Integrate WooCommerce Data in Your Informatica Cloud Instance

Use the CData JDBC Driver for WooCommerce with the Informatica Cloud Secure Agent to access live WooCommerce data from Informatica Cloud.

Informatica Cloud allows you to perform extract, transform, and load (ETL) tasks in the cloud. With the Cloud Secure Agent and the CData JDBC Driver for WooCommerce, you get live access to WooCommerce data, directly within Informatica Cloud. In this article, we will walk through downloading and registering the Cloud Secure Agent, connecting to WooCommerce through the JDBC Driver and generating a mapping that can be used in any Informatica Cloud process.

Informatica Cloud Secure Agent

To work with the WooCommerce data through the JDBC Driver, install the Cloud Secure Agent.

  1. Navigate to the Administrator page in Informatica Cloud
  2. Select the Runtime Environments tab
  3. Click "Download Secure Agent"
  4. Make note of the Install Token
  5. Run the installer on the client machine and register the Cloud Secure Agent with your username and install token

NOTE: It may take some time for all of the Cloud Secure Agent services to get up and running.

Connecting to the WooCommerce JDBC Driver

With the Cloud Secure Agent installed and running, you are ready to connect to WooCommerce through the JDBC Driver. Start by clicking the Connections tab and clicking New Connection. Fill in the following properties for the connection:

  • Connection Name: Name your connection (i.e.: CData WooCommerce Connection)
  • Type: Select "JDBC_IC (Informatica Cloud)"
  • Runtime Environment: Select the runtime environment where you installed the Cloud Secure Agent
  • JDBC Connection URL: Set this to the JDBC URL for WooCommerce. Your URL will look similar to the following:

    jdbc:woocommerce:Url=https://example.com/; ConsumerKey=ck_ec52c76185c088ecaa3145287c8acba55a6f59ad; ConsumerSecret=cs_9fde14bf57126156701a7563fc87575713c355e5; InitiateOAuth=GETANDREFRESH;

    WooCommerce supports the following authentication methods: one-legged OAuth1.0 Authentication and standard OAuth2.0 Authentication.

    Connecting using one-legged OAuth 1.0 Authentication

    Specify the following properties (NOTE: the below credentials are generated from &service; settings page and should not be confused with the credentials generated by using WordPress OAuth2.0 plugin):

    • ConsumerKey
    • ConsumerSecret

    Connecting using WordPress OAuth 2.0 Authentication

    After having configured the plugin, you may connect to WooCommerce by providing the following connection properties:

    • OAuthClientId
    • OAuthClientSecret
    • CallbackURL
    • InitiateOAuth - Set this to either GETANDREFRESH or REFRESH

    In either case, you will need to set the Url property to the URL of the WooCommerce instance.

    Built-In Connection String Designer

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

    java -jar cdata.jdbc.woocommerce.jar

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

  • JDBC Jar Directory: Set this to the lib folder in the installation location for the JDBC Driver (on Windows, typically C:\Program Files\CData\CData JDBC Driver for WooCommerce\)
  • Driver Class: Set this to cdata.jdbc.woocommerce.WooCommerceDriver
  • Username: Set this to a placeholder value (since WooCommerce does not require a username)
  • Password: Set this to a placeholder value (since WooCommerce does not require a password)

Create a Mapping for WooCommerce Data

With the connection to WooCommerce configured, we can now access WooCommerce data in any Informatica process. The steps below walk through creating a mapping for WooCommerce to another data target.

  1. Navigate to the Data Integration page
  2. Click New.. and select Mapping from the Mappings tab
  3. Click the Source Object and in the Source tab, select the Connection and set the Source Type
  4. Click "Select" to choose the table to map
  5. In the Fields tab, select the fields from the WooCommerce table to map
  6. Click the Target object and configure the Target source, table and fields. In the Field Mapping tab, map the source fields to the target fields.

With the mapping configured, you are ready to start integrating live WooCommerce data with any of the supported connections in Informatica Cloud. Download a free, 30-day trial of the CData JDBC Driver for WooCommerce and start working with your live WooCommerce data in Informatica Cloud today.
