Connect to AWS Management Data in CloverDX (formerly CloverETL)

Transfer AWS Management data using the visual workflow in the CloverDX data integration tool.

The CData JDBC Driver for AWS Management enables you to use the data transformation components in CloverDX (formerly CloverETL) to work with AWS Management as sources and destinations. In this article, you will use the JDBC Driver for AWS Management to set up a simple transfer into a flat file.

Connect to AWS Management as a JDBC Data Source

  1. Create the connection to AWS Management data. In a new CloverDX graph, right-click the Connections node in the Outline pane and click Connections -> Create Connection. The Database Connection wizard is displayed.
  2. Click the plus icon to load a driver from a JAR. Browse to the lib subfolder of the installation directory and select the cdata.jdbc.awsdatamanagement.jar file.
  3. Enter the JDBC URL.

    To authorize AWSDataManagement requests, provide the credentials for an administrator account or for an IAM user with custom permissions:

    1. Set AccessKey to the access key Id.
    2. Set SecretKey to the secret access key.
    3. Set Region to the region where your AWSDataManagement data is hosted.

    Note: Though you can connect as the AWS account administrator, it is recommended to use IAM user credentials to access AWS services.

    Built-in Connection String Designer

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

    java -jar cdata.jdbc.awsdatamanagement.jar

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

    A typical JDBC URL is below:

    jdbc:awsdatamanagement:AccessKey=myAccessKey;Account=myAccountName;Region=us-east-1;

Query AWS Management Data with the DBInputTable Component

  1. Drag a DBInputTable from the Readers selection of the Palette onto the job flow and double-click it to open the configuration editor.
  2. In the DB connection property, select the AWS Management JDBC data source from the drop-down menu.
  3. Enter the SQL query. For example: SELECT PartitionKey, Name FROM NorthwingProducts

Write the Output of the Query to a UniversalDataWriter

  1. Drag a UniversalDataWriter from the Writers selection onto the jobflow.
  2. Double-click the UniversalDataWriter to open the configuration editor and add a file URL.
  3. Right-click the DBInputTable and then click Extract Metadata.
  4. Connect the output port of the DBInputTable to the UniversalDataWriter.
  5. In the resulting Select Metadata menu for the UniversalDataWriter, choose the NorthwingProducts table. (You can also open this menu by right-clicking the input port for the UniversalDataWriter.)
  6. Click Run to write to the file.
