5. Configure any actions to follow and test, then save the flow

SQL Access to Authorize.Net Data from Cloud Applications

Now you have a direct connection to live Authorize.Net data from Power Automate tasks. You can create more connections and workflows to drive business — all without replicating Authorize.Net data.
