Simply use the partner Connect Cloud Connector to generate a query (or write your own). Using optimized data processing out of the box, CData Connect Cloud pushes all supported query operations (filters, JOINs, etc) directly to EnterpriseDB, leveraging server-side processing to quickly return EnterpriseDB data.

This setup requires a CData Connect Cloud instance and the CData Connect Cloud Connector for Google Sheets. To get started, get a free trial of Connect Cloud and download the free Connect Cloud Google Sheets Connector.


Create a Virtual MySQL Database for EnterpriseDB Data

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

  1. Log into Connect Cloud and click Databases.
  2. Select "EnterpriseDB" from Available Data Sources.
  3. Enter the necessary authentication properties to connect to EnterpriseDB.

    The following connection properties are required in order to connect to data.

    • Server: The host name or IP of the server hosting the EnterpriseDB database.
    • Port: The port of the server hosting the EnterpriseDB database.

    You can also optionally set the following:

    • Database: The default database to connect to when connecting to the EnterpriseDB Server. If this is not set, the user's default database will be used.

    Connect Using Standard Authentication

    To authenticate using standard authentication, set the following:

    • User: The user which will be used to authenticate with the EnterpriseDB server.
    • Password: The password which will be used to authenticate with the EnterpriseDB server.

    Connect Using SSL Authentication

    You can leverage SSL authentication to connect to EnterpriseDB data via a secure session. Configure the following connection properties to connect to data:

    • SSLClientCert: Set this to the name of the certificate store for the client certificate. Used in the case of 2-way SSL, where truststore and keystore are kept on both the client and server machines.
    • SSLClientCertPassword: If a client certificate store is password-protected, set this value to the store's password.
    • SSLClientCertSubject: The subject of the TLS/SSL client certificate. Used to locate the certificate in the store.
    • SSLClientCertType: The certificate type of the client store.
    • SSLServerCert: The certificate to be accepted from the server.
  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 EnterpriseDB data from Google Sheets.
