Create a virtual MySQL database for SAP Concur data in CData Connect (or Connect Server) and work with live SAP Concur data in MySQL Workbench.

MySQL Workbench allows users to administer MySQL environments and gain better visibility into databases. When paired with CData Connect (on-premise or Connect Server), you get live access to SAP Concur data as if it were a MySQL database. This article shows how to create a virtual database for SAP Concur in Connect and work with live SAP Concur data in MySQL Workbench.

Create a Virtual MySQL Database for SAP Concur Data

CData Connect uses a straightforward, point-and-click interface to connect to data sources and generate APIs.

  1. Login to Connect and click Connections.
  2. Select "SAP Concur" from Available Data Sources.
  3. Enter the necessary authentication properties to connect to SAP Concur.

    SAP Concur uses the OAuth 2 authentication standard. You will need to obtain the OAuthClientId and OAuthClientSecret by registering an app with SAP Concur. See the Getting Started section of the help documentation for an authentication guide.

  4. Click Save Changes
  5. Click Privileges -> Add and add the new user (or an existing user) with the appropriate permissions.
