Connect to Pinterest Data in IntelliJ

Integrate connectivity to Pinterest data with wizards in IntelliJ.

The CData JDBC Driver for Pinterest enables you to access Pinterest as a JDBC data source, providing integration with rapid development tools in IDEs. This article shows how to use the data source configuration wizard to connect to Pinterest data in IntelliJ.

Create a JBDC Data Source for Pinterest

Follow the steps below to add the driver JAR and define connection properties required to connect to Pinterest data.

  1. In the Data Sources window, right-click and then click Add Data Source -> DB Data Source.
  2. In the Data Source Properties dialog that appears, the following properties are required:

    • JDBC Driver Files: Click the button next to this menu to add the JDBC Driver file cdata.jdbc.pinterest.jar, located in the installation directory.
    • JDBC Driver Class: In this menu, select cdata.jdbc.pinterest.PinterestDriver from the list.
    • Database URL: Enter the connection URL in the JDBC URL property. The URL must start with jdbc:pinterest: and includes connection properties separated with semicolons.

      Pinterest authentication is based on the standard OAuth flow. To authenticate, you must initially create an app via the Pinterest developer platform where you can obtain an OAuthClientId, OAuthClientSecret, and CallbackURL.

      Set InitiateOAuth to GETANDREFRESH and set OAuthClientId, OAuthClientSecret, and CallbackURL based on the property values for the app you created.

      See the Help documentation for other OAuth authentication flows.

      Built-in Connection String Designer

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

      java -jar cdata.jdbc.pinterest.jar

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

      A typical JDBC URL is the following:

      jdbc:pinterest:OAuthClientId=YourClientId;OAuthClientSecret=YourClientSecret;CallbackURL='https://localhost:33333'InitiateOAuth=GETANDREFRESH

Edit and Save Pinterest Data

To discover schema information, right-click the data source you just created and click Refresh Tables. To query a table, right-click it and then click Open Tables Editor.
