Create a virtual MySQL database for Oracle Eloqua data in CData Connect (or Connect Cloud) and work with live Oracle Eloqua data in MySQL Workbench.

MySQL Workbench allows users to administer MySQL environments and gain better visibility into databases. When paired with CData Connect (on-premise or Connect Cloud), you get live access to Oracle Eloqua data as if it were a MySQL database. This article shows how to create a virtual database for Oracle Eloqua in Connect and work with live Oracle Eloqua data in MySQL Workbench.

Create a Virtual MySQL Database for Oracle Eloqua Data

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

  1. Login to Connect and click Databases.
  2. Select "Oracle Eloqua" from Available Data Sources.
  3. Enter the necessary authentication properties to connect to Oracle Eloqua.

    There are two authentication methods available for connecting to Oracle Eloqua: Login and OAuth. The Login method requires you to have the Company, User, and Password of the user.

    If you do not have access to the username and password or do not wish to require them, you can use OAuth authentication. OAuth is better suited for allowing other users to access their own data. Using login credentials is better suited for accessing your own data.

  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 Oracle Eloqua from MySQL Workbench.
