DoubleClick JDBC Driver

An easy-to-use database-like interface for Java based applications and reporting tools access to live DoubleClick Campaign Manager data (Ads, Accounts, Creatives, Orders, and more).



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

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

Integrate Google Campaign Manager Data into DBArtisan Projects

Follow the steps below to register Google Campaign 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 Campaign Manager uses the OAuth authentication standard. The data provider facilitates OAuth in various ways as described below. The following OAuth flow requires the authenticating user to interact with DoubleClick Campaign Manager, using the browser. You can also use a service account to authenticate.

    For authentication guides, see the Getting Started section of the data provider help documentation.

    Built-in Connection String Designer

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

    java -jar cdata.jdbc.googlecm.jar

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

    Below is a typical connection string:

    jdbc:googlecm:UserProfileID=MyUserProfileID;InitiateOAuth=GETANDREFRESH
  6. Finish the wizard to connect to Google Campaign Manager data. Google Campaign Manager entities are displayed in the Datasource Explorer.

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