How to Query Oracle Sales Data in MySQL Workbench

Execute MySQL queries against live Oracle Sales data from MySQL Workbench.

You can use the SQL Gateway from the ODBC Driver for Oracle Sales to query Oracle Sales data through a MySQL interface. Follow the procedure below to start the MySQL remoting service of the SQL Gateway and work with live Oracle Sales data in MySQL Workbench.

Connect to Oracle Sales Data

If you have not already done so, provide values for the required connection properties in the data source name (DSN). You can use the built-in Microsoft ODBC Data Source Administrator to configure the DSN. This is also the last step of the driver installation. See the "Getting Started" chapter in the help documentation for a guide to using the Microsoft ODBC Data Source Administrator to create and configure a DSN.

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.

Configure the SQL Gateway

See the SQL Gateway Overview to set up connectivity to Oracle Sales data as a virtual MySQL database. You will configure a MySQL remoting service that listens for MySQL requests from clients. The service can be configured in the SQL Gateway UI.
