Salesforce Pardot JDBC Driver

Rapidly create and deploy powerful Java applications that integrate with Salesforce Pardot.



Access Salesforce Pardot data from tools in Aqua Data Studio such as the Visual Query Builder and the Table Data Editor.

The CData JDBC Driver for Salesforce Pardot integrates Salesforce Pardot data with wizards and analytics in IDEs like Aqua Data Studio. This article shows how to connect to Salesforce Pardot data through the connection manager and execute queries.

Create a JDBC Data Source

You can use the connection manager to define connection properties and save them in a new JDBC data source. The Salesforce Pardot data source can then be accessed from Aqua Data Studio tools.

  1. In Aqua Data Studio, select Register Server from the Servers menu.
  2. In the Register Server form, select the 'Generic - JDBC' connection.
  3. Enter the following JDBC connection properties:
    • Name: Enter a name for the data source; for example, Salesforce Pardot.
    • Driver Location: Click the Browse button and select the cdata.jdbc.salesforcepardot.jar file, located in the lib subfolder of the installation directory.
    • Driver: Enter the Driver's class name, cdata.jdbc.salesforcepardot.SalesforcePardotDriver.
    • URL: Enter the JDBC URL, which starts with jdbc:salesforcepardot: and is followed by a semicolon-separated list of connection properties.

      Salesforce Pardot supports connecting through API Version, Username, Password and User Key.

      • ApiVersion: The Salesforce Pardot API version which the provided account can access. Defaults to 4.
      • User: The Username of the Salesforce Pardot account.
      • Password: The Password of the Salesforce Pardot account.
      • UserKey: The unique User Key for the Salesforce Pardot account. This key does not expire.
      • IsDemoAccount (optional): Set to TRUE to connect to a demo account.

      Accessing the Pardot User Key

      The User Key of the current account may be accessed by going to Settings -> My Profile, under the API User Key row.

      Built-in Connection String Designer

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

      java -jar cdata.jdbc.salesforcepardot.jar

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

      A typical JDBC URL is below:

      jdbc:salesforcepardot:ApiVersion=4;User=YourUsername;Password=YourPassword;UserKey=YourUserKey;

Query Salesforce Pardot Data

You can now query the tables exposed.
