CData Sync



Replicate multiple EnterpriseDB accounts to one or many databases.

CData Sync is a stand-alone application that provides solutions for a variety of replication scenarios such as replicating sandbox and production instances into your database. CData Sync includes a web-based interface that makes it easy to manage multiple EnterpriseDB connections. In this article we show how to use the web app to replicate multiple EnterpriseDB accounts to a single database.

Configure the Replication Destination

Using CData Sync, you can replicate EnterpriseDB data to any number of databases, both cloud-based and on-premises. To add a replication destination, navigate to the Connections tab.

  1. Click Add Connection.
  2. Select a destination and enter the necessary connection properties. In this article, we use SQLite.
  3. Enter the necessary connection properties. To replicate EnterpriseDB to a SQLite database, enter a file path in the Data Source box.
  4. Click Test Connection to ensure that the connection is configured properly.
  5. Click Save Changes.

Configure EnterpriseDB Connections

You can configure connections to EnterpriseDB from the Connections tab. To add a connection to one of your EnterpriseDB accounts, navigate to the Connections tab. For each EnterpriseDB account you wish to replicate, do the following:

  1. Click Add Connection.
  2. Select a source (EnterpriseDB).
  3. Configure the connection properties.

    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 Connect to ensure that the connection is configured properly.
  5. Click Save Changes.

Configure Queries for Each EnterpriseDB Instance

CData Sync enables you to control replication with a point-and-click interface and with SQL queries. To configure a replication, navigate to the Jobs tab and click Add Job. Select the Source and Destination for your replication.

Replicate Entire Tables

To replicate an entire table, click Add Tables in the Tables section, choose the table(s) you wish to replicate, and click Add Selected Tables.

Customize Your Replication

You can use a SQL query to customize your replication. 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 EnterpriseDB API. To customize your replication, click Add Custom Query in the Tables section and define the Query Statement.

The statement below caches and incrementally updates a table of EnterpriseDB data:

REPLICATE Orders;

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 EnterpriseDB accounts into the same database:

  • Use a different table prefix in the REPLICATE SELECT statement:

    REPLICATE PROD_Orders SELECT * FROM Orders;
  • Alternatively, use a different schema:

    REPLICATE PROD.Orders SELECT * FROM Orders;

Schedule Your Replication

In the Schedule section, you can schedule a job to run automatically, configuring the job to run after specified intervals ranging from once every 15 minutes to once every month.

Once you have configured the replication job, click Save Changes. You can configure any number of jobs to manage the replication of the data from your different EnterpriseDB accounts.
