Note: Before you can configure and use SnapLogic with CData Connect, you must first connect a data source to your CData Connect account. See Connections for more information.

You must also generate a Personal Access Token (PAT) on the Settings page. Copy this down, as it acts as your password during authentication.

  1. Download and install the CData Connect JDBC driver.

    1. Open the Client Tools page of CData Connect.
    2. In the Dev Tools section, click JDBC.
    3. Download and run the setup file.
    4. When the installation is complete, the JAR file can be found in the installation directory. The default directory is C:/Program Files/CData/CData Connect JDBC driver/lib.
  2. Log into SnapLogic.

  3. Click the Manager tab.

  4. Select a folder on the left to add the JDBC JAR file to.
