Query DocuSign Data as a MySQL Database in Node.js

Execute MySQL queries against DocuSign data from Node.js.

You can use the CData Cloud Hub to query DocuSign data through a MySQL interface. Follow the procedure below to create a virtual database for DocuSign in the Cloud Hub and start querying using Node.js.

The CData Cloud Hub provides a pure MySQL, cloud-to-cloud interface for DocuSign, allowing you to easily query live DocuSign data in Node.js — without replicating the data to a natively supported database. As you query data in Node.js, the CData Cloud Hub pushes all supported SQL operations (filters, JOINs, etc) directly to DocuSign, leveraging server-side processing to quickly return DocuSign data.

Create a Virtual MySQL Database for DocuSign Data

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

  1. Login to Cloud Hub and click Databases.
  2. Select "DocuSign" from Available Data Sources.
  3. Enter the necessary authentication properties to connect to DocuSign.

    To connect to DocuSign, set the following connection properties:

    • UseSandbox: indicates whether current user account is sandbox or not (FALSE by default)
    • AccountId (optional): set it in the connection string if you have access to multiple Account Ids

    Authenticating to DocuSign

    DocuSign uses the OAuth authentication standard. To authenticate using OAuth, you will need to create an app to obtain the OAuthClientId, OAuthClientSecret, and CallbackURL connection properties. See the Help documentation more information.

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

With the virtual database created, you are ready to connect to DocuSign data from any MySQL client.

Query DocuSign from Node.js

The following example shows how to define a connection and execute queries to DocuSign with the MySQL module. You will need the following information:

  • Host name, or address, and port: The address of your instance of the Cloud Hub (myinstance.cdatacloud.net) and the port (3306)
  • Username and password: The username and password of a user you authorized on the Cloud Hub
  • Database name: The database you configured for DocuSign (docusigndb)

Connect to DocuSign data and start executing queries with the code below:

var mysql      = require('mysql');
var fs         = require('fs');
var connection = mysql.createConnection({
  host     : 'myinstance.cdatacloud.net',
  database : 'docusigndb',
  port	   : '3306',
  user     : 'admin',
  password : 'password',
  ssl      : {
    ca : fs.readFileSync('C:/certs/myCA.pem')
  }
});
connection.connect();
connection.query('SELECT * FROM Documents', function(err, rows, fields) {
  if (err) throw err;
  console.log(rows);
});

connection.end();
