Access Live Authorize.Net Data in TIBCO Data Virtualization

Use the CData TIBCO DV Adapter for Authorize.Net to create a Authorize.Net data source in TIBCO Data Virtualization Studio and gain access to live Authorize.Net data from your TDV Server.

TIBCO Data Virtualization (TDV) is an enterprise data virtualization solution that orchestrates access to multiple and varied data sources. When paired with the CData TIBCO DV Adapter for Authorize.Net, you get federated access to live Authorize.Net data directly within TIBCO Data Virtualization. This article walks through deploying an adapter and creating a new data source based on Authorize.Net.

With built-in optimized data processing, the CData TIBCO DV Adapter offers unmatched performance for interacting with live Authorize.Net data. When you issue complex SQL queries to Authorize.Net, the adapter pushes supported SQL operations, like filters and aggregations, directly to Authorize.Net. Its built-in dynamic metadata querying allows you to work with and analyze Authorize.Net data using native data types.

Deploy the Authorize.Net TIBCO DV Adapter

  1. In a console, navigate to the bin folder in the TDV Server installation directory. If there is a current version of the adapter installed, you will need to undeploy it.

    .\server_util.bat -server localhost -user admin -password ******** -undeploy -version 1 -name AuthorizeNet
    
  2. Extract the CData TIBCO DV Adapter to a local folder and deploy the JAR file (tdv.authorizenet.jar) to the server from the extract location.

    .\server_util.bat -server localhost -user admin -password ******** -deploy -package /PATH/TO/tdv.authorizenet.jar
    

You may need to restart the server to ensure the new JAR file is loaded properly, which can be accomplished by running the composite.bat script located at: C:\Program Files\TIBCO\TDV Server <version>\bin. Note that reauthenticating to the TDV Studio is required after restarting the server.

Sample Restart Call

.\composite.bat monitor restart
Once you deploy the adapter, you can create a new data source in TDV Studio for Authorize.Net.

Create a Authorize.Net Data Source in TDV Studio

With the CData TIBCO DV Adapter for Authorize.Net, you can easily create a data source for Authorize.Net and introspect the data source to add resources to TDV.

Create the Data Source

  1. Right-click on the folder you wish to add the data source to and select New -> New Data Source.
  2. Scroll until you find the adapter (e.g. Authorize.Net) and click Next.
  3. Name the data source (e.g. CData Authorize.Net Source).
  4. Fill in the required 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.
  5. Click Create & Close.

Introspect the Data Source

Once the data source is created, you can introspect the data source by right-clicking and selecting Open. In the dashboard, click Add/Remove Resources and select the Tables, Views, and Stored Procedures to include as part of the data source. Click Next and Finish to add the selected Authorize.Net tables, views, and stored procedures as resources.

After creating and introspecting the data source, you are ready to work with Authorize.Net data in TIBCO Data Virtualization just like you would any other relational data source. You can create views, query using SQL, publish the data source, and more.
