Manage MYOB AccountRight Data in DBArtisan as a JDBC Source

Use wizards in DBArtisan to create a JDBC data source for MYOB AccountRight.

The CData JDBC Driver for MYOB AccountRight seamlessly integrates MYOB AccountRight data into database management tools like DBArtisan by enabling you to access MYOB AccountRight data as a database. This article shows how to create a JDBC source for MYOB AccountRight in DBArtisan. You can then edit data visually and execute standard SQL.

Integrate MYOB AccountRight Data into DBArtisan Projects

Follow the steps below to register MYOB AccountRight data as a database instance in your project:

  1. In DBArtisan, click Data Source -> Register Datasource.
  2. Select Generic JDBC.
  3. Click Manage.
  4. In the resulting dialog, click New. Enter a name for the driver and click Add. In the resulting dialog, navigate to the driver JAR. The driver JAR is located in the lib subfolder of the installation directory.
  5. In the Connection URL box, enter credentials and other required connection properties in the JDBC URL.

    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.

    Built-in Connection String Designer

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

    java -jar cdata.jdbc.myob.jar

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

    Below is a typical connection string:

    jdbc:myob:OAuthClientId=YourClientId; OAuthClientSecret=YourClientSecret; CompanyFileId=yourCompanyFileId; CallbackURL=http://localhost:33333; User=companyFileUser; Password=companyFilePassword; InitiateOAuth=GETANDREFRESH
  6. Finish the wizard to connect to MYOB AccountRight data. MYOB AccountRight entities are displayed in the Datasource Explorer.

You can now work with MYOB AccountRight data as you work with any other database. See the driver help documentation for more information on the queries supported by the MYOB AccountRight API.
