CData Sync

Automated Microsoft OneDrive Data Replication to SQL Server



Use CData Sync to Customize and automate Microsoft OneDrive data replication to Teradata.

Always-on applications rely on automatic failover capabilities and real-time data access. CData Sync integrates live Microsoft OneDrive data into your Teradata instance, allowing you to consolidate all of your data into a single location for archiving, reporting, analytics, machine learning, artificial intelligence and more.

Configure Teradata as a Replication Destination

Using CData Sync, you can replicate Microsoft OneDrive data to Teradata. To add a replication destination, navigate to the Connections tab.

  1. Click Add Connection.
  2. Select Teradata as a destination.
  3. Enter the necessary connection properties. To connect to Teradata, set the following connection properties (CData Sync ships with the Npgsql ADO.NET Provider for PostgreSQL):
    • Connection Name: Enter a connection name of your choice.
    • Data Source: Enter either the Teradata server name, the database computer (DBC) username, or the Teradata Director Program Id (TDPID).
    • User: Enter the username that you use to authenticate to your Teradata account.
    • Password: Enter the password that you use to authenticate to your Teradata account.
    • Auth Scheme: Select the authentication scheme. TD2 is the default scheme.
    • Database: Enter the name of your Teradata database.

      Note: If you do not specify a database, CData Sync connects to your default database.

    • Port: Enter the port number for your Teradata server. The default port value is 1025.
  4. Click Test Connection to ensure that the connection is configured properly.
  5. Click Save Changes.

Configure the Microsoft OneDrive Connection

You can configure a connection to Microsoft OneDrive from the Connections tab. To add a connection to your Microsoft OneDrive account, navigate to the Connections tab.

  1. Click Add Connection.
  2. Select a source (Microsoft OneDrive).
  3. Configure the connection properties.

    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.

  4. Click Connect to ensure that the connection is configured properly.
  5. Click Save Changes.

Configure Replication Queries

CData Sync enables you to control replication with a point-and-click interface and with SQL queries. For each replication you wish to configure, navigate to the Jobs tab and click Add Job. Select the Source and Destination for your replication.

Replicate Entire Tables

To replicate an entire table, click Add Tables in the Tables section, choose the table(s) you wish to replicate, and click Add Selected Tables.

Customize Your Replication

You can use the Columns and Query tabs of a task to customize your replication. The Columns tab allows you to specify which columns to replicate, rename the columns at the destination, and even perform operations on the source data before replicating. The Query tab allows you to add filters, grouping, and sorting to the replication.

Schedule Your Replication

In the Schedule section, you can schedule a job to run automatically, configuring the job to run after specified intervals ranging from once every 15 minutes to once every month.

Once you have configured the replication job, click Save Changes. You can configure any number of jobs to manage the replication of your Microsoft OneDrive data to Teradata.
