Connect to WooCommerce Data in RazorSQL

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

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

Create a JDBC Data Source for WooCommerce 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.woocommerce.WooCommerceDriver.
    • 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:woocommerce: and is followed by a semicolon-separated list of connection properties.

      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.

      A typical JDBC URL is the following:

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

Query WooCommerce 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.
