Azure Analysis Services JDBC Driver

Rapidly create and deploy powerful Java applications that integrate with Azure Analysis Services.



Use wizards in DBArtisan to create a JDBC data source for Azure Analysis Services.

The CData JDBC Driver for Azure Analysis Services seamlessly integrates Azure Analysis Services data into database management tools like DBArtisan by enabling you to access Azure Analysis Services data as a database. This article shows how to create a JDBC source for Azure Analysis Services in DBArtisan. You can then edit data visually and execute standard SQL.

Integrate Azure Analysis Services Data into DBArtisan Projects

Follow the steps below to register Azure Analysis Services data as a database instance in your project:

  1. In DBArtisan, click Data Source -> Register Datasource.
  2. Select Generic JDBC.
  3. Click Manage.
  4. In the resulting dialog, click New. Enter a name for the driver and click Add. In the resulting dialog, navigate to the driver JAR. The driver JAR is located in the lib subfolder of the installation directory.
  5. In the Connection URL box, enter credentials and other required connection properties in the JDBC URL.

    To connect to Azure Analysis Services, set the Url property to a valid server, for instance, asazure://southcentralus.asazure.windows.net/server, in addition to authenticating. Optionally, set Database to distinguish which Azure database on the server to connect to.

    Azure Analysis Services uses the OAuth authentication standard. OAuth requires the authenticating user to interact with Azure Analysis Services using the browser. You can connect without setting any connection properties for your user credentials. See the Help documentation for more information.

    Built-in Connection String Designer

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

    java -jar cdata.jdbc.aas.jar

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

    Below is a typical connection string:

    jdbc:aas:URL=asazure://REGION.asazure.windows.net/server;InitiateOAuth=GETANDREFRESH
  6. Finish the wizard to connect to Azure Analysis Services data. Azure Analysis Services entities are displayed in the Datasource Explorer.

You can now work with Azure Analysis Services data as you work with any other database. See the driver help documentation for more information on the queries supported by the Azure Analysis Services API.
