DigitalOcean ODBC Driver

The DigitalOcean ODBC Driver is a powerful tool that allows you to connect with live DigitalOcean data, directly from any applications that support ODBC connectivity.

Access DigitalOcean like you would a database - read, write, and update Droplets, Images, Volumes, etc. through a standard ODBC Driver interface.

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

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

Integrate DigitalOcean 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.

DigitalOcean uses OAuth 2.0 authentication. To authenticate using OAuth, you can use the embedded credentials or register an app with DigitalOcean.

See the Getting Started guide in the CData driver documentation for more information.

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

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