Create an ElastiCube in Sisense app with access to Oracle Eloqua data.

Sisense lets you join, analyze, and picture data to make more intelligent business decisions and craft effective strategies. The CData JDBC Driver for Oracle Eloqua makes it easy to integrate with Oracle Eloqua data in Sisense. This article shows how to create an ElastiCube that connects to Oracle Eloqua data and use the ElastiCube to visualize Oracle Eloqua data in Sisense.

Configure the Connection to Oracle Eloqua

Before creating the ElastiCube, note the installation location for the JAR file for the JDBC Driver (typically C:\Program Files\CData\CData JDBC Driver for Oracle Eloqua 20XX\lib) or copy the jar file (cdata.jdbc.oracleeloqua.OracleEloqua.jar) to a new folder in the Sisense JDBC driver directory (typically C:\ProgramData\Sisense\DataConnectors\jdbcdrivers).

  1. In the Data page of the Sisense application, create a new ElastiCube (or open an existing one).
  2. In the Model Editor, click "+ Data" to open the Add Data dialog box.
  3. Click Generic JDBC to open the JDBC settings.
  4. Set the connection string property to the JDBC URL for Oracle Eloqua, adding required properties.

    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.

    Built-in Connection String Designer

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

    java -jar cdata.jdbc.oracleeloqua.jar

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

    When you configure the JDBC URL, you may also want to set the Max Rows connection property. This will limit the number of rows returned, which is especially helpful for improving performance when designing reports and visualizations.

    A typical example follows:

    jdbc:oracleeloqua:User=user;Password=password;Company=CData;
  5. Set the JDBC JARs folder property to the location of the CData JDBC Driver JAR file (see above).
  6. Set the driver's class name to the class name for the JDBC Driver: cdata.jdbc.oracleeloqua.OracleEloquaDriver
  7. Leave the username and password properties blank.
  8. Click Next.

Add Oracle Eloqua Data to an ElastiCube

Once you are connected to Oracle Eloqua, you can add tables and views to your ElastiCubes.

  1. From the Tables list, select the tables and/or views you wish to work with.
  2. (Optional) Click "+" to customize the data you want to import with SQL.
  3. Click Done.
  4. Click Build to build the ElastiCube for analytics.

Visualize Oracle Eloqua Data

With Oracle Eloqua tables added to your ElastiCube, you can perform analytics on your Oracle Eloqua data.

  1. Navigate to the Analytics page of the Sisense application
  2. Select a Dashboard (or create a new one)
  3. Select your Data Source and click Create
  4. Click "+ Select Data" and choose fields to add to your visualization.

With the CData JDBC Driver for Oracle Eloqua, you can access Oracle Eloqua data right in Sisense for powerful visualization and analytics. Download a free, 30-day trial and start working with Oracle Eloqua data in Sisense today!
