How to view Marketo data in RAD Studio Data Explorer using the CData FireDAC Components for Marketo.

Embarcadero RAD Studio provides a development environment for Delphi and C++Builder applications. With the CData FireDAC Components for Marketo, you gain access to live Marketo data within RAD Studio, abstracting the data into tables, views, and stored procedures that can be used to both retrieve and update Marketo data. This article will walk through connecting to Marketo using the Data Explorer.

Connecting to Marketo Data Using Data Explorer

You can create a simple application for displaying Marketo data by utilizing the CData FireDAC Components for Marketo and a new VCL Forms Application:

  1. Open the Data Explorer in RAD Studio and expand FireDAC.
  2. Right-click on CData Marketo Data Source and click Add New Connection.

  3. Name the connection.
  4. Fill in the necessary connection parameters and click OK.

    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.

  5. Back in the Data Explorer, expand the tables for the connection.
  6. Create a new VCL Forms application and drag a table (for example: Leads) onto the form.

  7. Select the LeadsTable object on the form and set the Active property to true.
  8. Right-click on the object, bind visually, and link everything (*) to a new control (TStringGrid).

  9. Arrange the TStringGrid on the form and run the application to see the Leads data.
