Replicate Multiple Oracle Eloqua Accounts

Replicate multiple Oracle Eloqua accounts to one or many databases.

CData Sync for Oracle Eloqua is a stand-alone application that provides solutions for a variety of replication scenarios such as replicating sandbox and production instances into your database. Both Sync for Windows and Sync for Java include a command-line interface (CLI) that makes it easy to manage multiple Oracle Eloqua connections. In this article we show how to use the CLI to replicate multiple Oracle Eloqua accounts.

Configure Oracle Eloqua Connections

You can save connection and email notification settings in an XML configuration file. To replicate multiple Oracle Eloqua accounts, use multiple configuration files. Below is an example configuration to replicate Oracle Eloqua to SQLite:

Windows

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8" ?> <CDataSync> <DatabaseType>SQLite</DatabaseType> <DatabaseProvider>System.Data.SQLite</DatabaseProvider> <ConnectionString>User=user;Password=password;Company=CData;</ConnectionString> <ReplicateAll>False</ReplicateAll> <NotificationUserName></NotificationUserName> <DatabaseConnectionString>Data Source=C:\my.db</DatabaseConnectionString> <TaskSchedulerStartTime>09:51</TaskSchedulerStartTime> <TaskSchedulerInterval>Never</TaskSchedulerInterval> </CDataSync>

Java

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8" ?> <CDataSync> <DatabaseType>SQLite</DatabaseType> <DatabaseProvider>org.sqlite.JDBC</DatabaseProvider> <ConnectionString>User=user;Password=password;Company=CData;</ConnectionString> <ReplicateAll>False</ReplicateAll> <NotificationUserName></NotificationUserName> <DatabaseConnectionString>Data Source=C:\my.db</DatabaseConnectionString> </CDataSync>

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.

Configure Queries for Each Oracle Eloqua Instance

Sync enables you to control replication with standard SQL. The REPLICATE statement is a high-level command that caches and maintains a table in your database. You can define any SELECT query supported by the Oracle Eloqua API. The statement below caches and incrementally updates a table of Oracle Eloqua data:

REPLICATE Campaign;

You can specify a file containing the replication queries you want to use to update a particular database. Separate replication statements with semicolons. The following options are useful if you are replicating multiple Oracle Eloqua accounts into the same database:

You can use a different table prefix in the REPLICATE SELECT statement:

REPLICATE PROD_Campaign SELECT * FROM Campaign

Alternatively, you can use a different schema:

REPLICATE PROD.Campaign SELECT * FROM Campaign

Run Sync

After you have configured the connection strings and replication queries, you can run Sync with the following command-line options:

Windows

OracleEloquaSync.exe -g MyProductionOracleEloquaConfig.xml -f MyProductionOracleEloquaSync.sql

Java

java -Xbootclasspath/p:c:\sqlitejdbc.jar -jar OracleEloquaSync.jar -g MyProductionOracleEloquaConfig.xml -f MyProductionOracleEloquaSync.sql
