DBArtisan でPayPal Data に連携

DBArtisan のウィザードを使って、PayPal data をデータソースとして連携利用。

CData ODBC Driver for PayPal は、DBArtisan などのデータベースツールとPayPal data を連携し、RDB のような感覚でPayPal データを扱えます。 本記事では、DBArtisan 上でPayPal データソースを作成する方法とクエリの実行方法を説明します。

DBArtisan Project にPayPal Data を連携する

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 provider surfaces tables from two PayPal APIs. The APIs use different authentication methods.

  • The REST API uses the OAuth standard. To authenticate to the REST API, you will need to set the OAuthClientId, OAuthClientSecret, and CallbackURL properties.
  • The Classic API requires Signature API credentials. To authenticate to the Classic API, you will need to obtain an API username, password, and signature.

See the "Getting Started" chapter of the help documentation for a guide to obtaining the necessary API credentials.

To select the API you want to work with, you can set the Schema property to REST or SOAP. By default the SOAP schema will be used.

For testing purposes you can set UseSandbox to true and use sandbox credentials.

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

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