Connect to Confluence Data in DBArtisan

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

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

Integrate Confluence 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.

Obtaining an API Token

An API token is necessary for account authentication. To generate one, login to your Atlassian account and navigate to API tokens > Create API token. The generated token will be displayed.

Connect Using a Confluence Cloud Account

To connect to a Cloud account, provide the following (Note: Password has been deprecated for connecting to a Cloud Account and is now used only to connect to a Server Instance.):

  • User: The user which will be used to authenticate with the Confluence server.
  • APIToken: The API Token associated with the currently authenticated user.
  • Url: The URL associated with your JIRA endpoint. For example, https://yoursitename.atlassian.net.

Connect Using a Confluence Server Instance

To connect to a Server instance, provide the following:

  • User: The user which will be used to authenticate with the Confluence instance.
  • Password: The password which will be used to authenticate with the Confluence server.
  • Url: The URL associated with your JIRA endpoint. For example, https://yoursitename.atlassian.net.

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

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