Connect to Amazon Marketplace Data in DBArtisan

Use wizards in DBArtisan to configure Amazon Marketplace data as a data source.

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

Integrate Amazon Marketplace 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.

To connect to the Amazon Marketplace Webservice (MWS), AWSAccessKeyId, MWSAuthToken, AWSSecretKey and SellerId are required. You can optionally set the Marketplace property. For more information on obtaining values for these properties, refer to the Help documentation.

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

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