Integrate EDGAR Online Data in Your Informatica Cloud Instance

Use the CData JDBC Driver for EDGAR Online with the Informatica Cloud Secure Agent to access live EDGAR Online data from Informatica Cloud.

Informatica Cloud allows you to perform extract, transform, and load (ETL) tasks in the cloud. With the Cloud Secure Agent and the CData JDBC Driver for EDGAR Online, you get live access to EDGAR Online data, directly within Informatica Cloud. In this article, we will walk through downloading and registering the Cloud Secure Agent, connecting to EDGAR Online through the JDBC Driver and generating a mapping that can be used in any Informatica Cloud process.

Informatica Cloud Secure Agent

To work with the EDGAR Online data through the JDBC Driver, install the Cloud Secure Agent.

  1. Navigate to the Administrator page in Informatica Cloud
  2. Select the Runtime Environments tab
  3. Click "Download Secure Agent"
  4. Make note of the Install Token
  5. Run the installer on the client machine and register the Cloud Secure Agent with your username and install token

NOTE: It may take some time for all of the Cloud Secure Agent services to get up and running.

Connecting to the EDGAR Online JDBC Driver

With the Cloud Secure Agent installed and running, you are ready to connect to EDGAR Online through the JDBC Driver. Start by clicking the Connections tab and clicking New Connection. Fill in the following properties for the connection:

  • Connection Name: Name your connection (i.e.: CData EDGAR Online Connection)
  • Type: Select "JDBC_IC (Informatica Cloud)"
  • Runtime Environment: Select the runtime environment where you installed the Cloud Secure Agent
  • JDBC Connection URL: Set this to the JDBC URL for EDGAR Online. Your URL will look similar to the following:

    jdbc:edgaronline:AppKey=20dd8ce9904d422ed89ebde1ad40d

    1. Navigate to https://developer.edgar-online.com/ and create an account.
    2. Register a new application and retrieve the AppKey. You should select one of the available Web APIs this application will use like HackPack, Insider Trades or Institutional Ownership.
      Note: HackPack is the most important Web API that an application can use since it supports a large number of endpoints. If you are getting the "Access Denied" error you must create a new app and select the correct Web API which supports the resource you are querying.
    3. After successfully creating a new app, you can access your keys through your "my account" area. Set the AppKey connection property value equal to the Key of your application.

    Built-In Connection String Designer

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

    java -jar cdata.jdbc.edgaronline.jar

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

  • JDBC Jar Directory: Set this to the lib folder in the installation location for the JDBC Driver (on Windows, typically C:\Program Files\CData\CData JDBC Driver for EDGAR Online\)
  • Driver Class: Set this to cdata.jdbc.edgaronline.EdgarOnlineDriver
  • Username: Set this to a placeholder value (since EDGAR Online does not require a username)
  • Password: Set this to a placeholder value (since EDGAR Online does not require a password)

Create a Mapping for EDGAR Online Data

With the connection to EDGAR Online configured, we can now access EDGAR Online data in any Informatica process. The steps below walk through creating a mapping for EDGAR Online to another data target.

  1. Navigate to the Data Integration page
  2. Click New.. and select Mapping from the Mappings tab
  3. Click the Source Object and in the Source tab, select the Connection and set the Source Type
  4. Click "Select" to choose the table to map
  5. In the Fields tab, select the fields from the EDGAR Online table to map
  6. Click the Target object and configure the Target source, table and fields. In the Field Mapping tab, map the source fields to the target fields.

With the mapping configured, you are ready to start integrating live EDGAR Online data with any of the supported connections in Informatica Cloud. Download a free, 30-day trial of the CData JDBC Driver for EDGAR Online and start working with your live EDGAR Online data in Informatica Cloud today.
