    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.

    jdbc:salesforcepardot:ApiVersion=4;User=YourUsername;Password=YourPassword;UserKey=YourUserKey;
  4. Enter the path to the cdata.jdbc.salesforcepardot.jar file, located in the lib subfolder of the installation directory.

  6. Click Next with the default options to select the tables you want to import.
