Connect to SAP Fieldglass Data in RazorSQL

Connect to SAP Fieldglass from wizards and query SAP Fieldglass data from the GUI in the RazorSQL database management tool.

The CData JDBC Driver for SAP Fieldglass 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 SAP Fieldglass using wizards in RazorSQL.

Create a JDBC Data Source for SAP Fieldglass 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.sapfieldglass.SAPFieldglassDriver.
    • 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:sapfieldglass: and is followed by a semicolon-separated list of connection properties.

      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.

      A typical JDBC URL is the following:

      jdbc:sapfieldglass:EnvironmentURL='https://myinstance.com';Username=myuser;Password=mypassword;APIKey=xxxxxxxx-xxxx-xxxx-xxxx-xxxxxxxxxxxx;InitiateOAuth=GETANDREFRESH

Query SAP Fieldglass 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.
