CData Connect Server

Query ActiveCampaign Data in MySQL Workbench

Create a virtual MySQL database for ActiveCampaign data in CData Connect (or Connect Server) and work with live ActiveCampaign data in MySQL Workbench.

MySQL Workbench allows users to administer MySQL environments and gain better visibility into databases. When paired with CData Connect (on-premise or Connect Server), you get live access to ActiveCampaign data as if it were a MySQL database. This article shows how to create a virtual database for ActiveCampaign in Connect and work with live ActiveCampaign data in MySQL Workbench.

Create a Virtual MySQL Database for ActiveCampaign Data

CData Connect uses a straightforward, point-and-click interface to connect to data sources and generate APIs.

  1. Login to Connect and click Connections.
  2. Select "ActiveCampaign" from Available Data Sources.
  3. Enter the necessary authentication properties to connect to ActiveCampaign.

    ActiveCampaign supports authenticating with the API Key. To connect to ActiveCampaign, set the following:

    • URL: This can be found in your account on the My Settings page under the Developer tab. For example: https://{yourAccountName}
    • APIKey: This can be found in your account on the Settings page under the Developer tab. Each user in your ActiveCampaign account has their own unique API key.
  4. Click Save Changes
  5. Click Privileges -> Add and add the new user (or an existing user) with the appropriate permissions.

With the virtual database created, you are ready to connect to ActiveCampaign from MySQL Workbench.
