Connect to Acumatica Data in DBArtisan

Use wizards in DBArtisan to configure Acumatica data as a data source.

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

Integrate Acumatica Data 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.

Set the following connection properties to connect to Acumatica:

  • User: Set this to your username.
  • Password: Set this to your password.
  • Company: Set this to your company.
  • Url: Set this to your Acumatica URL, in the format http://{Acumatica ERP instance URL}/entity/{Endpoint name}/{Endpoint version}/.
    For example: https://acumatica.com/entity/Default/17.200.001/

See the Getting Started guide in the CData driver documentation for more information.

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

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