Interzoid Cloud Data Connect with RapidAPI to Find Matching Company Names in Cloud Databases

If you are using Interzoid APIs through the RapidAPI Marketplace (meaning your endpoints and your billing occurs through RapidAPI), then here are instructions for using these endpoints through Interzoid's Cloud Data Connect product.

Using the Interzoid's Company Name Matching Advanced API via the Cloud Data Connect product allows you to execute the API in batch mode right out of the box without any programming, using a relational table or view (or equivalent) as the input data source. Each record in the source table (or view) is sent to the API sequentially, with your choice of generating a Match Report, displaying matching keys, or inserting similarity keys into a new table with the corresponding company name.

Storing the similarity keys in a table allows for SQL queries or matching within the database (or other data source if using ODBC) for customized usage.

Using the Interzoid Cloud Data Connect product through RapidAPI requires a RapidAPI API key obtained by selecting a freemium subscription to Interzoid's Company Name Matching Advanced product on the RapidAPI Marketplace.

After obtaining your RapidAPI API key, you must download Interzoid's Cloud Data Connect product for your operating system. It is available here for Windows, Linux, Apple Mac/Darwin, and Solaris.

Then, from the command line where the binary executable is located, run a command like the following examples (connection strings vary by data source):


To create a company name match report for a PostgreSQL database (also including AWS Aurora/RDS/Redshift, etc.):

$ izdc -function=companymatch -target=postgres -rapidapikey=YourRapidAPIKey
        -dsn=postgres://postgres:yourpassword@localhost/yourdatabase?sslmode=disable -algo=wide -table=companies
        -column=company

To create a company name match report for a MySQL database (also including AWS Aurora/RDS/Redshift, MariaDB, etc.):

$ izdc -function=companymatch -target=mysql -rapidapikey=YourRapidAPIKey
        -dsn=root:password@tcp(localhost:port)/database -algo=wide -table=companies -column=company

To create a new table containing similarity keys within a PostgreSQL database (also including AWS Aurora/RDS/Redshift, etc.):

$ izdc -function=companymatch -target=postgres -rapidapikey=YourRapidAPIKey
        -dsn=postgres://postgres:yourpassword@localhost/yourdatabase?sslmode=disable -algo=wide -table=companies
        -column=company -keysonly=true -gensql=true -createtable=true -newtablename=YourNewTable

To create a company name fuzzy match report from a Snowflake table:

$ izdc -function=companymatch -target=snowflake -rapidapikey=YourRapidAPIKey
        -dsn=user:yourpassword@yourinstance/yourdatabase/public -algo=wide -table=companies -column=company

To create a new table containing similarity keys within Snowflake:

$ izdc -function=companymatch -target=snowflake -rapidapikey=YourRapidAPIKey
        -dsn=user:yourpassword@yourinstance/yourdatabase/public -algo=wide -table=companies -column=company
        -keysonly=true -gensql=true -createtable=true

Create a new table containing company name similarity keys in CockroachDB:

$ izdc -function=companymatch -target=cockroachdb -rapidapikey=YourRapidAPIKey
        -dsn="postgres://userid:password@free-tier.gcp-us-central1.cockroachlabs.cloud:port/defaultdb?sslmode=require&options=--cluster=clustername"
        -table=companies -column=company -gensql=true -createtable=true

To run a match report from a CSV file:

$ izdc -function=companymatch -target=csv -csvfile=c:\data\10comps.csv -csvcolumn=1 -algo=wide
        -rapidapikey=YourRapidAPIKey

To run a match report from an Access database file (may need curly braces around the driver name):

$ izdc -function=companymatch -target=odbc -dsn="Driver=\Microsoft Access Driver (*.mdb,
        *.accdb);Dbq=C:\documents\yourdata.accdb" -rapidapikey=YourRapidAPIKey -algo=wide -table=companies
        -column=company
