CockroachDB BizTalk Adapter

Powerful BizTalk Adapters that allow you to easily connect BizTalk Server with live CockroachDB data through standard orchestrations.

Use the CockroachDB Adapters to synchronize with CockroachDB NewSQLDB, etc. Perfect for data synchronization, local back-ups, workflow automation, and more!



You can use stored procedures provided by the CData BizTalk Adapter for CockroachDB to automate working with CockroachDB data in BizTalk. Stored procedures implement actions available in the underlying API.

Stored procedures implement CockroachDB actions that cannot be represented as SELECT, INSERT, UPDATE, and DELETE statements. This article shows how to generate a schema for a stored procedure. You can use the schema to execute the stored procedure from a send port.

Add the Adapter to Your Project

Use the Add Adapter wizard to add the adapter to a BizTalk Server project in Visual Studio. The adapter will return metadata about the inputs of the stored procedure and its results. This metadata is needed to create the schema.

  1. Right-click on the project in the Solution Explorer and click Add -> Add Generated Items.
  2. Select Add Adapter Metadata in the resulting dialog box.
  3. In the resulting Add Adapter wizard, select the adapter from the list.
  4. In the Port menu, leave the selection blank. Or, select a receive location or send port that has been configured to use the CockroachDB Adapter.
  5. On the Connection String page, enter authentication credentials and other connection properties if they were not already configured in the send port or the receive location.

    Below is a typical connection string:

    User=root;Password=root;Database=system;Server=localhost;Port=26257

    Set the following to connect to CockroachDB.

    • Server: The host name or IP address of the server.
    • Port: The port number of the CockroachDB server. If not specified, the default port is 26257.
    • Database: The name of the Cockroach database. If not specified, you connect to the user's default database.
    • User: The Cockroach DB user account used to authenticate.
    • Password: The password used to authenticate the user.

Generate the Schema

After you enter connection properties in the Add Adapter wizard, the Schema wizard is displayed.

  1. On the next page, Schema Information, select the Send Port that you have configured to use the CockroachDB Adapter.
  2. If you have configured the CData CockroachDB Adapter in a solicit-response send port, disable the One-Way option.
  3. In the Command Type menu, select Stored Procedure.
  4. Select the stored procedure from the menu and enter the values for the input parameters.
  5. Confirm the settings in the summary displayed by the wizard and click Finish to generate the schema.xsd file.
