Connect to Sage 300 Data in RazorSQL

Connect to Sage 300 from wizards and query Sage 300 data from the GUI in the RazorSQL database management tool.

The CData JDBC Driver for Sage 300 enables standards-based access from third-party tools, from wizards in IDEs to data management and analysis tools. This article shows how to connect to Sage 300 using wizards in RazorSQL.

Create a JDBC Data Source for Sage 300 Data

  1. Open the RazorSQL application and, in the Connections menu, select Add Connection Profile -> Other -> JDBC.
  2. In the Connection Wizard that appears, set the following properties:
    • Driver Location: Set this property to the path to the lib subfolder in the installation directory.
    • Driver Class: Set the driver class to cdata.jdbc.sage300.Sage300Driver.
    • Username: Enter the username. (This property can also be set in the JDBC URL.)
    • Password: Enter the password. (This property can also be set in the JDBC URL.)
    • JDBC URL: Enter connection parameters. The JDBC URL begins with jdbc:sage300: and is followed by a semicolon-separated list of connection properties.

      Sage 300 requires some initial setup in order to communicate over the Sage 300 Web API.

      • Set up the security groups for the Sage 300 user. Give the Sage 300 user access to the option under Security Groups (per each module required).
      • Edit both web.config files in the /Online/Web and /Online/WebApi folders; change the key AllowWebApiAccessForAdmin to true. Restart the webAPI app-pool for the settings to take.
      • Once the user access is configured, click https://server/Sage300WebApi/ to ensure access to the web API.

      Authenticate to Sage 300 using Basic authentication.

      Connect Using Basic Authentication

      You must provide values for the following properties to successfully authenticate to Sage 300. Note that the provider reuses the session opened by Sage 300 using cookies. This means that your credentials are used only on the first request to open the session. After that, cookies returned from Sage 300 are used for authentication.

      • Url: Set this to the url of the server hosting Sage 300. Construct a URL for the Sage 300 Web API as follows: {protocol}://{host-application-path}/v{version}/{tenant}/ For example, http://localhost/Sage300WebApi/v1.0/-/.
      • User: Set this to the username of your account.
      • Password: Set this to the password of your account.

      Built-in Connection String Designer

      For assistance in constructing the JDBC URL, use the connection string designer built into the Sage 300 JDBC Driver. Either double-click the JAR file or execute the jar file from the command-line.

      java -jar cdata.jdbc.sage300.jar

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

      A typical JDBC URL is the following:

      jdbc:sage300:User=SAMPLE;Password=password;URL=http://127.0.0.1/Sage300WebApi/v1/-/;Company=SAMINC;

Query Sage 300 Data and Select Tables

After establishing a connection, the wizard will close and the connection will be available in the connections panel. You can then query the tables.
