Query Amazon Marketplace Data in MySQL Workbench

Execute MySQL queries against live Amazon Marketplace data from MySQL Workbench.

You can use the SQL Gateway from the ODBC Driver for Amazon Marketplace to query Amazon Marketplace data through a MySQL interface. Follow the procedure below to start the MySQL remoting service of the SQL Gateway and work with live Amazon Marketplace data in MySQL Workbench.

Connect to Amazon Marketplace Data

If you have not already done so, provide values for the required connection properties in the data source name (DSN). You can use the built-in Microsoft ODBC Data Source Administrator to configure the DSN. This is also the last step of the driver installation. See the "Getting Started" chapter in the help documentation for a guide to using the Microsoft ODBC Data Source Administrator to create and configure a DSN.

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.

Configure the SQL Gateway

See the SQL Gateway Overview to set up connectivity to Amazon Marketplace data as a virtual MySQL database. You will configure a MySQL remoting service that listens for MySQL requests from clients. The service can be configured in the SQL Gateway UI.
