Connect to Bugzilla Data in DBArtisan

Use wizards in DBArtisan to configure Bugzilla data as a data source.

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

Integrate Bugzilla 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.

You can authenticate to your Bugzilla account using two parameters:

  • URL: The URL of your Bugzilla developer's page (the Home page).
  • ApiKey: API Keys can be generated from the Preferences -> API Keys section of your Bugzilla developer's page.

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

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