Integrate DataRobot Data in Your Informatica Cloud Instance

Use the CData JDBC Driver for DataRobot with the Informatica Cloud Secure Agent to access live DataRobot data from Informatica Cloud.

Informatica Cloud allows you to perform extract, transform, and load (ETL) tasks in the cloud. With the Cloud Secure Agent and the CData JDBC Driver for DataRobot, you get live access to DataRobot data, directly within Informatica Cloud. In this article, we will walk through downloading and registering the Cloud Secure Agent, connecting to DataRobot through the JDBC Driver and generating a mapping that can be used in any Informatica Cloud process.

Informatica Cloud Secure Agent

To work with the DataRobot data through the JDBC Driver, install the Cloud Secure Agent.

  1. Navigate to the Administrator page in Informatica Cloud
  2. Select the Runtime Environments tab
  3. Click "Download Secure Agent"
  4. Make note of the Install Token
  5. Run the installer on the client machine and register the Cloud Secure Agent with your username and install token

NOTE: It may take some time for all of the Cloud Secure Agent services to get up and running.

Connecting to the DataRobot JDBC Driver

With the Cloud Secure Agent installed and running, you are ready to connect to DataRobot through the JDBC Driver. Start by clicking the Connections tab and clicking New Connection. Fill in the following properties for the connection:

  • Connection Name: Name your connection (i.e.: CData DataRobot Connection)
  • Type: Select "JDBC_IC (Informatica Cloud)"
  • Runtime Environment: Select the runtime environment where you installed the Cloud Secure Agent
  • JDBC Connection URL: Set this to the JDBC URL for DataRobot. Your URL will look similar to the following:

    jdbc:datarobot:PredictionInstance=myinstance.orm.datarobot.com;DataFile=PATH\TO\input_file.csv;DataRobotKey=123-abc-456-def;User=username;Password=password;

    To connect to DataRobot, the following connection properties are required: User, Password, and PredictionInstance. DataRobotKey may also be required depending on your type of DataRobot predictions instance. If using the Predictions API, DataFile is required. The CSV DataFile should include a header row as the first row of the datafile. APIKey is not required, but can be supplied. If not supplied, the driver will handle obtaining an APIKey.

    User, DataRobotKey, and APIKey are the credentials for the DataRobot account.

    ProjectID, DataFile, and ModelId are the parameters for the project, dataset, and model type.

    Built-In Connection String Designer

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

    java -jar cdata.jdbc.datarobot.jar

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

  • JDBC Jar Directory: Set this to the lib folder in the installation location for the JDBC Driver (on Windows, typically C:\Program Files\CData\CData JDBC Driver for DataRobot\)
  • Driver Class: Set this to cdata.jdbc.datarobot.DataRobotDriver
  • Username: Set this to the username for DataRobot
  • Password: Set this to the password for DataRobot

Create a Mapping for DataRobot Data

With the connection to DataRobot configured, we can now access DataRobot data in any Informatica process. The steps below walk through creating a mapping for DataRobot to another data target.

  1. Navigate to the Data Integration page
  2. Click New.. and select Mapping from the Mappings tab
  3. Click the Source Object and in the Source tab, select the Connection and set the Source Type
  4. Click "Select" to choose the table to map
  5. In the Fields tab, select the fields from the DataRobot table to map
  6. Click the Target object and configure the Target source, table and fields. In the Field Mapping tab, map the source fields to the target fields.

With the mapping configured, you are ready to start integrating live DataRobot data with any of the supported connections in Informatica Cloud. Download a free, 30-day trial of the CData JDBC Driver for DataRobot and start working with your live DataRobot data in Informatica Cloud today.
