Query Oracle Sales Data in MySQL Workbench

Create a virtual MySQL database for Oracle Sales data in CData Connect (or Connect Server) and work with live Oracle Sales data in MySQL Workbench.

MySQL Workbench allows users to administer MySQL environments and gain better visibility into databases. When paired with CData Connect (on-premise or Connect Server), you get live access to Oracle Sales data as if it were a MySQL database. This article shows how to create a virtual database for Oracle Sales in Connect and work with live Oracle Sales data in MySQL Workbench.

Create a Virtual MySQL Database for Oracle Sales Data

CData Connect uses a straightforward, point-and-click interface to connect to data sources and generate APIs.

  1. Login to Connect and click Connections.
  2. Select "Oracle Sales" from Available Data Sources.
  3. Enter the necessary authentication properties to connect to Oracle Sales.

    Oracle Sales uses Basic authentication over SSL; after setting the following connection properties, you are ready to connect:

    • Username: Set this to the user name that you use to log into your Oracle Cloud service.
    • Password: Set this to your password.
    • HostURL: Set this to the Web address (URL) of your Oracle Cloud service.

  4. Click Save Changes
  5. Click Privileges -> Add and add the new user (or an existing user) with the appropriate permissions.

With the virtual database created, you are ready to connect to Oracle Sales from MySQL Workbench.
