Connect to Azure DevOps Data in DBeaver



Manage Azure DevOps data with visual tools in DBeaver like the query browser.

The CData JDBC Driver for Azure DevOps implements JDBC standards that enable third-party tools to interoperate, from wizards in IDEs to business intelligence tools. This article shows how to connect to Azure DevOps data with wizards in DBeaver and browse data in the DBeaver GUI.

Create a JDBC Data Source for Azure DevOps Data

Follow the steps below to load the driver JAR in DBeaver.

  1. Open the DBeaver application and, in the "Database" menu, select the "Driver Manager" option. Click "New" to open the "Create new driver" form.
  2. In the Settings tab:
    • Set Driver Name to a user-friendly name for the driver (e.g. CData JDBC Driver for Azure DevOps).
    • Set Class Name to the class name for the JDBC driver: cdata.jdbc.azuredevops.AzureDevOpsDriver.
    • Set URL Template to jdbc:azuredevops:.
  3. In the Libraries tab, click "Add File," navigate to the "lib" folder in the installation directory (C:\Program Files\CData[product_name] XXXX\) and select the JAR file (cdata.jdbc.AzureDevOps.jar).

Create a Connection to Azure DevOps Data

Follow the steps below to add credentials and other required connection properties.

  1. In the "Database" menu, click "New Database Connection."
  2. In the "Connect to a database" wizard that results, select the driver you just created (e.g. CData JDBC Driver for Azure DevOps) and click "Next >."
  3. On the Main tab of the configuration wizard, set the JDBC URL, using the required connection properties: You can connect to your Azure DevOps account by providing the Organization and PersonalAccessToken.

    Obtaining a Personal Access Token

    A PersonalAccessToken is necessary for account authentication.

    To generate one, log in to your Azure DevOps Organization account and navigate to Profile -> Personal Access Tokens -> New Token. The generated token will be displayed.

    If you wish to authenticate to Azure DevOps using OAuth refer to the online Help documentation for an authentication guide.

    Built-in Connection String Designer

    For assistance in constructing the JDBC URL, use the connection string designer built into the Azure DevOps JDBC Driver. Either double-click the JAR file or execute the jar file from the command-line.

    java -jar cdata.jdbc.azuredevops.jar

    Fill in the connection properties and copy the connection string to the clipboard.

    Below is a typical connection string:

    jdbc:azuredevops:AuthScheme=Basic;Organization=MyAzureDevOpsOrganization;ProjectId=MyProjectId;PersonalAccessToken=MyPAT;InitiateOAuth=GETANDREFRESH
  4. Click "Test Connection ..." to ensure you have configured the connection properly.
  5. Click "Finish."

Query Azure DevOps Data

You can now query information from the tables exposed by the connection: Right-click a Table and then click View Table. The data is available on the Data tab.
