EnterpriseDB ODBC Driver

The EnterpriseDB ODBC Driver is a powerful tool that allows you to connect with live data from EnterpriseDB, directly from any applications that support ODBC connectivity.

Access EnterpriseDB through a standard ODBC Driver interface.



Use the CData ODBC Driver for EnterpriseDB to create datasets from EnterpriseDB data in Domo Workbench and then build visualizations in the Domo service.

Domo helps you manage, analyze, and share data across your entire organization, enabling decision makers to identify and act on strategic opportunities. Domo Workbench provides a secure, client-side solution for uploading your on-premise data to Domo. The CData ODBC Driver for EnterpriseDB links Domo Workbench to operational EnterpriseDB data. You can build datasets from EnterpriseDB data using standard SQL queries in Workbench and then create real-time visualizations of EnterpriseDB data in the Domo service.

The CData ODBC Drivers offer unmatched performance for interacting with live EnterpriseDB data in Domo due to optimized data processing built into the driver. When you issue complex SQL queries from Domo to EnterpriseDB, the driver pushes supported SQL operations, like filters and aggregations, directly to EnterpriseDB and utilizes the embedded SQL Engine to process unsupported operations (often SQL functions and JOIN operations) client-side. With built-in dynamic metadata querying, you can visualize and analyze EnterpriseDB data using native Domo data types.

Connect to EnterpriseDB as an ODBC Data Source

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.

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.

When you configure the DSN, 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.

After creating a DSN, you will need to create a dataset for EnterpriseDB in Domo Workbench using the EnterpriseDB DSN and build a visualization in the Domo service based on the dataset.

Build a Dataset for EnterpriseDB Data

You can follow the steps below to build a dataset based on a table in EnterpriseDB in Domo Workbench using the CData ODBC Driver for EnterpriseDB.

  1. Open Domo Workbench and, if you have not already, add your Domo service server to Workbench. In the Accounts submenu, click Add New, type in the server address (i.e., domain.domo.com) and click through the wizard to authenticate.
  2. In the DataSet Jobs submenu, click Add New.
  3. Name the dataset job (i.e., ODBC EnterpriseDB Orders), select ODBC Connection Provider as the transport method, and click through the wizard.
  4. In the newly created DataSet Job, navigate to Source and click to configure the settings.
  5. Select System DSN for the Connection Type.
  6. Select the previously configured DSN (CData EnterpriseDB Sys) for the System DSN.
  7. Click to validate the configuration.
  8. Below the settings, set the Query to a SQL query: SELECT * FROM Orders NOTE: By connecting to EnterpriseDB data using an ODBC driver, you simply need to know SQL in order to get your data, circumventing the need to know EnterpriseDB-specific APIs or protocols.
  9. Click preview.
  10. Check over the generated schema, add any transformations, then save and run the dataset job.

With the dataset job run, the dataset will be accessible from the Domo service, allowing you to build visualizations, reports, and more based on EnterpriseDB data.

Create Data Visualizations

With the DataSet Job saved and run in Domo Workbench, we are ready to build visualizations of the EnterpriseDB data in the Domo service.

  1. Navigate to the Data Center.
  2. In the data warehouse, select the ODBC data source and drill down to our new dataset.
  3. With the dataset selected, choose to create a visualization.
  4. In the new card:
    • Drag a Dimension to the X Value.
    • Drag a Measure to the Y Value.
    • Choose a Visualization.

With the CData ODBC Driver for EnterpriseDB, you can build custom datasets based on EnterpriseDB data using only SQL in Domo Workbench and then build and share visualizations and reports through the Domo service.
