ActiveCampaign Icon ActiveCampaign ODBC Driver

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

Access ActiveCampaign data like you would a database - read, write, and update Accounts, Contacts, Deals etc. through a standard ODBC Driver interface.

Using the CData ODBC Driver for ActiveCampaign in PyCharm



Connect to ActiveCampaign as an ODBC data source in PyCharm using the CData ODBC Driver for ActiveCampaign.

The CData ODBC Drivers can be used in any environment that supports loading an ODBC Driver. In this tutorial we will explore using the CData ODBC Driver for ActiveCampaign from within PyCharm. Included are steps for adding the CData ODBC Driver as a data source, as well as basic PyCharm code to query the data source and display results.

To begin, this tutorial will assume that you have already installed the CData ODBC Driver for ActiveCampaign as well as PyCharm.

Add Pyodbc to the Project

Follow the steps below to add the pyodbc module to your project.

  1. Click File -> Settings to open the project settings window.
  2. Click Project Interpreter from the Project: YourProjectName menu.
  3. To add pyodbc, click the + button and enter pyodbc.
  4. Click Install Package to install pyodbc.

Connect to ActiveCampaign

You can now connect with an ODBC connection string or a DSN. See the Getting Started section in the CData driver documentation for a guide to creating a DSN on your OS.

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}.api-us1.com
  • 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.

Below is the syntax for a DSN:

[CData ActiveCampaign Source] Driver = CData ODBC Driver for ActiveCampaign Description = My Description URL = yourUrl APIKey = yourApiKey

Execute SQL to ActiveCampaign

Instantiate a Cursor and use the execute method of the Cursor class to execute any SQL statement.

import pyodbc cnxn = pyodbc.connect('DRIVER={CData ODBC Driver for ActiveCampaign};URL = yourUrl;APIKey = yourApiKey') cursor = cnxn.cursor() cursor.execute("SELECT LastName, Email FROM Contacts WHERE LastName = 'Smith'") rows = cursor.fetchall() for row in rows: print(row.LastName, row.Email)

After connecting to ActiveCampaign in PyCharm using the CData ODBC Driver, you will be able to build Python apps with access to ActiveCampaign data as if it were a standard database. If you have any questions, comments, or feedback regarding this tutorial, please contact us at [email protected].
