CData Connect



Use the CData Connect Cloud to create an OData API on top of MYOB AccountRight data and visualize live MYOB AccountRight data in Ingragistics Reveal.

Reveal is a data visualization solution provided by Infragistics and can be paired with the CData Connect Cloud and MYOB AccountRight Connector to build dynamic dashboards from live MYOB AccountRight data. The CData Connect Cloud creates a virtual database for MYOB AccountRight and can be used to generate an OData API (natively consumable in Reveal) for MYOB AccountRight. In this article, we walk through connecting to MYOB AccountRight in Connect Cloud and connecting to Connect Cloud from Infragistics Reveal to create a simple dashboard.

Add a Connect Cloud User

Create a User to connect to MYOB AccountRight from Reveal through Connect Cloud.

  1. Click Users -> Add
  2. Configure a User
  3. Click Save Changes and make note of the Authtoken for the new user

Connect to MYOB AccountRight from Connect Cloud

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

  1. Open Connect Cloud and click Databases
  2. Select "MYOB AccountRight" from Available Data Sources
  3. Enter the necessary authentication properties to connect to MYOB AccountRight.

    These properties are required when connecting to a company file (both for Cloud and On-Premise instances).

    • CompanyFileId: You can find this by starting MYOB, opening your data file, and selecting Help -> About MYOB
    • User: The username associated with your company file.
    • Password: The password associated with your company file.

    Connecting to a Cloud Instance

    To connect to a cloud instance of MYOB, you can use the embedded OAuth credentials or create an OAuth app with MYOB. This process is detailed in the Help documentation.

    Connecting to an On-Premise instance:

    When connecting to an on-premise instance, you will need to set the following connection property in addition to those above:

    • InitiateOauth: Set this to OFF.
    • Url: The Url of your MYOB instance.
  4. Click Test Database
  5. Click Privileges -> Add and add the new user (or an existing user) with the appropriate permissions (SELECT is all that is required for Reveal).

Add MYOB AccountRight OData Endpoints in Connect Cloud

After connecting to MYOB AccountRight, create OData Endpoint for the desired table(s).

  1. Click OData -> Tables -> Add Tables
  2. Select the MYOB AccountRight database
  3. Select the table(s) you wish to work with and click Next
  4. (Optional) Edit the resource to select specific fields and more
  5. Save the settings

(Optional) Configure Cross-Origin Resource Sharing (CORS)

When accessing and connecting to multiple different domains from an application such as Ajax, there is a possibility of violating the limitations of cross-site scripting. In that case, configure the CORS settings in OData -> Settings.

  • Enable cross-origin resource sharing (CORS): ON
  • Allow all domains without '*': ON
  • Access-Control-Allow-Methods: GET, PUT, POST, OPTIONS
  • Access-Control-Allow-Headers: Authorization

Save the changes to the settings.

Create a Dashboard in Reveal

With Connect Cloud configured, we can visualize MYOB AccountRight data in Reveal.

  1. Log into Reveal and click Dashboards -> New
  2. Click Data Source -> OData Feed
  3. Specify the Connect Cloud API endpoint URL (found in API -> Discovery -> Base URL), for example: https://www.cdatacloud.com/myinstance/api.rsc
  4. Select Generic Credentials and specify the Connect Cloud username and authentication token
  5. Select the entity you wish to visualize
