Manage Google Ad Manager Data in DBArtisan as a JDBC Source

Use wizards in DBArtisan to create a JDBC data source for Google Ad Manager.

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

Integrate Google Ad Manager Data into DBArtisan Projects

Follow the steps below to register Google Ad Manager 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.

    Google Ads Manager uses the OAuth authentication standard. You can authorize the data provider to access Google Ads Manager as an individual user or with a service account that you create in the Google APIs Console. See the Getting Started section in the data provider help documentation for an authentication guide.

    Built-in Connection String Designer

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

    java -jar cdata.jdbc.googleadsmanager.jar

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

    Below is a typical connection string:

    jdbc:googleadsmanager:InitiateOAuth=GETANDREFRESH
  6. Finish the wizard to connect to Google Ad Manager data. Google Ad Manager entities are displayed in the Datasource Explorer.

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