Create a virtual MySQL database for SurveyMonkey data in CData Connect (or Connect Cloud) and work with live SurveyMonkey data in MySQL Workbench.

MySQL Workbench allows users to administer MySQL environments and gain better visibility into databases. When paired with CData Connect (on-premise or Connect Cloud), you get live access to SurveyMonkey data as if it were a MySQL database. This article shows how to create a virtual database for SurveyMonkey in Connect and work with live SurveyMonkey data in MySQL Workbench.

Create a Virtual MySQL Database for SurveyMonkey Data

CData Connect uses a straightforward, point-and-click interface to connect to data sources and generate APIs.

  1. Login to Connect and click Databases.
  2. Select "SurveyMonkey" from Available Data Sources.
  3. Enter the necessary authentication properties to connect to SurveyMonkey.

    SurveyMonkey uses the OAuth 2 authentication standard. See the Getting Started section in the help documentation for a guide.

  4. Click Test Database.
  5. Click Privileges -> Add and add the new user (or an existing user) with the appropriate permissions.

With the virtual database created, you are ready to connect to SurveyMonkey from MySQL Workbench.
