Autify JDBC Driver

Rapidly create and deploy powerful Java applications that integrate with Autify test senarios and results.



Integrate Autify data with standard components and data source configuration wizards in RapidMiner Studio.

This article shows how you can easily integrate the CData JDBC driver for Autify into your processes in RapidMiner. This article uses the CData JDBC Driver for Autify to transfer Autify data to a process in RapidMiner.

Connect to Autify in RapidMiner as a JDBC Data Source

You can follow the procedure below to establish a JDBC connection to Autify:

  1. Add a new database driver for Autify: Click Connections -> Manage Database Drivers.
  2. In the resulting wizard, click the Add button and enter a name for the connection.
  3. Enter the prefix for the JDBC URL: jdbc:autify:
  4. Enter the path to the cdata.jdbc.autify.jar file, located in the lib subfolder of the installation directory.
  5. Enter the driver class: cdata.jdbc.autify.AutifyDriver
  6. Create a new Autify connection: Click Connections -> Manage Database Connections.
  7. Enter a name for your connection.
  8. For Database System, select the Autify driver you configured previously.
  9. Enter your connection string in the Host box.

    In order to authenticate, you must specify the Autify API Key and Project ID:

    • ApiKey: Log into your account and go to Configurations/Personal Settings and create "New personal access token".
    • ProjectId: ID of the project in your account URL. For ex: If URL is "https://app.autify.com/projects/343/scenarios", 343 is your ProjectId.

    Built-in Connection String Designer

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

    java -jar cdata.jdbc.autify.jar

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

    A typical connection string is below:

    ProjectId=255;ApiKey=M9e88D3s31b35347EgNVa;
  10. Enter your username and password if necessary.

You can now use your Autify connection with the various RapidMiner operators in your process. To retrieve Autify data, drag the Retrieve operator from the Operators view. With the Retrieve operator selected, you can then define which table to retrieve in the Parameters view by clicking the folder icon next to the "repository entry." In the resulting Repository Browser, you can expand your connection node to select the desired example set.

Finally, wire the output to the Retrieve process to a result, and run the process to see the Autify data.
