Query Sage 200 Data in MySQL Workbench

Create a virtual MySQL database for Sage 200 data in CData Connect (or Connect Server) and work with live Sage 200 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 Sage 200 data as if it were a MySQL database. This article shows how to create a virtual database for Sage 200 in Connect and work with live Sage 200 data in MySQL Workbench.

Create a Virtual MySQL Database for Sage 200 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 "Sage 200" from Available Data Sources.
  3. Enter the necessary authentication properties to connect to Sage 200.
    • Schema: Determines which Sage 200 edition you are connecting to. Specify either StandardUK or ProfessionalUK.
    • Subscription Key: Provides access to the APIs that are used to establish a connection. You will first need to log into the Sage 200 API website and subscribe to the API edition that matches your account. You can do so here: Afterwards, the subscription key may be found in your profile after logging into Sage 200.
  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 Sage 200 from MySQL Workbench.
