Query ClickUp Data in MySQL Workbench

Create a virtual MySQL database for ClickUp data in CData Connect (or Connect Server) and work with live ClickUp data in MySQL Workbench.

MySQL Workbench allows users to administer MySQL environments and gain better visibility into databases. When paired with CData Connect (on-premise or Connect Server), you get live access to ClickUp data as if it were a MySQL database. This article shows how to create a virtual database for ClickUp in Connect and work with live ClickUp data in MySQL Workbench.

Create a Virtual MySQL Database for ClickUp Data

CData Connect uses a straightforward, point-and-click interface to connect to data sources and generate APIs.

  1. Login to Connect and click Connections.
  2. Select "ClickUp" from Available Data Sources.
  3. Enter the necessary authentication properties to connect to ClickUp.

    Start by setting the Profile connection property to the location of the ClickUp Profile on disk (e.g. C:\profiles\ClickUp.apip). Next, set the ProfileSettings connection property to the connection string for ClickUp (see below).

    ClickUp API Profile Settings

    In order to authenticate to ClickUp, you'll need to provide your API Key. You can find this token in your user settings, under the Apps section. At the top of the page you have the option to generate a personal token. Set the API Key to your personal token in the ProfileSettings property to connect.

  4. Click Save Changes
  5. Click Privileges -> Add and add the new user (or an existing user) with the appropriate permissions.

With the virtual database created, you are ready to connect to ClickUp from MySQL Workbench.
