AWS Management ODBC Driver

Access AWS configuration & billing info info through ODBC

Use wizards in DBArtisan to configure AWS Management data as a data source.

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

Integrate AWS Management 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 authorize AWSDataManagement requests, provide the credentials for an administrator account or for an IAM user with custom permissions:

  1. Set AccessKey to the access key Id.
  2. Set SecretKey to the secret access key.
  3. Set Region to the region where your AWSDataManagement data is hosted.

Note: Though you can connect as the AWS account administrator, it is recommended to use IAM user credentials to access AWS services.

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

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