Connect to Cloudant Data in DBArtisan

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

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

Integrate Cloudant 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.

Set the following connection properties to connect to Cloudant:

  • User: Set this to your username.
  • Password: Set this to your password.

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

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