An easy-to-use set of PowerShell Cmdlets offering real-time access to Intacct data. The Cmdlets allow users to easily read, write, update, and delete live data - just like working with SQL server.

PowerShell Scripting to Replicate Sage Intacct Data to MySQL

Write a simple PowerShell script to replicate Sage Intacct data to a MySQL database.

The CData Cmdlets for Sage Intacct offer live access to Sage Intacct data from within PowerShell. Using PowerShell scripts, you can easily automate regular tasks like data replication. This article will walk through using the CData Cmdlets for Sage Intacct and the CData Cmdlets for MySQL in PowerShell to replicate Sage Intacct data to a MySQL database.

After obtaining the needed connection properties, accessing Sage Intacct data in PowerShell and preparing for replication consists of four basic steps.

To connect using the Login method, the following connection properties are required: User, Password, CompanyId, SenderId and SenderPassword.

User, Password, and CompanyId are the credentials for the account you wish to connect to.

SenderId and SenderPassword are the Web Services credentials assigned to you by Sage Intacct.

Collecting Sage Intacct Data

  1. Install the module:

    Install-Module SageIntacctCmdlets
  2. Connect to Sage Intacct:

    $sageintacct = Connect-SageIntacct -User $User -CompanyId $CompanyId -Password $Password -SenderId $SenderId -SenderPassword $SenderPassword
  3. Retrieve the data from a specific resource:

    $data = Select-SageIntacct -Connection $sageintacct -Table "Customer"

    You can also use the Invoke-SageIntacct cmdlet to execute pure SQL-92 statements:

    $data = Invoke-SageIntacct -Connection $sageintacct -Query 'SELECT * FROM Customer WHERE CustomerId = @CustomerId' -Params @{'@CustomerId'='12345'}
  4. Save a list of the column names from the returned data.

    $columns = ($data | Get-Member -MemberType NoteProperty | Select-Object -Property Name).Name

Inserting Sage Intacct Data into the MySQL Database

With the data and column names collected, you are ready to replicate the data into a MySQL database.

  1. Install the module:

    Install-Module MySQLCmdlets
  2. Connect to MySQL, using the server address and port of the MySQL server, valid user credentials, and a specific database with the table in which the data will be replicated:

    $mysql = Connect-MySQL -User $User -Password $Password -Database $Database -Server $Server -Port $Port
  3. Loop through the Sage Intacct data, store the values, and use the Add-MySQL cmdlet to insert the data into the MySQL database, one row at a time. In this example, the table will need to have the same name as the Sage Intacct resource (Customer) and to exist in the database.

    $data | % { $row = $_ $values = @() $columns | % { $col = $_ $values += $row.$($col) } Add-MySQL -Connection $mysql -Table "Customer" -Columns $columns -Values $values }

You have now replicated your Sage Intacct data to a MySQL database. This gives you freedom to work with Sage Intacct data in the same way that you work with other MySQL tables, whether that is performing analytics, building reports, or other business functions.


  • Once you have connected to Sage Intacct and MySQL in PowerShell, you can pipe command results to perform the replication in a single line:

    Select-SageIntacct -Connection $sageintacct -Table "Customer" | % { $row = $_ $values = @() $columns | % { $col = $_ $values += $row.$($col) } Add-MySQL -Connection $mysql -Table "Customer" -Columns $columns -Values $values }
  • If you wish to replicate the Sage Intacct data to another database using another PowerShell module, you will want to exclude the Columns, Connection, and Table columns from the data returned by the Select-SageIntacct cmdlet since those columns are used to help pipe data from one CData cmdlet to another:

    $columns = ($data | Get-Member -MemberType NoteProperty | Select-Object -Property Name).Name | ? {$_ -NotIn @('Columns','Connection','Table')}
