Build the ARP Connector

To use the CData JDBC Driver in Dremio, you need to build an Advanced Relation Pushdown (ARP) Connector. You can view the source code for the Connector on GitHub or download the ZIP file ( directly. Once you copy or extract the files, run the following command from the root directory of the connector (the directory containing the pom.xml file) to build the connector.

mvn clean install

Once the JAR file for the connector is built (in the target directory), you are ready to copy the ARP connector and JDBC Driver to your Dremio instance.

Installing the Connector and JDBC Driver

Install the ARP Connector to %DREMIO_HOME%/jars/ and the JDBC Driver for eBay Analytics to %DREMIO_HOME%/jars/3rdparty. You can use commands similar to the following:

ARP Connector

docker cp PATH\TO\dremio-ebayanalytics-plugin-20.0.0.jar dremio_image_name:/opt/dremio/jars/

JDBC Driver for eBay Analytics

docker cp PATH\TO\cdata.jdbc.ebayanalytics.jar dremio_image_name:/opt/dremio/jars/3rdparty/

Connecting to eBay Analytics

eBay Analytics will now appear as an External Source option in Dremio. The ARP Connector built uses a JDBC URL to connect to eBay Analytics data. The JDBC Driver has a built-in connection string designer that you can use (see below).

Built-in Connection String Designer

For assistance in constructing the JDBC URL, use the connection string designer built into the eBay Analytics JDBC Driver. Double-click the JAR file or execute the jar file from the command line.

java -jar cdata.jdbc.ebayanalytics.jar

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

You can authenticate to eBay Analytics only via the OAuth 2 authentication method. The eBay Analytics API requires an access token created with the authorization code grant flow to authorize the requests.

You can follow the guide in the Help documentation for a step by step guide on how to authenticate using the OAuth 2 protocol.
