Connect to MYOB AccountRight as a JDBC data source in HULFT Integrate

HULFT Integrate is a modern data integration platform that provides a drag-and-drop user interface to create cooperation flows, data conversion, and processing so that complex data connections are easier than ever to execute. When paired with the CData JDBC Driver for MYOB AccountRight, HULFT Integrate can work with live MYOB AccountRight data. This article walks through connecting to MYOB AccountRight and moving the data into a CSV file.

With built-in optimized data processing, the CData JDBC Driver offers unmatched performance for interacting with live MYOB AccountRight data. When you issue complex SQL queries to MYOB AccountRight, the driver pushes supported SQL operations, like filters and aggregations, directly to MYOB AccountRight and utilizes the embedded SQL engine to process unsupported operations client-side (often SQL functions and JOIN operations). Its built-in dynamic metadata querying allows you to work with and analyze MYOB AccountRight data using native data types.

Enable Access to MYOB AccountRight

To enable access to MYOB AccountRight data from HULFT Integrate projects:

  1. Copy the CData JDBC Driver JAR file (and license file if it exists), cdata.jdbc.myob.jar (and cdata.jdbc.myob.lic), to the jdbc_adapter subfolder for the Integrate Server
  2. Restart the HULFT Integrate Server and launch HULFT Integrate Studio

Build a Project with Access to MYOB AccountRight Data

Once you copy the JAR files, you can create a project with access to MYOB AccountRight data. Start by opening Integrate Studio and creating a new project.

  1. Name the project
  2. Ensure the "Create script" checkbox is checked
  3. Click Next
  4. Name the script (e.g.: MYOBtoCSV)

Once you create the project, add components to the script to copy MYOB AccountRight data to a CSV file.

Configure an Execute Select SQL Component

Drag an "Execute Select SQL" component from the Tool Palette (Database -> JDBC) into the Script workspace.

  1. In the "Required settings" tab for the Destination, click "Add" to create a new connection for MYOB AccountRight. Set the following properties:
    • Name: MYOB AccountRight Connection Settings
    • Driver class name: cdata.jdbc.myob.MYOBDriver
    • URL: jdbc:myob:OAuthClientId=YourClientId; OAuthClientSecret=YourClientSecret; CompanyFileId=yourCompanyFileId; CallbackURL=http://localhost:33333; User=companyFileUser; Password=companyFilePassword; InitiateOAuth=GETANDREFRESH

      Built-in Connection String Designer

      For assistance 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.

      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.
  2. Write your SQL statement. For example:
    SELECT Id, Name FROM Accounts
  3. Click "Extraction test" to ensure the connection and query are configured properly
  4. Click "Execute SQL statement and set output schema"
  5. Click "Finish"

Configure a Write CSV File Component

Drag a "Write CSV File" component from the Tool Palette (File -> CSV) onto the workspace.

  1. Set a file to write the query results to (e.g. Accounts.csv)
  2. Set "Input data" to the "Select SQL" component
  3. Add columns for each field selected in the SQL query
  4. In the "Write settings" tab, check the checkbox to "Insert column names into first row"
  5. Click "Finish"

Map MYOB AccountRight Fields to the CSV Columns

Map each column from the "Select" component to the corresponding column for the "CSV" component.

Finish the Script

Drag the "Start" component onto the "Select" component and the "CSV" component onto the "End" component. Build the script and run the script to move MYOB AccountRight data into a CSV file.
