Query Authorize.Net Data in MySQL Workbench

Execute MySQL queries against live Authorize.Net data from MySQL Workbench.

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

Connect to Authorize.Net 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.

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.

Configure the SQL Gateway

See the SQL Gateway Overview to set up connectivity to Authorize.Net 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.
