Connect to Epicor ERP Data in RazorSQL

Connect to Epicor ERP from wizards and query Epicor ERP data from the GUI in the RazorSQL database management tool.

The CData JDBC Driver for Epicor ERP enables standards-based access from third-party tools, from wizards in IDEs to data management and analysis tools. This article shows how to connect to Epicor ERP using wizards in RazorSQL.

Create a JDBC Data Source for Epicor ERP Data

  1. Open the RazorSQL application and, in the Connections menu, select Add Connection Profile -> Other -> JDBC.
  2. In the Connection Wizard that appears, set the following properties:
    • Driver Location: Set this property to the path to the lib subfolder in the installation directory.
    • Driver Class: Set the driver class to cdata.jdbc.epicorerp.EpicorERPDriver.
    • Username: Enter the username. (This property can also be set in the JDBC URL.)
    • Password: Enter the password. (This property can also be set in the JDBC URL.)
    • JDBC URL: Enter connection parameters. The JDBC URL begins with jdbc:epicorerp: and is followed by a semicolon-separated list of connection properties.

      To successfully connect to your ERP instance, you must specify the following connection properties:

      • Url:the URL of the server hosting your ERP instance. For example, https://myserver.EpicorSaaS.com
      • ERPInstance: the name of your ERP instance.
      • User: the username of your account.
      • Password: the password of your account.
      • Service: the service you want to retrieve data from. For example, BaqSvc.

      In addition, you may also set the optional connection properties:

      • ApiKey: An optional key that may be required for connection to some services depending on your account configuration.
      • ApiVersion: Defaults to v1. May be set to v2 to use the newer Epicor API.
      • Company: Required if you set the ApiVersion to v2.

      Built-in Connection String Designer

      For assistance in constructing the JDBC URL, use the connection string designer built into the Epicor ERP JDBC Driver. Either double-click the JAR file or execute the jar file from the command-line.

      java -jar cdata.jdbc.epicorerp.jar

      Fill in the connection properties and copy the connection string to the clipboard.

      A typical JDBC URL is the following:

      jdbc:epicorerp:ervice=Erp.BO.CustomerSvc;ERPInstance=MyInstance;URL=https://myaccount.epicorsaas.com;User=username;Password=password;InitiateOAuth=GETANDREFRESH

Query Epicor ERP Data and Select Tables

After establishing a connection, the wizard will close and the connection will be available in the connections panel. You can then query the tables.
