Connect to Google Campaign Manager Data in HULFT Integrate

Connect to Google Campaign Manager as a JDBC data source in HULFT Integrate

HULFT Integrate is a modern data integration platform that provides a drag-and-drop user interface to create cooperation flows, data conversion, and processing so that complex data connections are easier than ever to execute. When paired with the CData JDBC Driver for Google Campaign Manager, HULFT Integrate can work with live Google Campaign Manager data. This article walks through connecting to Google Campaign Manager and moving the data into a CSV file.

With built-in optimized data processing, the CData JDBC Driver offers unmatched performance for interacting with live Google Campaign Manager data. When you issue complex SQL queries to Google Campaign Manager, the driver pushes supported SQL operations, like filters and aggregations, directly to Google Campaign Manager and utilizes the embedded SQL engine to process unsupported operations client-side (often SQL functions and JOIN operations). Its built-in dynamic metadata querying allows you to work with and analyze Google Campaign Manager data using native data types.

Enable Access to Google Campaign Manager

To enable access to Google Campaign Manager data from HULFT Integrate projects:

  1. Copy the CData JDBC Driver JAR file (and license file if it exists), cdata.jdbc.googlecm.jar (and cdata.jdbc.googlecm.lic), to the jdbc_adapter subfolder for the Integrate Server
  2. Restart the HULFT Integrate Server and launch HULFT Integrate Studio

Build a Project with Access to Google Campaign Manager Data

Once you copy the JAR files, you can create a project with access to Google Campaign Manager data. Start by opening Integrate Studio and creating a new project.

  1. Name the project
  2. Ensure the "Create script" checkbox is checked
  3. Click Next
  4. Name the script (e.g.: GoogleCMtoCSV)

Once you create the project, add components to the script to copy Google Campaign Manager data to a CSV file.

Configure an Execute Select SQL Component

Drag an "Execute Select SQL" component from the Tool Palette (Database -> JDBC) into the Script workspace.

  1. In the "Required settings" tab for the Destination, click "Add" to create a new connection for Google Campaign Manager. Set the following properties:
    • Name: Google Campaign Manager Connection Settings
    • Driver class name: cdata.jdbc.googlecm.GoogleCMDriver
    • URL: jdbc:googlecm:UserProfileID=MyUserProfileID;InitiateOAuth=GETANDREFRESH

      Built-in Connection String Designer

      For assistance 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.

      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.

  2. Write your SQL statement. For example:
    SELECT Clicks, Device FROM CampaignPerformance
  3. Click "Extraction test" to ensure the connection and query are configured properly
  4. Click "Execute SQL statement and set output schema"
  5. Click "Finish"

Configure a Write CSV File Component

Drag a "Write CSV File" component from the Tool Palette (File -> CSV) onto the workspace.

  1. Set a file to write the query results to (e.g. CampaignPerformance.csv)
  2. Set "Input data" to the "Select SQL" component
  3. Add columns for each field selected in the SQL query
  4. In the "Write settings" tab, check the checkbox to "Insert column names into first row"
  5. Click "Finish"

Map Google Campaign Manager Fields to the CSV Columns

Map each column from the "Select" component to the corresponding column for the "CSV" component.

Finish the Script

Drag the "Start" component onto the "Select" component and the "CSV" component onto the "End" component. Build the script and run the script to move Google Campaign Manager data into a CSV file.
