Create a virtual MySQL database for Marketo data in CData Connect (or Connect Cloud) and work with live Marketo data in MySQL Workbench.

MySQL Workbench allows users to administer MySQL environments and gain better visibility into databases. When paired with CData Connect (on-premise or Connect Cloud), you get live access to Marketo data as if it were a MySQL database. This article shows how to create a virtual database for Marketo in Connect and work with live Marketo data in MySQL Workbench.

Create a Virtual MySQL Database for Marketo Data

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

  1. Login to Connect and click Databases.
  2. Select "Marketo" from Available Data Sources.
  3. Enter the necessary authentication properties to connect to Marketo.

    Both the REST and SOAP APIs are supported and can be chosen by using the Schema property.

    For the REST API: The OAuthClientId, OAuthClientSecret, and RESTEndpoint properties, under the OAuth and REST Connection sections, must be set to valid Marketo user credentials.

    For the SOAP API: The UserId, EncryptionKey, and SOAPEndpoint properties, under the SOAP Connection section, must be set to valid Marketo user credentials.

    See the "Getting Started" chapter of the help documentation for a guide to obtaining these values.

  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 Marketo from MySQL Workbench.
