Connect to MYOB AccountRight Data in IntelliJ

Integrate connectivity to MYOB AccountRight data with wizards in IntelliJ.

The CData JDBC Driver for MYOB AccountRight enables you to access MYOB AccountRight as a JDBC data source, providing integration with rapid development tools in IDEs. This article shows how to use the data source configuration wizard to connect to MYOB AccountRight data in IntelliJ.

Create a JBDC Data Source for MYOB AccountRight

Follow the steps below to add the driver JAR and define connection properties required to connect to MYOB AccountRight data.

  1. In the Data Sources window, right-click and then click Add Data Source -> DB Data Source.
  2. In the Data Source Properties dialog that appears, the following properties are required:

    • JDBC Driver Files: Click the button next to this menu to add the JDBC Driver file cdata.jdbc.myob.jar, located in the installation directory.
    • JDBC Driver Class: In this menu, select cdata.jdbc.myob.MYOBDriver from the list.
    • Database URL: Enter the connection URL in the JDBC URL property. The URL must start with jdbc:myob: and includes connection properties separated with semicolons.

      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.

      A typical JDBC URL is the following:

      jdbc:myob:OAuthClientId=YourClientId; OAuthClientSecret=YourClientSecret; CompanyFileId=yourCompanyFileId; CallbackURL=http://localhost:33333; User=companyFileUser; Password=companyFilePassword; InitiateOAuth=GETANDREFRESH

Edit and Save MYOB AccountRight Data

To discover schema information, right-click the data source you just created and click Refresh Tables. To query a table, right-click it and then click Open Tables Editor. You can also modify records in the Table Editor.
