Connect to Microsoft OneDrive Data in CloverDX (formerly CloverETL)

Transfer Microsoft OneDrive data using the visual workflow in the CloverDX data integration tool.

The CData JDBC Driver for Microsoft OneDrive enables you to use the data transformation components in CloverDX (formerly CloverETL) to work with Microsoft OneDrive as sources. In this article, you will use the JDBC Driver for Microsoft OneDrive to set up a simple transfer into a flat file.

Connect to Microsoft OneDrive as a JDBC Data Source

  1. Create the connection to Microsoft OneDrive data. In a new CloverDX graph, right-click the Connections node in the Outline pane and click Connections -> Create Connection. The Database Connection wizard is displayed.
  2. Click the plus icon to load a driver from a JAR. Browse to the lib subfolder of the installation directory and select the cdata.jdbc.onedrive.jar file.
  3. Enter the JDBC URL.

    OneDrive uses the OAuth authentication standard. To authenticate using OAuth, you will need to create an app to obtain the OAuthClientId, OAuthClientSecret, and CallbackURL connection properties. See the OAuth section of the Help documentation for an authentication guide.

    Built-in Connection String Designer

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

    java -jar cdata.jdbc.onedrive.jar

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

    A typical JDBC URL is below:

    jdbc:onedrive:OAuthClientId=MyApplicationId;OAuthClientSecret=MySecretKey;OAuthCallbackURL=http://localhost:33333;InitiateOAuth=GETANDREFRESH

Query Microsoft OneDrive Data with the DBInputTable Component

  1. Drag a DBInputTable from the Readers selection of the Palette onto the job flow and double-click it to open the configuration editor.
  2. In the DB connection property, select the Microsoft OneDrive JDBC data source from the drop-down menu.
  3. Enter the SQL query. For example: SELECT Id, Name FROM Files WHERE Id = 'Jq74mCczmFXk1tC10GB'

Write the Output of the Query to a UniversalDataWriter

  1. Drag a UniversalDataWriter from the Writers selection onto the jobflow.
  2. Double-click the UniversalDataWriter to open the configuration editor and add a file URL.
  3. Right-click the DBInputTable and then click Extract Metadata.
  4. Connect the output port of the DBInputTable to the UniversalDataWriter.
  5. In the resulting Select Metadata menu for the UniversalDataWriter, choose the Files table. (You can also open this menu by right-clicking the input port for the UniversalDataWriter.)
  6. Click Run to write to the file.
