Connect to Zoho Creator Data in Aqua Data Studio

Access Zoho Creator data from tools in Aqua Data Studio such as the Visual Query Builder and the Table Data Editor.

The CData JDBC Driver for Zoho Creator integrates Zoho Creator data with wizards and analytics in IDEs like Aqua Data Studio. This article shows how to connect to Zoho Creator 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 Zoho Creator 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, Zoho Creator.
    • Driver Location: Click the Browse button and select the cdata.jdbc.zohocreator.jar file, located in the lib subfolder of the installation directory.
    • Driver: Enter the Driver's class name, cdata.jdbc.zohocreator.ZohoCreatorDriver.
    • URL: Enter the JDBC URL, which starts with jdbc:zohocreator: and is followed by a semicolon-separated list of connection properties.

      The connector is already registered with Zoho Creator as an OAuth application.

      If you would prefer to use your own custom OAuth app, see the Help documentation.

      Built-in Connection String Designer

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

      java -jar cdata.jdbc.zohocreator.jar

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

      A typical JDBC URL is below:
