Visualize Authorize.Net Data in Sisense

Create an ElastiCube in Sisense app with access to Authorize.Net data.

Sisense lets you join, analyze, and picture data to make more intelligent business decisions and craft effective strategies. The CData JDBC Driver for Authorize.Net makes it easy to integrate with Authorize.Net data in Sisense. This article shows how to create an ElastiCube that connects to Authorize.Net data and use the ElastiCube to visualize Authorize.Net data in Sisense.

Configure the Connection to Authorize.Net

Before creating the ElastiCube, note the installation location for the JAR file for the JDBC Driver (typically C:\Program Files\CDatat\CData JDBC Driver for Authorize.Net\lib) or copy the jar file (cdata.jdbc.authorizenet.AuthorizeNet.jar) to a new folder in the Sisense JDBC driver directory (typically C:\ProgramData\Sisense\DataConnectors\jdbcdrivers).

  1. In the Data page of the Sisense application, create a new ElastiCube (or open an existing one).
  2. In the Model Editor, click "+ Data" to open the Add Data dialog box.
  3. Click Generic JDBC to open the JDBC settings.
  4. Set the connection string property to the JDBC URL for Authorize.Net, adding required 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 example follows:

    jdbc:authorizenet:LoginId=MyLoginId;TransactionKey=MyTransactionKey;
  5. Set the JDBC JARs folder property to the location of the CData JDBC Driver JAR file (see above).
  6. Set the driver's class name to the class name for the JDBC Driver: cdata.jdbc.authorizenet.AuthorizeNetDriver
  7. Leave the username and password properties blank.
  8. Click Next.

Add Authorize.Net Data to an ElastiCube

Once you are connected to Authorize.Net, you can add views to your ElastiCubes.

  1. From the Tables list, select the tables and/or views you wish to work with.
  2. (Optional) Click "+" to customize the data you want to import with SQL.
  3. Click Done.
  4. Click Build to build the ElastiCube for analytics.

Visualize Authorize.Net Data

With Authorize.Net tables added to your ElastiCube, you can perform analytics on your Authorize.Net data.

  1. Navigate to the Analytics page of the Sisense application
  2. Select a Dashboard (or create a new one)
  3. Select your Data Source and click Create
  4. Click "+ Select Data" and choose fields to add to your visualization.

With the CData JDBC Driver for Authorize.Net, you can access Authorize.Net data right in Sisense for powerful visualization and analytics. Download a free, 30-day trial and start working with Authorize.Net data in Sisense today!
