SAP Fieldglass JDBC Driver

Provides Java developers with the power to easily connect their Web, Desktop, and Mobile applications to data in SAP Fieldglass Approvals, Audit Trails, Analytics, and more!

Use wizards in DBArtisan to create a JDBC data source for SAP Fieldglass.

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

Integrate SAP Fieldglass Data into DBArtisan Projects

Follow the steps below to register SAP Fieldglass 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.

    To authenticate, you will need to specify the Username, Password, APIKey, and EnvironmentURL connection properties.

    To obtain an APIKey, log in to the SAP API Business Hub and click on Get API Key.

    Built-in Connection String Designer

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

    java -jar cdata.jdbc.sapfieldglass.jar

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

    Below is a typical connection string:

  6. Finish the wizard to connect to SAP Fieldglass data. SAP Fieldglass entities are displayed in the Datasource Explorer.

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