Connect to Office 365 Data in IntelliJ

Integrate connectivity to Office 365 data with wizards in IntelliJ.

The CData JDBC Driver for Office 365 enables you to access Office 365 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 Office 365 data in IntelliJ.

Create a JBDC Data Source for Office 365

Follow the steps below to add the driver JAR and define connection properties required to connect to Office 365 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.office365.jar, located in the installation directory.
    • JDBC Driver Class: In this menu, select cdata.jdbc.office365.Office365Driver from the list.
    • Database URL: Enter the connection URL in the JDBC URL property. The URL must start with jdbc:office365: and includes connection properties separated with semicolons.

      Office 365 uses the OAuth authentication standard. To authenticate requests, you will need to obtain the OAuthClientId, OAuthClientSecret, and OAuthCallbackURL by registering an app with Office 365. See the "Getting Started" chapter of the help documentation for a guide to using OAuth.

      Built-in Connection String Designer

      For assistance in constructing the JDBC URL, use the connection string designer built into the Office 365 JDBC Driver. Either double-click the JAR file or execute the jar file from the command-line.

      java -jar cdata.jdbc.office365.jar

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

      A typical JDBC URL is the following:

      jdbc:office365:OAuthClientId=MyApplicationId;OAuthClientSecret=MyAppKey;OAuthCallbackURL=http://localhost:33333;InitiateOAuth=GETANDREFRESH

Edit and Save Office 365 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.
