The Azure Synapse ODBC Driver is a powerful tool that allows you to connect with live data from Azure Synapse, directly from any applications that support ODBC connectivity.

Access Azure Synapse data like you would a database - read, write, and update Azure Synapse. through a standard ODBC Driver interface.

Connect to Azure Synapse Data in DBArtisan

Use wizards in DBArtisan to configure Azure Synapse data as a data source.

The CData ODBC Driver for Azure Synapse seamlessly integrates Azure Synapse data into database management tools like DBArtisan by enabling you to access Azure Synapse data as a database. This article shows how to create an data source for Azure Synapse in DBArtisan and execute queries. You can then edit data visually and execute standard SQL.

Integrate Azure Synapse Data into DBArtisan Projects

If you have not already, first specify connection properties in an ODBC DSN (data source name). This is the last step of the driver installation. You can use the Microsoft ODBC Data Source Administrator to create and configure ODBC DSNs.

Connecting to Azure Synapse

In addition to providing authentication (see below), set the following properties to connect to a Azure Synapse database:

  • Server: The server running Azure. You can find this by logging into the Azure portal and navigating to Azure Synapse Analytics -> Select your database -> Overview -> Server name.
  • Database: The name of the database, as seen in the Azure portal on the Azure Synapse Analytics page.

Authenticating to Azure Synapse

Connect to Azure Synapse using the following properties:

  • User: The username provided for authentication with Azure.
  • Password: The password associated with the authenticating user.

You can then follow the steps below to register Azure Synapse data as a database instance in your project:

  1. In DBArtisan, click Data Source -> Register Datasource.
  2. Select Generic ODBC.
  3. Enter a name for the data source and select the DSN.
  4. Finish the wizard to connect to Azure Synapse data. Azure Synapse entities are displayed in the Datasource Explorer.

You can now work with Azure Synapse data as you work with any other database. See the driver help documentation for more information on the queries supported by the Azure Synapse API.
