Connect to Slack Data from PowerBuilder





Slack ODBC Driver

Slack ODBC Driver は、ODBC 接続をサポートする任意のアプリケーションからSlack のリアルタイムなデータに直接接続できるパワフルなツールです。

標準ODBC Driver インターフェースを使用して、データベースのようにSlack データにアクセス(Slack のUser、Channels、Messages、Files などの読み、書き、更新)します。

This article demonstrates how to use the CData ODBC Driver for Slack to connect to Slack data and execute queries in PowerBuilder.

The CData ODBC Driver for Slack can be used from any platform or development technology that supports ODBC, including Sybase PowerBuilder. This article shows how to connect to Slack data and execute queries from the Database Painter and controls such as the DataWindow.


Create a Profile for the ODBC Driver for Slack

Follow the steps below to use the Database Painter tool to create a database profile based on an ODBC DSN (data source name) for Slack. In the Database Painter, you can use wizards and the UI to work with Slack data.

  1. If you have not already done so, create an ODBC DSN for Slack. The DSN contains the connection properties required to connect to Slack data. You can use the Microsoft ODBC Data Source Administrator to create and configure DSNs. This is the last step of installing the driver. Required connection properties are the following:
    • OAuthClientId
    • OAuthClientSecret
    • CallbackURL
    Slack はOAuth 認証標準を利用しています。OAuth を使って認証するには、アプリケーションを作成してOAuthClientId、OAuthClientSecret、およびCallbackURL 接続プロパティを取得しなければなりません。 認証方法については、ヘルプドキュメントの「Slack への接続」を参照してください。 See the help documentation for a guide to creating a Slack DSN.
  2. In PowerBuilder, click Tools -> Database Painter.
  3. In the Objects window in the Database Painter, right-click the ODBC node and click New Profile.
  4. On the Connection tab, enter a name for the profile and select the Slack DSN in the Data Source menu.
  5. To view and modify a table, right-click a table and then click Edit Data -> Grid.

Using Slack Data with PowerBuilder Controls

You can use standard PowerBuilder objects to connect to ODBC data sources and execute queries. The following example shows how to retrieve Slack data into a DataWindow. You can add the following code to the open method:

SQLCA.DBMS = "ODBC" SQLCA.DBParm = "ConnectString='DSN=CData Slack Source'" CONNECT USING SQLCA; dw_channels.SetTransObject(SQLCA); dw_channels.Retrieve();
