    Built-in Connection String Designer

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

    java -jar cdata.jdbc.sagebcaccounting.jar

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

    A typical JDBC URL is below:

    jdbc:sagebcaccounting:InitiateOAuth=GETANDREFRESH

  2. In the DB connection property, select the Sage Cloud Accounting JDBC data source from the drop-down menu.
  3. Enter the SQL query. For example: SELECT contact_name, total_amount FROM SalesInvoices WHERE sent = 'TRUE'

Write the Output of the Query to a UniversalDataWriter

  1. Drag a UniversalDataWriter from the Writers selection onto the jobflow.
  2. Double-click the UniversalDataWriter to open the configuration editor and add a file URL.
  3. Right-click the DBInputTable and then click Extract Metadata.
  4. Connect the output port of the DBInputTable to the UniversalDataWriter.
  5. In the resulting Select Metadata menu for the UniversalDataWriter, choose the SalesInvoices table. (You can also open this menu by right-clicking the input port for the UniversalDataWriter.)
