Tableau CRM Analytics JDBC Driver

Rapidly create and deploy powerful Java applications that integrate with Tableau CRM Analytics.



Access Tableau CRM Analytics data from tools in Aqua Data Studio such as the Visual Query Builder and the Table Data Editor.

The CData JDBC Driver for Tableau CRM Analytics integrates Tableau CRM Analytics data with wizards and analytics in IDEs like Aqua Data Studio. This article shows how to connect to Tableau CRM Analytics data through the connection manager and execute queries.

Create a JDBC Data Source

You can use the connection manager to define connection properties and save them in a new JDBC data source. The Tableau CRM Analytics data source can then be accessed from Aqua Data Studio tools.

  1. In Aqua Data Studio, select Register Server from the Servers menu.
  2. In the Register Server form, select the 'Generic - JDBC' connection.
  3. Enter the following JDBC connection properties:
    • Name: Enter a name for the data source; for example, Tableau CRM Analytics.
    • Driver Location: Click the Browse button and select the cdata.jdbc.tableaucrm.jar file, located in the lib subfolder of the installation directory.
    • Driver: Enter the Driver's class name, cdata.jdbc.tableaucrm.TableauCRMDriver.
    • URL: Enter the JDBC URL, which starts with jdbc:tableaucrm: and is followed by a semicolon-separated list of connection properties.

      Tableau CRM Analytics uses the OAuth 2 authentication standard. You will need to obtain the OAuthClientId and OAuthClientSecret by registering an app with Tableau CRM Analytics.

      See the Getting Started section of the Help documentation for an authentication guide.

      Built-in Connection String Designer

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

      java -jar cdata.jdbc.tableaucrm.jar

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

      A typical JDBC URL is below:

      jdbc:tableaucrm:OAuthClientId=MyConsumerKey;OAuthClientSecret=MyConsumerSecret;CallbackURL=http://localhost:portNumber;InitiateOAuth=GETANDREFRESH

Query Tableau CRM Analytics Data

You can now query the tables exposed.
