OData Icon OData ODBC Driver

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

Access OData services like you would any standard database - read, write, and update etc. through a standard ODBC Driver interface.

Use wizards in DBArtisan to configure OData services as a data source.

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

Integrate OData Services 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.

The User and Password properties, under the Authentication section, must be set to valid OData user credentials. In addition, you will need to specify a URL to a valid OData server organization root or OData services file.

You can then follow the steps below to register OData services 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 OData services. OData entities are displayed in the Datasource Explorer.

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