Connect to Oracle Eloqua Data in DBArtisan

Use wizards in DBArtisan to configure Oracle Eloqua data as a data source.

The CData ODBC Driver for Oracle Eloqua seamlessly integrates Oracle Eloqua data into database management tools like DBArtisan by enabling you to access Oracle Eloqua data as a database. This article shows how to create an data source for Oracle Eloqua in DBArtisan and execute queries. You can then edit data visually and execute standard SQL.

Integrate Oracle Eloqua Data into DBArtisan Projects

If you have not already, first specify connection properties in an ODBC DSN (data source name). This is the last step of the driver installation. You can use the Microsoft ODBC Data Source Administrator to create and configure ODBC DSNs.

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.

You can then follow the steps below to register Oracle Eloqua data as a database instance in your project:

  1. In DBArtisan, click Data Source -> Register Datasource.
  2. Select Generic ODBC.
  3. Enter a name for the data source and select the DSN.
  4. Finish the wizard to connect to Oracle Eloqua data. Oracle Eloqua entities are displayed in the Datasource Explorer.

You can now work with Oracle Eloqua data as you work with any other database. See the driver help documentation for more information on the queries supported by the Oracle Eloqua API.
