CData Connect



Execute MySQL queries against Oracle Eloqua data from Node.js.

You can use CData Connect Cloud to query Oracle Eloqua data through a MySQL interface. Follow the procedure below to create a virtual database for Oracle Eloqua in Connect Cloud and start querying using Node.js.

CData Connect Cloud provides a pure MySQL, cloud-to-cloud interface for Oracle Eloqua, allowing you to easily query live Oracle Eloqua data in Node.js — without replicating the data to a natively supported database. As you query data in Node.js, CData Connect Cloud pushes all supported SQL operations (filters, JOINs, etc) directly to Oracle Eloqua, leveraging server-side processing to quickly return Oracle Eloqua data.

Create a Virtual MySQL Database for Oracle Eloqua Data

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

  1. Login to Connect Cloud 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 data from any MySQL client.

Query Oracle Eloqua from Node.js

The following example shows how to define a connection and execute queries to Oracle Eloqua with the MySQL module. You will need the following information:

  • Host name, or address, and port: The address of your instance of the Connect Cloud (myinstance.cdatacloud.net) and the port (3306)
  • Username and password: The username and password of a user you authorized on Connect Cloud
  • Database name: The database you configured for Oracle Eloqua (eloquadb)

Connect to Oracle Eloqua data and start executing queries with the code below:

var mysql      = require('mysql');
var fs         = require('fs');
var connection = mysql.createConnection({
  host     : 'myinstance.cdatacloud.net',
  database : 'eloquadb',
  port	   : '3306',
  user     : 'admin',
  password : 'password',
  ssl      : {
    ca : fs.readFileSync('C:/certs/myCA.pem')
  }
});
connection.connect();
connection.query('SELECT * FROM Campaign', function(err, rows, fields) {
  if (err) throw err;
  console.log(rows);
});

connection.end();
