Analyze Authorize.Net Data in Infragistics Reveal

Use the CData Cloud Hub to create an OData API on top of Authorize.Net data and visualize live Authorize.Net data in Ingragistics Reveal.

Reveal is a data visualization solution provided by Infragistics and can be paired with the CData Cloud Hub and Authorize.Net Connector to build dynamic dashboards from live Authorize.Net data. The CData Cloud Hub creates a virtual database for Authorize.Net and can be used to generate an OData API (natively consumable in Reveal) for Authorize.Net. In this article, we walk through connecting to Authorize.Net in the Cloud Hub and connecting to the Cloud Hub from Infragistics Reveal to create a simple dashboard.

Add a Cloud Hub User

Create a User to connect to Authorize.Net from Reveal through Cloud Hub.

  1. Click Users -> Add
  2. Configure a User
  3. Click Save Changes and make note of the Authtoken for the new user

Connect to Authorize.Net from Cloud Hub

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

  1. Open 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 (SELECT is all that is required for Reveal).

Add Authorize.Net OData Endpoints in Cloud Hub

After connecting to Authorize.Net, create OData Endpoint for the desired table(s).

  1. Click OData -> Tables -> Add Tables
  2. Select the Authorize.Net database
  3. Select the table(s) you wish to work with and click Next
  4. (Optional) Edit the resource to select specific fields and more
  5. Save the settings

(Optional) Configure Cross-Origin Resource Sharing (CORS)

When accessing and connecting to multiple different domains from an application such as Ajax, there is a possibility of violating the limitations of cross-site scripting. In that case, configure the CORS settings in OData -> Settings.

  • Enable cross-origin resource sharing (CORS): ON
  • Allow all domains without '*': ON
  • Access-Control-Allow-Methods: GET, PUT, POST, OPTIONS
  • Access-Control-Allow-Headers: Authorization

Save the changes to the settings.

Create a Dashboard in Reveal

With the Cloud Hub configured, we can visualize Authorize.Net data in Reveal.

  1. Log into Reveal and click Dashboards -> New
  2. Click Data Source -> OData Feed
  3. Specify the Cloud Hub API endpoint URL (found in API -> Discovery -> Base URL), for example: https://www.cdatacloud.com/myinstance/api.rsc
  4. Select Generic Credentials and specify the Cloud Hub username and authentication token
  5. Select the entity you wish to visualize
  6. Select fields and choose a chart type
