CData Sync



Use CData Sync for automated, continuous, customizable SingleStore replication to Google BigQuery.

Always-on applications rely on automatic failover capabilities and real-time data access. CData Sync integrates live SingleStore data into your Google BigQuery instance, allowing you to consolidate all of your data into a single location for archiving, reporting, analytics, machine learning, artificial intelligence and more.

Configure Google BigQuery as a Replication Destination

Using CData Sync, you can replicate SingleStore data to Google BigQuery. To add a replication destination, navigate to the Connections tab.

  1. Click Add Connection.
  2. Select Google BigQuery as a destination.
  3. Enter the necessary connection properties. To connect to Google BigQuery, use OAuth authentication:

    Authenticate with a User Account

    In this OAuth flow, you can connect without setting any connection properties for your user credentials.

    1. Click Connect, and CData Sync opens the Google BigQuery OAuth endpoint.
    2. Log in and grant permissions to CData Sync.
    3. CData Sync then completes the OAuth process.

    Authenticate with a Service Account

    Service accounts have silent authentication, without user authentication in the browser. You can also use a service account to delegate enterprise-wide access scopes to CData Sync.

    You need to create an OAuth application in this flow. See Creating a Custom OAuth App in the Getting Started section to create and authorize an app. You can then connect to Google BigQuery data that the service account has permission to access.

    After setting the following connection properties, you are ready to connect:

    • OAuthClientId: Set this to the Client ID in your app settings.
    • OAuthClientSecret: Set this to the Client Secret in your app settings.
    • OAuthJWTCertType: Set this to "PEMKEY_FILE".
    • OAuthJWTCert: Set this to the path to the .pem file you generated.
    • OAuthJWTCertPassword: Set this to the password of the .pem file.
    • OAuthJWTCertSubject: Set this to "*" to pick the first certificate in the certificate store.
    • OAuthJWTSubject: Set this to the email address of the user for whom the application is requesting delegate access. Note that delegate access must be granted by an administrator.
    • DatasetId: Set this to the ID of the dataset you want to connect to.
    • ProjectId: Set this to the ID of the project you want to connect to.
    When you connect, CData Sync completes the OAuth flow for a service account.

  4. Click Test Connection to ensure that the connection is configured properly.
  5. Click Save Changes.

Configure the SingleStore Connection

You can configure a connection to SingleStore from the Connections tab. To add a connection to your SingleStore account, navigate to the Connections tab.

  1. Click Add Connection.
  2. Select a source (SingleStore).
  3. Configure the connection properties.

    The following connection properties are required in order to connect to data.

    • Server: The host name or IP of the server hosting the SingleStore database.
    • Port: The port of the server hosting the SingleStore database.
    • Database (Optional): The default database to connect to when connecting to the SingleStore Server. If this is not set, tables from all databases will be returned.

    Connect Using Standard Authentication

    To authenticate using standard authentication, set the following:

    • User: The user which will be used to authenticate with the SingleStore server.
    • Password: The password which will be used to authenticate with the SingleStore server.

    Connect Using Integrated Security

    As an alternative to providing the standard username and password, you can set IntegratedSecurity to True to authenticate trusted users to the server via Windows Authentication.

    Connect Using SSL Authentication

    You can leverage SSL authentication to connect to SingleStore data via a secure session. Configure the following connection properties to connect to data:

    • SSLClientCert: Set this to the name of the certificate store for the client certificate. Used in the case of 2-way SSL, where truststore and keystore are kept on both the client and server machines.
    • SSLClientCertPassword: If a client certificate store is password-protected, set this value to the store's password.
    • SSLClientCertSubject: The subject of the TLS/SSL client certificate. Used to locate the certificate in the store.
    • SSLClientCertType: The certificate type of the client store.
    • SSLServerCert: The certificate to be accepted from the server.

    Connect Using SSH Authentication

    Using SSH, you can securely login to a remote machine. To access SingleStore data via SSH, configure the following connection properties:

    • SSHClientCert: Set this to the name of the certificate store for the client certificate.
    • SSHClientCertPassword: If a client certificate store is password-protected, set this value to the store's password.
    • SSHClientCertSubject: The subject of the TLS/SSL client certificate. Used to locate the certificate in the store.
    • SSHClientCertType: The certificate type of the client store.
    • SSHPassword: The password that you use to authenticate with the SSH server.
    • SSHPort: The port used for SSH operations.
    • SSHServer: The SSH authentication server you are trying to authenticate against.
    • SSHServerFingerPrint: The SSH Server fingerprint used for verification of the host you are connecting to.
    • SSHUser: Set this to the username that you use to authenticate with the SSH server.
  4. Click Connect to ensure that the connection is configured properly.
  5. Click Save Changes.

Configure Replication Queries

CData Sync enables you to control replication with a point-and-click interface and with SQL queries. For each replication you wish to configure, navigate to the Jobs tab and click Add Job. Select the Source and Destination for your replication.

Replicate Entire Tables

To replicate an entire table, click Add Tables in the Tables section, choose the table(s) you wish to replicate, and click Add Selected Tables.

Customize Your Replication

You can use the Transform feature to customize your replication. The Transform feature allows you to specify which columns to replicate, rename the columns at the destination, and even perform operations on the source data before replicating. To customize your replication, click the Transform button in the Tables section and customize the replication.

Schedule Your Replication

In the Schedule section, you can schedule a job to run automatically, configuring the job to run after specified intervals ranging from once every 15 minutes to once every month.

Once you have configured the replication job, click Save Changes. You can configure any number of jobs to manage the replication of your SingleStore data to Google BigQuery.
