TIBCO DV Adapters


Use the CData TIBCO DV Adapter for Veeva to create a Veeva data source in TIBCO Data Virtualization Studio and gain access to live Veeva data from your TDV Server.

TIBCO Data Virtualization (TDV) is an enterprise data virtualization solution that orchestrates access to multiple and varied data sources. When paired with the CData TIBCO DV Adapter for Veeva, you get federated access to live Veeva data directly within TIBCO Data Virtualization. This article walks through deploying an adapter and creating a new data source based on Veeva.

With built-in optimized data processing, the CData TIBCO DV Adapter offers unmatched performance for interacting with live Veeva data. When you issue complex SQL queries to Veeva, the adapter pushes supported SQL operations, like filters and aggregations, directly to Veeva. Its built-in dynamic metadata querying allows you to work with and analyze Veeva data using native data types.

Deploy the Veeva TIBCO DV Adapter

  1. In a console, navigate to the bin folder in the TDV Server installation directory. If there is a current version of the adapter installed, you will need to undeploy it.

    .\server_util.bat -server localhost -user admin -password ******** -undeploy -version 1 -name Veeva
    
  2. Extract the CData TIBCO DV Adapter to a local folder and deploy the JAR file (tdv.veeva.jar) to the server from the extract location.

    .\server_util.bat -server localhost -user admin -password ******** -deploy -package /PATH/TO/tdv.veeva.jar
    

You may need to restart the server to ensure the new JAR file is loaded properly, which can be accomplished by running the composite.bat script located at: C:\Program Files\TIBCO\TDV Server <version>\bin. Note that reauthenticating to the TDV Studio is required after restarting the server.

Sample Restart Call

.\composite.bat monitor restart
Once you deploy the adapter, you can create a new data source in TDV Studio for Veeva.

Create a Veeva Data Source in TDV Studio

With the CData TIBCO DV Adapter for Veeva, you can easily create a data source for Veeva and introspect the data source to add resources to TDV.

Create the Data Source

  1. Right-click on the folder you wish to add the data source to and select New -> New Data Source.
  2. Scroll until you find the adapter (e.g. Veeva) and click Next.
  3. Name the data source (e.g. CData Veeva Source).
  4. Fill in the required 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.
  5. Click Create & Close.

Introspect the Data Source

Once the data source is created, you can introspect the data source by right-clicking and selecting Open. In the dashboard, click Add/Remove Resources and select the Tables, Views, and Stored Procedures to include as part of the data source. Click Next and Finish to add the selected Veeva tables, views, and stored procedures as resources.

After creating and introspecting the data source, you are ready to work with Veeva data in TIBCO Data Virtualization just like you would any other relational data source. You can create views, query using SQL, publish the data source, and more.
