Connect to Veeva Data in RazorSQL

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

The CData JDBC Driver for Veeva 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 Veeva using wizards in RazorSQL.

Create a JDBC Data Source for Veeva 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.veeva.VeevaDriver.
    • 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:veeva: and is followed by a semicolon-separated list of connection properties.

      You are ready to connect after specifying the following connection properties:

      • Url: The host you see in the URL after you login to your account. For example: https://my-veeva-domain.veevavault.com
      • User: The username you use to login to your account.
      • Password: The password you use to login to your account.

      Built-in Connection String Designer

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

      java -jar cdata.jdbc.veeva.jar

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

      A typical JDBC URL is the following:

      jdbc:veeva:User=myuser;Password=mypassword;Server=localhost;Database=mydatabase;

Query Veeva 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.
