Connect to Authorize.Net Data in Aqua Data Studio

Access Authorize.Net data from tools in Aqua Data Studio such as the Visual Query Builder and the Table Data Editor.

The CData JDBC Driver for Authorize.Net integrates Authorize.Net data with wizards and analytics in IDEs like Aqua Data Studio. This article shows how to connect to Authorize.Net data through the connection manager and execute queries.

Create a JDBC Data Source

You can use the connection manager to define connection properties and save them in a new JDBC data source. The Authorize.Net data source can then be accessed from Aqua Data Studio tools.

  1. In Aqua Data Studio, select Register Server from the Servers menu.
  2. In the Register Server form, select the 'Generic - JDBC' connection.
  3. Enter the following JDBC connection properties:
    • Name: Enter a name for the data source; for example, Authorize.Net.
    • Driver Location: Click the Browse button and select the cdata.jdbc.authorizenet.jar file, located in the lib subfolder of the installation directory.
    • Driver: Enter the Driver's class name, cdata.jdbc.authorizenet.AuthorizeNetDriver.
    • URL: Enter the JDBC URL, which starts with jdbc:authorizenet: and is followed by a semicolon-separated list of connection properties.

      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.

      Built-in Connection String Designer

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

      java -jar cdata.jdbc.authorizenet.jar

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

      A typical JDBC URL is below:

      jdbc:authorizenet:LoginId=MyLoginId;TransactionKey=MyTransactionKey;

Query Authorize.Net Data

You can now query the tables exposed.
