The Azure DevOps ODBC Driver is a powerful tool that allows you to connect with live data from Azure DevOps, directly from any applications that support ODBC connectivity.

Access Azure DevOps data like you would a database - read, write, and update Azure DevOps Accounts, Approvals, Builds, Tests, etc. through a standard ODBC Driver interface.

How to Query Azure DevOps Data in MySQL Workbench

Execute MySQL queries against live Azure DevOps data from MySQL Workbench.

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

Connect to Azure DevOps 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 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.

Configure the SQL Gateway

See the SQL Gateway Overview to set up connectivity to Azure DevOps 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.

Query Azure DevOps from MySQL Workbench

The steps below outline connecting to the virtual Azure DevOps database created in the SQL Gateway from MySQL Workbench and issuing basic queries to work with live Azure DevOps data.

Connect to Azure DevOps through the SQL Gateway

  1. In MySQL Workbench, click to add a new MySQL connection.
  2. Name the connection (CData SQL Gateway for Azure DevOps).
  3. Set the Hostname, Port, and Username parameters to connect to the SQL Gateway.
  4. Click Store in Vault to set and store the password.
  5. Click Test Connection to ensure the connection is configured properly and click OK.

Query Azure DevOps Data

  1. Open the connection you just created (CData SQL Gateway for Azure DevOps).
  2. Click File -> New Query Tab.
  3. Write a SQL query to retrieve Azure DevOps data, like SELECT * FROM `CData AzureDevOps Sys`.Builds;

With access to live Azure DevOps data from MySQL Workbench, you can easily query and update Azure DevOps, just like you would a MySQL database. Get started now with a free, 30-day trial of the CData ODBC Driver for Azure DevOps and the CData SQL Gateway.
