Monday.com Icon Monday.com ODBC Driver

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

Access Monday.com data like you would a database - read Monday.com data through a standard ODBC Driver interface.

Create an RPA Flow that Connects to Monday.com Data in UiPath Studio



Use the Monday.com ODBC Driver to create workflows that access real-time Monday.com data without any coding.

UiPath is a Robotic Process Automation (RPA) platform with rich features and an easy-to-use UI that enables non-developers to create process automation. By using UiPath Studio, you can build an RPA program just like drawing a diagram. With the CData ODBC Driver for Monday.com, users can embed Monday.com data in the workflow.

This article walks through using the Monday.com ODBC Driver in UiPath Studio to create an RPA program that accesses Monday.com data.

Configure the Connection to Monday.com

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.

You can connect to Monday.com using either API Token authentication or OAuth authentication.

Connecting with an API Token

Connect to Monday.com by specifying the APIToken. Set the AuthScheme to Token and obtain APIToken as follows:

  1. Log in to your Monday.com account and navigate to Manage Applications in the left pane.
  2. Select the application that you would like to create a token for. You may need to create an application first.
  3. Click the Create token button to generate an APIToken.

Connecting with OAuth Authentication

Alternatively, you can establish a connection using OAuth (refer to the OAuth section of the Help documentation).

Connect UiPath Studio to Monday.com Data

Now you are ready to use Monday.com data ODBC DSN in UiPath Studio with the following steps.

  1. From the Start page, click Blank to create a New Project.
  2. Click Manage Packages then search for and install UiPath.Database.Activities.
  3. Navigate to the Activities and drop a Flowchart (Workflow -> Flowchart -> Flowchart) onto the process.
  4. Drop a database Connect activity (App Integration -> Datbase -> Connect) after the Start activity.
  5. Double-click the Connect activity and configure the Connection.
    1. Click the Connection Wizard
    2. Select "Microsoft ODBC Data Source"
    3. In Connection Properties, select your DSN (CData Monday Source) and click OK
  6. To store Connection info, create a variable and bind to Output in the Properties section. Choose DatabaseConnection in Output.

Create an Execute Query Activity

With the connection configured, we are ready to query Monday.com data in our RPA.

  1. From the Activities navigation, select Execute Query and drop it on the Flowchart.
  2. Double-click the Execute Query activity and set the properties as follows:
    • ExistingDbConnection: Your Connection variable
    • Sql: SELECT statement like SELECT Id, DueDate FROM Invoices WHERE Status = 'SENT'
    • DataTable: Create and use a variable with the Type System.Data.DataTable

Create Write CSV Activity

With the Connection and Execute Query activities configured, we are ready to add a Write CSV activity to the Flowchart to replicate the Monday.com data.

  1. From the Activities navigation, select Write CSV and drop it after the Execute Query activity.
  2. Double-click the Write CSV activity and set the properties as follows:
    • FilePath: Set to a file (new or existing) on disk (i.e.: C:\UiPath[id]-data.csv
    • DataTable: Set to the DataTable variable you created earlier

Connect the Activities and Run the Flowchart

If they are not already connected, connect each Activity that you created to complete the RPA project for extracting Monday.com data and exporting it to CSV.

Click Run to extract Monday.com data and create a CSV file.
