Connect to Salesforce Marketing Data in RazorSQL

Connect to Salesforce Marketing from wizards and query Salesforce Marketing data from the GUI in the RazorSQL database management tool.

The CData JDBC Driver for Salesforce Marketing 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 Salesforce Marketing using wizards in RazorSQL.

Create a JDBC Data Source for Salesforce Marketing 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.sfmarketingcloud.SFMarketingCloudDriver.
    • 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:sfmarketingcloud: and is followed by a semicolon-separated list of connection properties.

      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.

      A typical JDBC URL is the following:

      jdbc:sfmarketingcloud:User=myUser;Password=myPassword;InitiateOAuth=GETANDREFRESH

Query Salesforce Marketing 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.
