Etlworks Salesforce Pardot connector allows the fastest and easiest way to connect to real-time Salesforce Pardot data. The connector works just like any other database connector.
Etlworks partnered with CData to provide access to Salesforce Pardot using industry-standard JDBC protocol. Read about CData Salesforce Pardot JDBC connector.

Work with Salesforce Pardot
Salesforce Pardot Data Model
- The connector models Salesforce Pardot entities like documents, folders, and groups as relational views, allowing you to write SQL to query Salesforce Pardot data.
- Stored procedures allow you to execute operations to Salesforce Pardot, including retrieving the access token and keeping it refreshed in OAuth 2.0.
- Live connectivity to these objects means any changes to your Salesforce Pardot account are immediately reflected when using the driver.
Read about the data model.
Stored procedures are available to complement the data available from the Data Model. It may be necessary to update data available from a view using a stored procedure because the data does not provide for direct, table-like, two-way updates. In these situations, the retrieval of the data is done using the appropriate view or table, while the update is done by calling a stored procedure. Stored procedures take a list of parameters and return back a dataset that contains the collection of tuples that constitute the response.
Read about available stored procedures in the data model.
To call stored procure from the SQL Flow or from Before/After SQL, use
EXEC sp_name params=value. Example:
EXECUTE my_proc @second = 2, @first = 1, @third = 3;
The connector supports several operations on data, including querying, deleting, modifying, and inserting.

Extract data from Salesforce Pardot
Extracting data from Salesforce Pardot is similar to extracting data from the relational database.
Here's how you can do this:
Step 1. Create Salesforce Pardot Connection which will be used as a source (
Step 3. Create a Flow where the
source is a database and the destination is a Connection created in step 2, for example, a relational database.
Step 4. Add a new source-to-destination transformation.
Step 5. Select the Salesforce Pardot Connection created in step 1 as a source Connection and select the data object you are extracting data from.
Step 6. Select
TO Connection, Format (if needed), and object (for example database table) to load data into.
Step 7. Click
MAPPING and optionally, enter
Source query (you don't need a query if you are extracting data from the Salesforce Pardot data object unconditionally).
Step 8. Optionally, define the per-field Mapping.
Step 9. Add more transformations if needed.
Load data in Salesforce Pardot
Loading data in Salesforce Pardot is similar to loading data into a relational database.
Here's how you can do this:
Step 1. Create a source Connection and a Format (if needed).
Step 2. Create a destination Salesforce Pardot Connection.
Step 3. Create a Flow where the destination is a database.
Step 4. Add new source-to-destination transformation.
Step 5. Select
TO Connections and objects (also a
FROM Format if needed).
Step 6. Optionally, define the per-field Mapping.
Step 7. Add more transformations if needed.
Browse data in Salesforce Pardot
You must have a Salesforce pardot Connection to browse objects and run SQL queries.
Use the Etlworks Explorer to browse data and metadata in Salesforce pardot as well as execute
SELECT queries against the Salesforce Pardot Connection.
