Manage Salesforce Marketing Data in DBArtisan as a JDBC Source

Use wizards in DBArtisan to create a JDBC data source for Salesforce Marketing.

The CData JDBC Driver for Salesforce Marketing seamlessly integrates Salesforce Marketing data into database management tools like DBArtisan by enabling you to access Salesforce Marketing data as a database. This article shows how to create a JDBC source for Salesforce Marketing in DBArtisan. You can then edit data visually and execute standard SQL.

Integrate Salesforce Marketing Data into DBArtisan Projects

Follow the steps below to register Salesforce Marketing data as a database instance in your project:

  1. In DBArtisan, click Data Source -> Register Datasource.
  2. Select Generic JDBC.
  3. Click Manage.
  4. In the resulting dialog, click New. Enter a name for the driver and click Add. In the resulting dialog, navigate to the driver JAR. The driver JAR is located in the lib subfolder of the installation directory.
  5. In the Connection URL box, enter credentials and other required connection properties in the JDBC URL.

    Authenticating to the Salesforce Marketing Cloud APIs

    Set the User and Password to your login credentials, or to the credentials for a sandbox user if you are connecting to a sandbox account.

    Connecting to the Salesforce Marketing Cloud APIs

    By default, the data provider connects to production environments. Set UseSandbox to true to use a Salesforce Marketing Cloud sandbox account.

    The default Instance is s7 of the Web Services API; however, if you use a different instance, you can set Instance.

    Built-in Connection String Designer

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

    java -jar cdata.jdbc.sfmarketingcloud.jar

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

    Below is a typical connection string:

    jdbc:sfmarketingcloud:User=myUser;Password=myPassword;InitiateOAuth=GETANDREFRESH
  6. Finish the wizard to connect to Salesforce Marketing data. Salesforce Marketing entities are displayed in the Datasource Explorer.

You can now work with Salesforce Marketing data as you work with any other database. See the driver help documentation for more information on the queries supported by the Salesforce Marketing API.
