Connect to Authorize.Net Data in DBArtisan

Use wizards in DBArtisan to configure Authorize.Net data as a data source.

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

Integrate Authorize.Net 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.

You can obtain the necessary connection properties on the Security Settings -> General Settings page after logging into your Merchant Account.

  • UseSandbox: The Authorize.Net API to be used to process transactions. If you are using a production account, this property can be left blank. If you are using a developer test account, set this to 'TRUE'.
  • LoginID: The API login Id associated with your payment gateway account. This property is used to authenticate that you are authorized to submit website transactions. Note that this value is not the same as the login Id that you use to log in to the Merchant Interface.
  • TransactionKey: The transaction key associated with your payment gateway account. This property is used to authenticate that you are authorized to submit website transactions.

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

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