Feed Authorize.Net Data into FineReport

How to set Authorize.Net data as a JDBC data source in FineReport.

The CData JDBC Driver for Authorize.Net fully implements the JDBC standard and can provide Authorize.Net data connectivity to a wide variety of BI, reporting, and ETL tools and custom applications. In this article, we explain how to set Authorize.Net data as JDBC data source in FineReport and view Authorize.Net data as a table in the Report Designer.

Set Up a JDBC Data Source of Authorize.Net Data

Follow the instruction below to set Authorize.Net data as a FineReport database connection.

  1. Copy the cdata.jdbc.authorizenet.jar file from the lib folder in the CData JDBC Driver for Authorize.Net installation directory to the lib folder of the FineReport installation directory. You will need to copy the cdata.jdbc.authorizenet.lic file as well.
  2. From the Server tab, select Define Data Connection, click to add a new connection, and click JDBC.

Next we will set up the data connection definition in the window.

  1. Database: Others
  2. JDBC Driver: cdata.jdbc.authorizenet.AuthorizeNet Driver
  3. URL: A standard JDBC connection string using semicolon-separated 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.

    When you configure the JDBC URL, you may also want to set the Max Rows connection property. This will limit the number of rows returned, which is especially helpful for improving performance when designing reports and visualizations.

    A typical JDBC URL is below:

    jdbc:authorizenet:LoginId=MyLoginId;TransactionKey=MyTransactionKey;
  4. Click Connection pool attributes and set Test before getting connections to No.

Click Test connection to ensure you have configured the connection properly. With the connection to Authorize.Net set up, you can use it as FineReport data source.

Select Authorize.Net Data in the Report Designer.

  1. Click to add a new template data set and select DB query to open the database query window.
  2. Choose the JDBC connection that you created from the dropdown list.
  3. The Authorize.Net entities will appear as tables on the left pane.
  4. Write a SELECT statement for the Authorize.Net data tables and columns that you want to load.
  5. Click preview and data is shown as table.

With these simple steps, Authorize.Net can be used as a JDBC data source in FineReport.
