Query DataRobot Data in MySQL Workbench

Execute MySQL queries against live DataRobot data from MySQL Workbench.

You can use the SQL Gateway from the ODBC Driver for DataRobot to query DataRobot data through a MySQL interface. Follow the procedure below to start the MySQL remoting service of the SQL Gateway and work with live DataRobot data in MySQL Workbench.

Connect to DataRobot Data

If you have not already done so, provide values for the required connection properties in the data source name (DSN). You can use the built-in Microsoft ODBC Data Source Administrator to configure the DSN. This is also the last step of the driver installation. See the "Getting Started" chapter in the help documentation for a guide to using the Microsoft ODBC Data Source Administrator to create and configure a DSN.

To connect to DataRobot, the following connection properties are required: User, Password, and PredictionInstance. DataRobotKey may also be required depending on your type of DataRobot predictions instance. If using the Predictions API, DataFile is required. The CSV DataFile should include a header row as the first row of the datafile. APIKey is not required, but can be supplied. If not supplied, the driver will handle obtaining an APIKey.

User, DataRobotKey, and APIKey are the credentials for the DataRobot account.

ProjectID, DataFile, and ModelId are the parameters for the project, dataset, and model type.

Configure the SQL Gateway

See the SQL Gateway Overview to set up connectivity to DataRobot data as a virtual MySQL database. You will configure a MySQL remoting service that listens for MySQL requests from clients. The service can be configured in the SQL Gateway UI.

Query DataRobot from MySQL Workbench

The steps below outline connecting to the virtual DataRobot database created in the SQL Gateway from MySQL Workbench and issuing basic queries to work with live DataRobot data.

Connect to DataRobot through the SQL Gateway

  1. In MySQL Workbench, click to add a new MySQL connection.
  2. Name the connection (CData SQL Gateway for DataRobot).
  3. Set the Hostname, Port, and Username parameters to connect to the SQL Gateway.
  4. Click Store in Vault to set and store the password.
  5. Click Test Connection to ensure the connection is configured properly and click OK.

Query DataRobot Data

  1. Open the connection you just created (CData SQL Gateway for DataRobot).
  2. Click File -> New Query Tab.
  3. Write a SQL query to retrieve DataRobot data, like SELECT * FROM `CData DataRobot Sys`.Predictions;

With access to live DataRobot data from MySQL Workbench, you can easily query and update DataRobot, just like you would a MySQL database. Get started now with a free, 30-day trial of the CData ODBC Driver for DataRobot and the CData SQL Gateway.
