Connect to Google Ads Data in DBArtisan

Use wizards in DBArtisan to configure Google Ads data as a data source.

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

Integrate Google Ads 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.

Google uses the OAuth authentication standard. To access Google APIs on behalf on individual users, you can use the embedded credentials or you can register your own OAuth app.

OAuth also enables you to use a service account to connect on behalf of users in a Google Apps domain. To authenticate with a service account, you will need to register an application to obtain the OAuth JWT values.

In addition to the OAuth values, specify the DeveloperToken and ClientCustomerId.

See the "Getting Started" chapter of the help documentation for a guide to using OAuth.

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

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