Azure Management ODBC Driver

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

Access Azure configuration & billing info like you would a database - query data through a standard ODBC Driver interface.

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

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

Integrate Azure 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.

Azure Data Management uses the OAuth 2 authentication standard. See the Getting Started section of the CData driver documentation for a guide.

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

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