  1. Add a new database driver for MYOB AccountRight: Click Connections -> Manage Database Drivers.
  2. In the resulting wizard, click the Add button and enter a name for the connection.
  3. Enter the prefix for the JDBC URL: jdbc:myob:
  4. Enter the path to the cdata.jdbc.myob.jar file, located in the lib subfolder of the installation directory.
  5. Enter the driver class: cdata.jdbc.myob.MYOBDriver
  6. Create a new MYOB AccountRight connection: Click Connections -> Manage Database Connections.
  7. Enter a name for your connection.
  8. For Database System, select the MYOB AccountRight driver you configured previously.
  9. Enter your connection string in the Host box.

    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 connection string is below:

    OAuthClientId=YourClientId; OAuthClientSecret=YourClientSecret; CompanyFileId=yourCompanyFileId; CallbackURL=http://localhost:33333; User=companyFileUser; Password=companyFilePassword; InitiateOAuth=GETANDREFRESH
  10. Enter your username and password if necessary.

You can now use your MYOB AccountRight connection with the various RapidMiner operators in your process. To retrieve MYOB AccountRight data, drag the Retrieve operator from the Operators view. With the Retrieve operator selected, you can then define which table to retrieve in the Parameters view by clicking the folder icon next to the "repository entry." In the resulting Repository Browser, you can expand your connection node to select the desired example set.

Finally, wire the output to the Retrieve process to a result, and run the process to see the MYOB AccountRight data.
