Query Authorize.Net Data as a MySQL Database in Node.js

Execute MySQL queries against Authorize.Net data from Node.js.

You can use the CData Cloud Hub to query Authorize.Net data through a MySQL interface. Follow the procedure below to create a virtual database for Authorize.Net in the Cloud Hub and start querying using Node.js.

The CData Cloud Hub provides a pure MySQL, cloud-to-cloud interface for Authorize.Net, allowing you to easily query live Authorize.Net data in Node.js — without replicating the data to a natively supported database. As you query data in Node.js, the CData Cloud Hub pushes all supported SQL operations (filters, JOINs, etc) directly to Authorize.Net, leveraging server-side processing to quickly return Authorize.Net data.

Create a Virtual MySQL 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.

With the virtual database created, you are ready to connect to Authorize.Net data from any MySQL client.

Query Authorize.Net from Node.js

The following example shows how to define a connection and execute queries to Authorize.Net with the MySQL module. You will need the following information:

  • Host name, or address, and port: The address of your instance of the Cloud Hub (myinstance.cdatacloud.net) and the port (3306)
  • Username and password: The username and password of a user you authorized on the Cloud Hub
  • Database name: The database you configured for Authorize.Net (authorizedotnetdb)

Connect to Authorize.Net data and start executing queries with the code below:

var mysql      = require('mysql');
var fs         = require('fs');
var connection = mysql.createConnection({
  host     : 'myinstance.cdatacloud.net',
  database : 'authorizedotnetdb',
  port	   : '3306',
  user     : 'admin',
  password : 'password',
  ssl      : {
    ca : fs.readFileSync('C:/certs/myCA.pem')
  }
});
connection.connect();
connection.query('SELECT * FROM SettledBatchList', function(err, rows, fields) {
  if (err) throw err;
  console.log(rows);
});

connection.end();
