Automate HubSpot Integration Tasks from PowerShell



Are you in search of a quick and easy way to access HubSpot data from PowerShell? This article demonstrates how to utilize the HubSpot Cmdlets and the CData ADO.NET Provider for HubSpot for tasks like connecting to HubSpot data, automating operations, downloading data, and more.

The CData Cmdlets for HubSpot are standard PowerShell cmdlets that make it easy to accomplish data cleansing, normalization, backup, and other integration tasks by enabling real-time and bidirectional access to HubSpot.

PowerShell Cmdlets or ADO.NET Driver?

The Cmdlets are not only a PowerShell interface to HubSpot, but also an SQL interface; this tutorial shows how to use both to create, retrieve, update, and delete HubSpot data. We also show examples of the ADO.NET equivalent, which is possible with the CData ADO.NET Provider for HubSpot. To access HubSpot data from other .NET applications, like LINQPad, use the CData ADO.NET Provider for HubSpot.

Once you have acquired the necessary connection properties, accessing HubSpot data in PowerShell can be enabled in three steps.

HubSpot uses the OAuth authentication standard. You can use the embedded OAuthClientId, OAuthClientSecret, and CallbackURL or you can obtain your own by registering an app.

See the Getting Started chapter of the help documentation for a guide to using OAuth.

PowerShell

  1. Install the module:

    Install-Module HubSpotCmdlets
  2. Connect:

    $hubspot = Connect-HubSpot
  3. Search for and retrieve data:

    $region = "ONTARIO" $prospects = Select-HubSpot -Connection $hubspot -Table "Prospects" -Where "Region = `'$Region`'" $prospects

    You can also use the Invoke-HubSpot cmdlet to execute SQL commands:

    $prospects = Invoke-HubSpot -Connection $hubspot -Query 'SELECT * FROM Prospects WHERE Region = @Region' -Params @{'@Region'='ONTARIO'}

ADO.NET

  1. Load the provider's assembly:

    [Reflection.Assembly]::LoadFile("C:\Program Files\CData\CData ADO.NET Provider for HubSpot\lib\System.Data.CData.HubSpot.dll")
  2. Connect to HubSpot:

    $conn= New-Object System.Data.CData.HubSpot.HubSpotConnection("InitiateOAuth=GETANDREFRESH") $conn.Open()
  3. Instantiate the HubSpotDataAdapter, execute an SQL query, and output the results:

    $sql="SELECT Slug, PageViews from Prospects" $da= New-Object System.Data.CData.HubSpot.HubSpotDataAdapter($sql, $conn) $dt= New-Object System.Data.DataTable $da.Fill($dt) $dt.Rows | foreach { Write-Host $_.slug $_.pageviews }

Update HubSpot Data

PowerShell

Update-HubSpot -Connection $HubSpot -Columns @('Slug','PageViews') -Values @('MySlug', 'MyPageViews') -Table Prospects -Id "MyId"

ADO.NET

$cmd = New-Object System.Data.CData.HubSpot.HubSpotCommand("UPDATE Prospects SET Region='ONTARIO' WHERE Id = @myId", $conn) $cmd.Parameters.Add(new System.Data.CData.HubSpot.HubSpotParameter("@myId","skycomp-solutions-inc")) $cmd.ExecuteNonQuery()

Insert HubSpot Data

PowerShell

Add-HubSpot -Connection $HubSpot -Table Prospects -Columns @("Slug", "PageViews") -Values @("MySlug", "MyPageViews")

ADO.NET

$cmd = New-Object System.Data.CData.HubSpot.HubSpotCommand("INSERT INTO Prospects (Region) VALUES (@myRegion)", $conn) $cmd.Parameters.Add(new System.Data.CData.HubSpot.HubSpotParameter("@myRegion","ONTARIO")) $cmd.ExecuteNonQuery()

Delete HubSpot Data

PowerShell

Remove-HubSpot -Connection $HubSpot -Table "Prospects" -Id "MyId"

ADO.NET

$cmd = New-Object System.Data.CData.HubSpot.HubSpotCommand("DELETE FROM Prospects WHERE Id=@myId", $conn) $cmd.Parameters.Add(new System.Data.CData.HubSpot.HubSpotParameter("@myId","skycomp-solutions-inc")) $cmd.ExecuteNonQuery()
