MariaDB Writeback Connector

Version 2

 

Intro

MariaDB is a community-developed, commercially supported fork of the MySQL relational database management system. Use this connector to export your data from a Domo DataSet to a MariaDB database. To learn more about Amazon MariaDB, visit their web page (https://mariadb.org/).

You export data to a MariaDB database in the Data Center. This topic discusses the fields and menus that are specific to the MariaDB Writeback connector user interface. General information for adding DataSets, setting update schedules, and editing DataSet information is discussed in Adding a DataSet Using a Data Connector.

Prerequisites

To configure this connector, you will need the following:

  • A Domo Client ID and Client Secret. To obtain these credentials, do the following:

    1. Log into your Domo developer account at https://developer.domo.com/login

    2. Create a new client

    3. Select the desired data and user application scope.

    4. Click Create.

  • The hostname or IP address of your MariaDB server, e.g. db.company.com.

  • Your MariaDB database or schema name.

  • Your MariaDB username and password. 

  • The port number of your MariaDB server.

You can also include the URL where your SSL CA Certificate is located, though this is optional.

Configuring the Connection

This section enumerates the options in the Credentials and Details panes in the MariaDB Writeback Connector page. The components of the other panes in this page, Scheduling and Name & Describe Your DataSet, are universal across most connector types and are discussed in greater length in Adding a DataSet Using a Data Connector.

Credentials Pane

This pane contains fields for entering credentials to connect to your Domo developer account as well as the table in your MariaDB database where you want your data to be copied to. The following table describes what is needed for each field:  

Field

Description

Domo Client ID

Enter your Domo client ID.

Domo Client Secret

Enter your Domo client secret.

Host

Enter your MariaDB database hostname.

Port

Enter your MariaDB database port number.

Database Name

Enter the name of your MariaDB database or schema. 

Username

For more information about obtaining these credentials, see "Prerequisites," above. 

Once you have entered valid credentials, you can use the same account any time you go to set up a new Domo-MariaDB connection. You can manage connector accounts in the Accounts tab in the Data Center. For more information about this tab, see Managing User Accounts for Connectors.

Details Pane

This pane contains a number of fields for specifying your data and indicating where it's going.

Menu

Description

Input DataSet ID

Enter the DataSet ID (GUID) for the DataSet you want to copy to MariaDB. You can find the ID by opening the details view for the DataSet in the Data Center and looking at the portion of the URL following datasources/. For example, in the URL https://mycompany.domo.com/datasources/845305d8-da3d-4107-a9d6-13ef3f86d4a4/details/overview, the DataSet ID is 845305d8-da3d-4107-a9d6-13ef3f86d4a4.
